Microids and Bilibili to Release Roguelike Action Game “Warm Snow” on Multiple Platforms

Microids has partnered with Bilibili to bring the Chinese studio BadMudStudio's roguelike action game, “Warm Snow,” to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via the Microsoft Store on October 20. The game will be priced at $19.99.

“Warm Snow” was first launched for PC via Steam on January 18, 2022, and has since sold over two million units. It later became available on iOS and Android in China on December 15, 2022.

The game is set in a dark fantasy world where an eerie substance called “Warm Snow” has caused chaos, turning people into uncontrollable monsters. Players assume the role of a mysterious warrior named Bi An, whose mission is to confront the Five Great Clans and deliver the world from corruption, ultimately defeating the White Lotus.

Players can customize their gameplay by choosing weapons, powers, and elements that suit their fighting style. The game features a unique art direction inspired by silk paintings, creating stunning visuals that enhance the immersive storytelling experience. The game's universe draws inspiration from Chinese folklore, incorporating mythical creatures and breathtaking landscapes.

With its replay value, players can continue playing until they uncover the truth behind the Warm Snow and put an end to its devastating effects. Additionally, the console version includes the “Ash of Nightmare” content, introducing new mechanics, items, skills, weapons, and bosses.

Fans can watch the consoles announcement trailer on Microids' official YouTube channel and view screenshots in the gallery.
