Ninja Theory Studio's upcoming game, Bleeding Edge, is still a long way until getting ready to be released. However, if you want to, you can give this new multiplayer action game a try when registering for its alpha test, starting from tomorrow, October 24th.

According to the developers at Ninja Theory, the new Bleeding Edge game is a mix between the gameplay of third-person action games and the strategic aspect of many competitive esport games that we now are familiar with. The result of this combination is - by the words from the devs - the one-of-a-kind experience that we never have seen before.

Set in a futuristic cyberpunk world, the core gameplay of Bleeding Edge rewards cooperative playstyle - because you can not win on your own in those kinds of games. The playable fighters can be customized to further fit with each players' playstyle, as well as to be more suitable in the teamplay aspect. From what revealed just far, my guess is that this game's playable characters are not anchored in any pre-designed role like attackers or supports, instead, the choice of which role on the team will be determined by the player's playstyle.

A feature that is promised to be available when the game is released, is the training 'Dojo' mode - where players can test out character's control, builds, and skills against AI. This feature is accessible while you're offline, as well as when you are finding matches.

Along with that, the developers also announced the alpha test version of the game, being released tomorrow, October 24th. If you want to be a part of it, you can head to the game's official website to register for the alpha test.

Bleeding Edge is the first project of Ninja Theory after the acquisition of the studio by Microsoft, so this should come as no surprise when the game is available both on PC and Xbox One. Also, the cross-play and cross-save function between the PC and Xbox version is also included, so you can keep your progress on whatever device you're playing on.

The game will be available next year, on PC and Xbox One.
