Okay, hear us out: Pistol Whip, except you’re a wizard




Last summer, we unleashed the Overdrive Season on Pistol Whip, which included a Scene called Majesty. Picking a favourite Pistol Whip Scene is like picking a favourite child, but Majesty threw the script out the window and plunged us into glorious medieval madness. Trebuchet battles! Jousting knights! Dragons! 


A little peek behind the scenes for you: we played Majesty and collectively said, “This rules, and we’re gonna make a whole Collection out of it, and no one can stop us.”


And what music genre would be more fitting for such a Collection than power metal?




Enter VOIDSLAYER: three all-new Pistol Whip Scenes that together form a journey through furious battlefields, besieged villages, all the way to the magical cosmos themselves. From the new interactables, to the devilish new enemies, to the swords n’ spells style weapons, we took the medieval warfare introduced by Majesty and cranked it up to eleven here. (And don’t worry, there still be dragons!)


But this Collection has more than just new Scenes; be sure to check out our two new Modifiers, too.





Colour Match forces you to think quickly, as your weapons will be colour coordinated to enemies on the field: only the shots from the matching coloured gun will hit. This is one of those Modifiers that, as soon as you’ve mastered it, will make you want to go back and replay every single Scene, just to see how much it changes the groove.


Meanwhile, the Deflector modifier gives you the ability to send bullets ricocheting back at your foes. (And if you’re also wielding the Metal Gauntlet, remember to throw up the horns with every deflection. You won’t get any extra points or anything, but you’ll feel extremely cool, and our dev team will all cheer.)





If you can’t tell, we’re a bunch of metalheads ourselves, which means we’re extra thrilled about VOIDSLAYER’s music selection. With wailing guitar solos and furious kick drums from the likes of Bloodbound, Brothers of Metal, and Firewind, these are some of the most unstoppable, fist-in-the-air Pistol Whip songs yet.


If you’re ready to meet the call of destiny, be ready to raise thy sword on June 6, when “Hero’s Dawn,” the first of VOIDSLAYER’s three new Scenes, will arrive on all supported platforms, with the second and third Scenes following in the weeks after! Awake Hero, and become legend!


Love,

Cloudhead Games
