Out now on PC, Griefhelm is a hack and slash duelling title that relies on tactical combat, set in a medieval era.

Developed by Johnny Dale Lonack and through Thorrnet Publishing, this is an award-winning game of skewering enemies, deflecting blows and overcoming your opponents in fast-paced duels.

The hack and slash reference only refers to the action and not the genre as Griefhelm relies on a strategic approach, not a button masher. In this case, expect a side-scrolling For Honor comparison that features well over 500 narrative responses in the campaign mode.
