We’re less than a month away from Mad Devils releasing on Steam and bringing with it a return to twin-stick shooterdom. Think Helldivers, but with a World War 2 occult vibe.
We got the game’s story from an artsy motion comic trailer that told us how the Mad Devils went from an Allied special forces squad to demon special forces squad in hell. Now we get to see how the game will play out in the latest gameplay trailer.
The Mad Devils’ sergeant takes the lead here as the first to awaken in hell with new demonic powers. You can see a lot of those powers involve some flashy area of effect abilities that look a lot like fire novas. There’s also gunplay and grenades to worry about as each playable character comes equipped with their own arsenal of weapons to wield against the forces of hell.
We also see that Mad Devils’ depiction of the underworld isn’t just going to be fire and brimstone. There’s a wintery forest, a western-style bar, and a dessert to shoot your way through, which all look fantastic. Note the Flak-88 artillery piece that pretty much guarantees there are some Nazis already waiting in hell to foil the Mad Devils’ plans.
Each level will be procedurally generated and include destructible cover elements, so don’t expect that flimsy fence to keep you safe for long. There’s also six playable characters each with unique powers and weapons that the sergeant needs to find in order to reassemble the squad and take down the evil Major Strauss.
Mad Devils releases on May 10 on Steam for $19.99, but won’t release on consoles until later this summer (that includes PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S).

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.
The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
