Strafe release date confirmed with bloody new trailer

Pixel Titans and Devolver Digital have announced the release date for Strafe, and it’s way closer than we could have expected.

The super violent, retro-inspired shooter will launch on March 28 for PS4, PC and Mac.

Pixel Titans dropped the news with a suitably grotesque trailer. You can check it out in all its cartoony glory below:


Described as a “rogue-like first-person shooter” with procedurally generated environments, Strafe has you playing as a space marine embarking on a dangerous mission at the edge of the galaxy.

Featuring over 30 unique weapons and 20 blood-thirsty enemies, Strafe will require plenty of skill and wit if you hope to reach the end.
