Vampires Vs. Terrorists in “B.A.T.S.”, Coming to PC, Consoles on 20 October

The MIX Games recently announced that throwback brawler B.A.T.S.: Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad will be released on 20 October for Nintendo Switch, PS4 (PS5 compatible), Xbone (SeXbox compatible) and Steam PC.

Co-developed by One Eyed Robot and Ritual Games, B.A.T.S. promises “vampires, terrorists, and gallons of blood” through a fast-paced, animated aesthetic and a healthy taste of the old ultra-violence.

Here’s the official breakdown of B.A.T.S. from The MIX:

B.A.T.S. is like a favorite Saturday morning cartoon, but with a gory twist. Created by animation industry veterans Yoram Benz (Cartoon Network, G4) and Matt Schwartz (Adult Swim Games, GameTap), this brand new bloody IP will make Happy Tree Friends look like the Care Bears! Play as Count Bloodvayne and the rest of Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad as they battle Scorpion Supreme and the ruthless terrorist organization, STING! (Syndicate for Terror and Illegal Non-Government, voted the world’s #1 terrorist organization).

Inspired by Action side-scrollers from the 16-bit era, B.A.T.S. is a fast-paced, arcade brawler-shooter-slasher that rewards precision play and pixel-perfect timing. Play like a pro or take your time running around killing terrorists, slicing off heads and sucking up blood at your own pace. It’s up to you! Either way, you’re gonna have a bloody good time.

Game Features:

Five levels to master

Five characters to unlock

Realistic BloodEFX technology

Historically accurate vampire powers

Hilarious and unfortunate deaths

Thousands of screams
