Midnight Fight Express has been confirmed to release for PS4 on August 23, 2022.
The work of just a single person, Midnight Fight Express is an isometric action brawler that has you tearing through the streets as you seek to take down an evil criminal syndicate.
Where Midnight Fight Express differs from other brawlers however, is in the emphasis that it puts on using the environment to your advantage. Often surrounded by multiple bad dudes, Midnight Fight Express allows players to leap over tables, smash enemies into nearby walls/counters/windows/mirrors… you get the idea. Quite simply, Midnight Fight Express looks like one of the best things you’ll play this year – a hyperactive marriage of Hotline Miami and Sifu if you ask me.
You can catch the full synopsis and bone-breaking release date trailer for Midnight Fight Express below:
You’re Babyface, a former member of the criminal underworld lured back into “the life” by a mysterious AI drone. Your mission against impossible odds: Fight your way across the city before sunrise, and prevent a citywide criminal takeover together.
Engage in a brutal and hyper-kinetic brawling ballet, using every environmental tool and street fighting technique at your disposal. Level up your abilities to take down the mounting onslaught of bozos, cronies, and crime lords.
Tangle with waves of foes with the finesse of an action-movie master. Punch, dodge, counter, and finish off enemies in fluid and visceral combat featuring mo-cap animation by motion artist and stunt performer Eric Jacobus. Custom difficulty modes allow any player to direct the action to their preference.
Level up, power up, and tap into a sprawling skill tree to unleash a dizzying array of devastating fighting moves. Develop your own signature style, and master over-the-top combos that leave the criminals wondering what hit ’em.
Complement your melee moves with knives, axes, and sledgehammers. Wield a wild array of pistol fire, shotgun blasts, and explosives. Weaponize everything from furniture to toilet plungers.
