GUTS, an “ultra-violent Tarantino-style fighting game” currently available on PC (Steam), is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall, publisher Libredia Entertainment and developer Flux Game Studio announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via Libredia Entertainment:
GUTS is a hilarious ultra-violent Tarantino-style over-the-top game where players must dismember each other by chopping off arms and legs. Lost a limb or two? Worry not, the fight continues even when there are just two little stumps, and it keeps going until one fighter emerges victorious after dismembering all the opponent’s four limbs!
GUTS brings many innovations – concerning the other fighting games currently in the market. The main difference is that GUTS doesn’t have a Health Bar. Fighters must rip off their foes’ arms and legs and deliver a final dismembering blow to win. So it’s useless to keep kicking and punching your way around: you must dismember to win.
- Extremely bloody, fast-paced and violent matches.
- No health bar, no fight timer – players must dismember their opponent completely to win.
- Nine playable characters and 5 different stages.
- Over nine hours of single player gameplay to reveal all Character Stories.
- Local multiplayer and online ranked mode.
Additionally, Libredia Entertainment has released a significant update for the PC version that includes a multitude of improvements to the game, such as:
- Full rework of the move system, with re-balancing and streamlined controller input.
- After losing a limb, the remaining body parts now allow for more powerful combos and moves, giving the player a chance for a big comeback.
- All GUTS moves have been optimized and can be executed quicker and more fluidly, also every character now features two GUTS moves.
- Players can now specifically select the limbs to target with their GUTS moves.
- New blocking system; the blocks are easier to pull off and now feature an energy bar, that, if depleted, can lead to dizziness of the character.
- New lighting, many new graphic effects, higher frame rates and a more streamlined gameplay experience with optimized integration of bullet time lead to a more fluid gaming experience.
