In the land of Zenozoik, the city of Halstedom is ruled by a powerful clan, one which Ghat has betrayed by committing a terrible sin. Now, Ghat's brothers and sisters are pursuing him and his companion Deadra through strange and twisted lands, beyond the boundaries of the sane to the ends of the world. What was Ghat's crime and why did he commit it? The bare-knuckled brawl to reach the truth has just begun. A fascinating world of grotesque beauty--Equal parts breathtakingly beautiful and utterly disturbing, prepare to be swallowed up in a surreal fantasy world powered by the Source engine. Explore lush environments and confront bizarre animal-humanoid foes on your mission of discovery and redemption. Visceral first person fighting--Combat is up close, personal, and entirely satisfying. Start with a series of punches, kicks, and grabs, follow up with a knee to the enemy's face, and hit him with a finishing move to send him flying yards away. Learn new moves to mix it up.
At ACE Team we've released our first developer video that features a closer look at the combat mechanics & shows some examples of how a skilled player can combine the different moves to his advantage.

Check out our first ‘Developer Video' where we explain the basics of the combat mechanics and how combining moves can produce varied and exciting gameplay. The video displays some strategies that the player can use to get the upper hand during a fight.
Additionaly , we'd like to announce that Zeno Clash will include a new Survival Mode with a friends ranking system. The Survival Mode features several challenges in tower levels where the player will have to defeat all opponents to climb to the next level. Players will be ranked by performance and speed and they can compare their scores against friends through a leaderboard.
We took in consideration the feedback we were getting from the community and decided Zeno Clash needed a game mode with a competitive component where the players could enjoy the fun of the combat mechanics without having to go through the single player campaign again.
Here are a few screens of the Survival Mode in action:
