One of the coolest looking games based on a comic maybe ever, Hellboy Web of Wyrd is landing a iittle bit later than expected.
Big Red is back
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Hellboy make his way into a video game in any form, and honestly the previous title… eh, it wasn’t all that memorable. Web of Wyrd though, looks like it might be very much worth playing for big fans of the comic.
Originally expected to drop on October 4th, Good Shepard Entertainment has updated that drop date. So instead of arriving next week, fans will have to wait just a tad longer, with the game now scheduled to arrive on October 18th.
There’s no detail on why the delay is necessary, though the press release does say that developer Upstream Arcade is still working on making sure players “receive the best experience possible”. With that, the short pause certainly sounds like it’s just for technical stuff, and not for a repositioning on the calendar in what’s a loaded month for new games.
In any event, Hellboy Web of Wyrd is shaping up to be undeniably cool, and it seems like fans of the comic are finally going to be getting a game that well represents its unique flair.
Hellboy Web of Wyrd places players in the shoes of Big Red himself (voiced by Lance Reddick) as he is sent across the strange realm of the Wyrd. When an agent of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.) goes missing investigating the Butterfly House and psychic spikes are discovered across the globe, the world’s foremost cambion hunter of the supernatural – Hellboy – is called in. Track down this missing colleague while battling massive, fierce monsters across the Wyrd with devastating chains of melee and ranged attacks, all while building Hellboy’s power into something that rivals the fiercest warriors of Hell.Good Shepard Entertainment press release
Again dated for October 18th, Hellboy Web of Wyrd will arrive for Xbox and PlayStation consoles, the Nintendo Switch, and the PC.
