This had been released as a Stadia exclusive awhile back and finally releases on the PS4, Xbox One and Switch today. It's another gameplay shift for the series and functions as a prequel to the mainline games. It's presented in a 3/4th isometric view ala Diablo with ARPG mechanics. You can play as both Strife and War:

 

 

 

The game did review well when it released on Stadia:

 

 

I picked it up on the X today. I just have to support the series.

10 levels in on the X and absolutely loving it. The series is 4/4 for me. I remember being super worried about 3 but the 4/10‘s that game got was laughable. It had it’s issues but I ended up enjoying it immensely. This is a totally different animal but it’s an excellent action RPG with a really satisfying gameplay loop. You’re always finding some new secret or completing a quest that gives you rewards. The minute to minute combat is also a blast and keeps feeling fresh with all of the new attacks and gadgets Strife and War get. I really like that you can switch between them, too. For some reason I thought I’d be locked into a character in the beginning but I was pleasantly surprised to find otherwise when I started the game up.

The Decay level (8 I believe) has been my favorite of the game. The music is fantastic!

Started playing this the other night, and I'm enjoying it so far.  Playing more as strife than war, which means it's a little like Toddd McFarlane's Robotron :) 

 

It really seems they want you to go back and grind previous levels though.  I haven't been super diligent about getting all the secrets in each level, which could be why it's telling me I'm below the power recommendation for level 4.  It hasn't been too difficult yet, but we'll see how it goes.
