March 2, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

First announced in May 2014, 3D Realms and developer Interceptor have introduced a gameplay trailer for Bombshell today, giving us a look at the isometric action role-­playing action.

Scheduled for a 2015 launch on PC and consoles, Bombshell stars Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, who lost her arm and her squad after failing to disarm an otherworldly bomb. Blamed for the explosion, she was discharged from the Global Defense Force and later approached by a private military contractor with the promise of a second chance: an arm constructed from technological remnants found in the wake of the incident.

Here’s what else you need to know about Bombshell:

Follow Bombshell’s quest for redemption as she fights through surreal alien worlds to rescue the President and save Earth using a growing array of special skills. With her own tech­-tree upgrades, destructive weaponry and fierce combat abilities, Bombshell and her countless arm configurations make her the perfect soldier to stop the Kyrr, an evil alien race lead by diabolical scientist­ turned ­madman Jadus Heskel.

Bombshell never lets up. Fast­-paced shooting, role­-playing style mechanics, and an exciting story evoke a level of depth and intensity the genre has never seen before. Bombshell blends first­-person shooting controls with an isometric perspective, empowering the player to save the world with deadly speed and accuracy.
