Here comes the most violent Warriors game to date, not only do we have skull crushing action but an in-depth story that follows the original story too. In this issue, we delve into the characters and a variety of sub-weapons!

You'll not just be fighting humans this time, with Guts and the other Band of the Hawk members, you'll be cutting through the likes of both beasts and Apostles. However, don't take the Apostles too lightly as they are vastly different in strength to both human and monsters alike. Make sure to watch out for their destructive attacks!

Automatic Bowgun:

A Bowgun that rapidly fires arrows piercing the flesh of the enemy. Keep the enemy at bay and shave down their health before finishing them off. The bowgun is equipped to the left arm, besides this type, there is also a normal Bowgun available in the Golden Age Arc.

Hand Cannon:

Blow away monsters and Apostles alike with the Hand Cannon hidden within Guts' artificial arm. With this, you can control the tide of battle, but remember to equip it beforehand.

Throwing knives:

When Guts was a member of the Band of the Hawk, he was taught by his fellow member Jude the trick to correctly toss knives. They may be weak, but you'll be able to throw many of them at once as well as throwing them in all directions.


Light the fuse, throw it and prepare for a devastating explosion! A small sub-weapon with a huge impact! This weapon delivers a terrifying amount of damage to a massive area, but the downside is that it does take time until the Dynamite explodes after lighting the fuse.

Other Information:
"Berserk Warriors" follows the main Berserk manga's story with Guts and Griffiths including the famous Golden Age Arc. The game's story will also include scenes from the 2012-2013 Berserk anime movies.
As in the original story (and of course in this game), Guts does not yet wield his famous Dragonslayer Greatsword so you'll be able to control the various ages of Guts.

Then came the Black Swordsman...
After he overcame the hell that was the Eclipse, Guts began to burn with hatred and revenge and became the Black Swordsman.
With his Dragonslayer in one hand and an Automatic Bowgun and Hand Cannon attached to the other, Guts goes out to slay the evil spirits of the world.


Apart from Guts there are a variety of other playable characters, next up we have Guts friend and confidant; Griffiths.
Griffiths slices his victims using his skill and a variety of sword abilities accompanying his Sabre. The opposite to Guts's pure power, Griffiths fights with agility and grace as he destroys those in his path.

God Hand Femto:
Then came the Neo Band of the Hawk......
When the Eclipse became to its conclusion Griffiths revived the Band of the Hawk and still continued to do battle wielding his famous Sabre. Although unseen, will Griffiths be able to stand toe to toe in battle with the likes of God Hand Femto?

New Characters Jude and Casca:
Here come two more members of the Band of the Hawk; Jude and Casca.

Finally we have the first playable female character; Casca, although dont look down on her as she is a lot stronger than most swordsmen. She uses her sword and a variety of sword abilities to mow down her enemies.

First up is the guy with an expertise in throwing knives; Jude. Using his cutlass for close proximity battles as well as his throwing knives for ranged battle, Jude is a character that will not have many blind spots!
