Nacon and Spiders showed off a new trailer for Steelrising this week at E3. The game takes place in an alternate history 1789 in Paris where the French Revolution took a backseat to a robot uprising. The robots are under command of King Louis XVI because he's just a big ol' jerk.

You will play as Aegis, an "outstanding automaton and bodyguard of Marie-Antoinette." Aegis will make their way through the streets of Paris that are now crawling with machines.

Steelrising is looking at a 0222 release for both PC and unspecified consoles.

1789 is the year of the Storming of the Bastille and the start of the monarchy's downfall. Steelrising depicts an alternative version of history: what if King Louis XVI, who loved clockmaking, had built an army of robots capable of quelling the insurrection? Powerful and cruel, this army spares no one and violently punishes rebels. Paris is burning and bleeding. Men, women and children are being systematically massacred.

In this terrifying chaos, you play as Aegis, an outstanding automaton and bodyguard of Marie-Antoinette. Appointed by the Queen, Aegis will have to navigate through a Paris crawling with machines. Each fight with these mechanical enemies is a challenge where the player's skills are subjected to a tremendous ordeal. Such is the price to pay for those who want to change the course of history.
