Revamped Slain: Back From Hell Hits Xbox One Today

After being released on PC then pulled then released again on PC and PS4, Slain: Back from Hell is coming to Xbox One today for $14.99.

Slain: Back from Hell is a gothic-tinted action-platformer with obvious Konami-inspired roots. But its original PC release in March was met with overwhelmingly negative feedback when players played a poor, "reckless" game instead of the game they thought they were promised. Developer Wolf Brew Games acknowledged the criticism and came back in August with a whole new game with an exhaustive but necessary changelist.

The combat, dialogue, difficulty, bosses, enemies, and more were all overhauled, improved, and streamlined for this Back from Hell release.

The PlayStation Vita version will be released on November 1 and will be Cross-Buy with the PlayStation 4 version that is already out.


Our Take
Plenty of bad games stay bad so it's refreshing that Slain has gotten a second chance. Granted, it was funded through Kickstarter so if there's a base to please, it's the people that helped you make your game in the first place. But now that Slain looks to be a decent game, it's good to spread the love on more platforms.
