Hammer of Virtue, the skill-based action game set in a fully destructible land of tomorrow from developer No Pest Productions, sets its sights on a late 2022 launch on PlayStation 5 simultaneously alongside the previously announced Steam via Windows PC release.
Drop into a futuristic world where terrorist organizations deploy cybernetically-enhanced, armored animals to reap chaos. Faced with such threatening foes, the Unified Realm elects to fight metal with metal and restore order through aggressive extermination tactics. Enter the battlefield as the Unified Realm’s greatest hope of victory, a melee soldier armed with a powerful hammer and tough-as-nails armor, then deliver crushing blows against enemies one hammer strike at a time.
Fight through more than 20 stages featuring legions of enemies and fully destructible environments. Master a skill-based action combat system with directional blocking and attack systems that require reading each enemy’s movements. Send sword-wielding monkeys flying with brutal uppercuts, smash robotic raptors into abandoned buildings, and create carnage in a challenging, physics sandbox ripe for emergent gameplay opportunities.
The sword might be mightier than the pen, but in Hammer of Virtue, a super-powerful hammer puts them both to shame. Develop a deep understanding of a rewarding combat system to sow chaos during each encounter. Utilize destructible environments and over-the-top ragdoll physics to bowl enemy animals into one another and topple trees on unsuspecting armored bears. Time high and low blocks before unleashing counterattacks that bring even the mightiest of foes to their knees.
“Hammer of Virtue is all about providing players with an emergent playground of chaos and comedic carnage,” said Jens Kolhammar, programmer and owner of No Pest Productions. “There’s nothing more satisfying than turning a run-of-the-mill fight against a handful of cyber raptors into a building-smashing showdown, and I can’t wait to share the experience with players on Steam and PlayStation consoles later this year!”
Hammer of Virtue will launch on Steam for Windows PC and PlayStation 5 in late 2022 for $19.99. It features English, Japanese, Korean, and German-language support. For more information, visit the official website and wishlist Hammer of Virtue on Steam today.
