If you liked Battlerite, you're probably going to really enjoy Bleeding Edge. Having launched today amongst a COVID-19 epidemic, Ninja Theory probably figured people are at home and can play it. That said, it's probably a terrible time to launch a very specific game (arena) that isn't free to play. With a £30 price tag, it feels steep for what there is. 

Despite some gorgeous characters to play, and some fun mechanics, its reviews aren't glowing. A lack of regional match-making, no ranked ladder, restricted to console and 60fps (due to cross-play) doesn't bode well for the PC market. I also think the price tag pretty much ensures it'll struggle to gain any traction.

There's a trailer below, if you fancy something new and a little bit different.
