IGN Japan has shared a new video, showcasing 14 minutes of gameplay footage from the gamescom 2022 demo of Wanted: Dead. Since this is a video of someone playing the game, you may not like the way they do it. Nevertheless, this video will give you an idea of the game’s combat mechanics, so be sure to watch it.
Wanted: Dead is inspired by the mechanically rich combat systems found in titles like Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The game aims to blend melee sword combat with exciting gunplay. Additionally, it will have a unique limb severing system.
Players take on the role of Lt. Hannah Stone, stepping into a dark and dangerous vision of cyberpunk Hong Kong as leader of the Zombie Squad. Zombie Squad is an elite team who work outside the purview of the traditional police force. Players can expect a number of combat skills that combine style and substance. Additionally, the game will offer cool slow-motion sequences and the ability to issue orders to teammates. Furthermore, there will be a limb severing mechanic that will change enemy attack patterns.
Wanted: Dead will release on February 14th, 2023.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
