Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Le Cartel Studio have announced that Mother Russia Bleeds, a new side-scrolling beat ’em up will release September 5 for PC, Mac, and Linux.
The game is described by the publisher as “an ultra-violent co-op brawler overflowing with an unmistakable style and unforgettably brutal action for up to four players at once.” At launch, multiplayer will only be available locally, however the developers plan to release online co-op down the road.
“Set in an alternate U.S.S.R, the story centers on a desperate crew of imprisoned street fighters that must overcome an oppressive criminal authority and forced drug addictions through any means necessary. Battle solo or alongside friends in an exceptional story mode campaign or harden your resolve in the savage Survival Mode.”
