New Bombshell Gameplay will Probably Blow Your Head Off

3D Realms showed off a new trailer for their upcoming shooter, Bombshell, during E3 last week.

Featured above, the new gameplay unleashes the protagonist, Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, who fights through hordes of post-human monstrosities. You can read more about the game’s world, enemies, and more, here in our previous report.

Bombshell is launching some time later this year across Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’re attending Quakecon this year, the shooter will also be playable there.

    Why is she called bombshell if she has brown hair?

    looks like how diablo should have played, powerful abilities, explosions and some form of dodge mechanic, here’s hoping the HP scaling and enemy AI don’t both ruin the experience by making it tedious.

    Needs more plot(s) IMO.

    Game looks like it could be a lot of fun. Voice acting was a bit of a turn off, though.

    I’m in love. Finally, a worthy action RPG to sink my teeth into.

    I would have been much more excited for this if it was standard third person instead of top-down and zoomed out. What’s the use of having an attractive high-poly heroine if you can’t follow behind her? The action would’ve been more intense that way imo. The cinematics look astounding though.

    The protagonist’s name is Shelly Harrison and she was a bomb disposal expert. The nickname was given to her by her unit for obvious reasons.

    The game that had a digitized Bruce Willis as a selling point? I always wanted to get that back in the day, but never got to play it. How was it?

    Looking forward to this. Gameplay is looking pretty fun. Hoping Shelly’s voice actress grows on me, which I think she might. John Saint John’s voice acting as the antagonist is great. Love that he’s still pushing himself. Is this single player only? I can’t remember for sure, but I think it is. Though I remember the devs mentioning they want the game to run on mid range laptops so you can take it to LANs.
