Severed Steel Announced

Indie publisher Digerati and developer Greylock Studio announce Severed Steel, an acrobatic first-person shooter coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Q3 of this year. This features destructible voxel environments and no weapon reloads, as the protagonist is missing an arm. Gameplay is fast and fluid, inspired by games such as Mirror's Edge, as can be seen in the Announce Trailer. Here's more on the game, which is the output of a "seasoned hobbyist programmer and modder" funded by an Epic MegaGrant:
A single-player FPS, Severed Steel casts players in the role of Steel. After losing an arm in an accident, Steel is abandoned – like many before her – by nefarious mega-corporation, EdenSys. In the name of all those crushed under the boot of her former paymaster, Steel sets her sights on revenge.

Inspired by games such as Black, Mirror's Edge, F.E.A.R., and Half-Life mod 'The Specialists', Severed Steel focuses on nimble, acrobatic combat and features a fluid stunt system. Steel can wall run, dive, slide, and flip around the destructible environments that comprise EdenSys' Arctic superstructure.

Steel's residual limb means she can't reload weapons. When a gun is out of ammo, she must find a replacement, which often means stealing a weapon straight from the hands of an enemy. During the campaign, Steel is fitted with a permanent secondary weapon – an arm cannon capable of blowing holes in pretty much anything that gets in its way.

Awarded an Epic MegaGrant, Severed Steel is the debut game from Greylock Studio, aka Matt Larrabee. A seasoned hobbyist programmer and modder, and former middle-school computer science teacher, Larrabee taught himself C++. After gaining invaluable experience with the open Morrowind Engine, he moved onto Unreal Engine 4 and began work on Severed Steel in 2019.

I also found animating believable reload cycles to be challenging.
