Visually-impressive Hellboy: Web of Wyrd dated for October, plus get your first look at it in action

Hellboy: Web of Wyrd, more or less, directly adapts comic book legend Mike MIgnola’s unique art style to a video game.

Like it jumped off the page

If you know the art of Mike Mignola, then you know just how macabre and creepily crafted the world of his most famous creation is. And if you don’t, well then you might as well just check out the fist full trailer for Hellboy: Web of Wyrd. That’s because developer Upstream Arcade’s game is the absolute spitting image of a Hellboy comic… just, you know, in walking and talking form.

Speaking of “talking”, adding another layer of cool to the graphics is the voice of Lance Reddick. Hellboy might just have been the actor’s final role before suddenly passing in March of this year, and if that’s the case, then it’s just that much more special.

Like the comics, Hellboy Web of Wyrd sends Hellboy on a series of vastly different and wholly unique adventures: all tied to the mysterious legacy of The Butterfly House. When an agent of the B.P.R.D. is sent on a reconnaissance mission to the mansion and promptly goes missing, it’s up to you – Hellboy – and your team of Bureau agents to find your missing colleague and uncover the secrets of The Butterfly House. Chain together hard-hitting melee and ranged attacks to fight a diverse array of increasingly nightmarish enemies in this incredible new entry in the Hellboy universe. 

Good Shepard Entertainment press release

Now that you’ve seen it in action, there’s that launch date to mention. Hellboy: Web of Wyrd will be adding to the absolute pile of great looking games hitting retail this fall, with an October 4th launch on deck for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, the Switch, and the PC.

So budget a little more time… if that’s at all possible.
