Battle Dodgeball Title Strikers Edge Launches On Steam and PS4 This Month

They're replacing the dodgeball with spears and moving the court to the Thunderdome.

Indie publisher Playdius and the devs at Fun Punch Games have announced that their “dodgebrawler” Strikers Edge will launch at the end of the month. Strikers Edge will be coming to Steam and digitally to PS4 on January 30th. To help usher in the launch, Fun Punch will also be holding one last beta tournament that will put them against their users to determine what kind of perks Steam users will get at launch.

From the press release: “Designed to deliver the ultimate “Dodgebrawl” battle experience, Strikers Edge features a roster of eight ancient warriors from different eras and civilizations ready to enter the fray. Dodge, take cover, aim and scorch the earth with devastating moves! When medieval fantasy meets dodgeball, only the top Striker will be victorious in online or local multiplayer battles.

In addition to online and local multiplayer battles, Strikers Edge also offers a special Twitch Mode exclusively for Steam users. Simply activate the streamer mode in the options, start the stream, and invite your audience to mess with your match by choosing from a variety of modifiers and perks that spice up the gameplay.”

Looking at the game’s trailer I’m reminded of titles like Super Dodge Ball and Windjammers. Only instead of scoring points, the objective appears to be murdering opponents.
