Redeemer: Enhanced Edition is now available on Windows PC via Steam.
The game first released on Steam in 2017. A significantly upgraded Enhanced Edition came to PS4, Switch, and Xbox One last month, and now those upgrades have been added to the Steam version. The upgrade is also accompanied by a hefty 90% discount.
Redeemer is a top-down brawler full of brutal melee kills where you play as Vasily, a cyborg assassin that used to do wet work for the largest cybernetics company in the world. Over 20 years after he became a target himself, Vasily’s past has caught up with him, forcing him to go on a roaring rampage against his former employers to finally gain peace and quiet.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
Play as Vasily, an elite operative who once worked for one of the biggest Cybernetic Weapons Manufacturers in the world. Officially working in security, you were tasked with infiltration, assassination, extortion and even torture. When eventually the corporation decided to turn you into one of its cyborg soldiers, you manage to narrowly escape to a secluded monastery deep in the snowy mountains.
For 20 years you tried to find peace and harmony amongst your fellow monks, but you are still too haunted by your murderous past to find either. Now after all of these years the corporation is finally closing-in on your location, and in so doing they have given you one last shot at redemption.
