Developer Binary Haze has scheduled the release of turn-based strategy title Redemption Reapers for February 22nd, due out for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows through Steam.

Redemption Reapers takes place in a medieval fantasy setting, where players take on the roles of a small band of mercenaries pitted against the conquering Mort armies. While the protagonists call themselves the Ashen Hawk Brigade, they are despised by the public and disparagingly referred to as "Reapers."

Battles take place from an overhead third-person perspective, providing a broader viewpoint of the decaying, besieged landscape. During a single turn, characters can traverse the battlefield before or after performing an action by expending Action Points (AP). An individual member of the Brigade can attack several foes in one turn by utilizing AP strategically.

Redemption Reapers is directed by Ender Lilies producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, collaborating with Metal Gear Solid series scenario writer Tomokazu Fukushima, and featuring music by Fire Emblem: Three Houses co-composer Rei Kondoh.

From the product page:
Descending suddenly on the world, the macabre Mort armies destroy nation after nation, leaving humanity decimated in the wake of their overwhelming terror and might. Amid the despair, a small, localized contingent crosses swords with the Mort—the Ashen Hawk Brigade. A cunning band that specializes in surprise attacks, they were once known as the Faithless Reapers and despised by the masses. Little did the public know that this very unit was about to become the only hope in resisting the Mort.
