Blasphemous, the gory indie Souls-like from Team 17 and The Game Kitchen, is getting a physical release on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on June 29. Unsurprisingly, there will be no physical edition for PC (do they even release PC games physically anymore?).
Dubbed the Blasphemous Deluxe Edition, the corporeal version of the game is being brought to life by Sold Out Games, who have also worked on Disjunction, Gestalt: Steam & Cinder, Wargroove, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, and many other notable titles.
This version will include a bloody handful of extra goodies, both digital and tangible, for fans who decide to pick it up, including:
- A Blasphemous game disc
- 32-track Digital Soundtrack
- 195-page Digital Artbook
- Digital Comic
- ‘Alloy of Sin’ and ‘Golden Burden’ In-Game Character Skins
- Sticker Sheet
- 180 x 290mm Poster of Cvstodia
Blasphemous is a brutally difficult game, taking much of its inspiration from the Souls series, perhaps even more so than similar titles such as Dark Devotion and Salt & Sanctuary. It’s not for the faint of heart and is chock full of unforgiving enemies and dastardly traps. It goes unsaid that, well, you’ll die quite a bit.
In our review, we said that Blasphemous excels in almost all the right ways, praising it for its “brutal and disgusting combat, delightfully sacrilegious and compellingly weird universe, and old-school” nature.
Since its 2019 release, the game’s developers have steadily provided support for it, adding Mac and Linux support on PC alongside a number of other updates and DLC. Limited Run Games previously released physical copies of the game, though those are currently sold out.
