Hellboy: Web Of Wyrd, Everything We Know So Far


The action-packed roguelike brawler is set to launch in October, delivering an intense Hellboy experience filled with action.

Upstream Arcade developed and Good Shepherd Entertainment published the Hellboy action game, set for release on October 4th.

“Hellboy: Web of Wyrd” is a roguelike brawler with a unique story crafted in partnership with Dark Horse Comics, Mike Mignola, and Upstream Arcade. As a B.P.R.D. agent disappears, Hellboy embarks on a mission to explore the mysterious Wyrd, delving into its profound complexities.

The fresh launch will boast a visual style reminiscent of comic books, likely to captivate the inner comic aficionado within you.

Narrated by Lance Reddick, the narrative tracks Hellboy’s journey into The Wyrd, an otherworldly domain teeming with malevolent beings and animate sculptures determined to thwart his progress.

The artstyle is reminiscent of the comic book art style.

As you locate allies, unearth The Butterfly House’s enigmas, rescue your comrade, and strive for survival, your ultimate objective becomes emerging from this ordeal intact.

This game is incredibly gorgeous, especially for those of us who have long been fans of the Hellboy books. No other adaptation has really succeeded in capturing the shadow-heavy style of Mike Mignola’s universe and character painting in a moving 3D environment.

With adaptations often failing to grasp Hellboy’s charm despite promising to capture its essence, I consider this aspect especially noteworthy.

Hellboy in all his comic style glory.

The gameplay is based on third-person beat ’em ups with roguelike game components. Hellboy can combine ranged and physical hits to form combos. “Toughness” is a recharging buffer that temporarily protects Hellboy and other foes in the game from damaging effects.

Hellboy has a special ability called “Payback” that he can use to deal severe damage to adjacent adversaries. This is if he sustains too much damage. The players occasionally need to conduct investigations.

The game hasn’t revealed its system requirements yet. Although we do have information that it will launch on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
