Based on the world-renowned manga and anime series Berserk by Kentarou Miura, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk closely follows the events of the most well-known story arcs from the iconic manga’s narrative, focusing on the violent and heroic adventure of Guts, Casca, the Band of the Hawk, and Guts’ Traveling Party throughout their perilous battle against a sinister realm of demonic fiends.
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk blends the signature one versus thousands style action from the long-running Warriors franchise with the grim and gruesome atmosphere of Berserk. Fans of both series and newcomers alike will enjoy an action-packed adventure as they harness the powers of its famous characters, such as Guts and Griffith, to slash and smash through hordes of enemies.
Those who are looking for a challenge will be able to face off against an endless swarm of enemies in the game’s Endless Eclipse Mode, where players can prove their worth as they go toe to toe with countless enemies in the formidable Eclipse dimension. Offering a unique and challenging respite from the main story, the new mode has players fighting for their life as they rush to complete various missions to overcome the deadly Eclipse. Those who manage to withstand the challenge will find themselves better equipped to tackle the main game mode.
