El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron HD Remaster Celebrates Halloween With Steam Sale

Both the standard and digital deluxe editions of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron HD Remaster have been heavily discounted until November 1


Last month, Ignition Games’ over-the-top 2011 action title El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron received a pretty snazzy HD update on Steam. It’s a great game, featuring vibrant visuals, spectacular boss battles, and a killer sense of style. However, if you’ve been holding off on adding the game to your Steam library, now might be the best time to do so.

To celebrate Halloween, publisher crim Co. has slashed the price of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron HD Remaster. The Deluxe Pack (originally $53.97), which bundles together the digital soundtrack ($9.99) and art book ($13.99), has been slashed by 45%, bringing the price down to $26.38. However, if you don’t really care about those extra items, you can still get a pretty sweet deal. The stand-alone version of El Shaddai has been discounted by 20%, bringing the price down to $23.99.

If you want to take advantage of the offer, be sure to do it by the end of the weekend. The deal expires on November 1, 2021.

Andrew scored the remaster a 4/5 in his review last month, saying:

While I wouldn’t want to play it time and again, El Shaddai is an experience well worth having. Some of the sights and sounds in this game are so different from anything I’ve ever seen in a game that I can only marvel at them. The gameplay may be simple, but its ever-changing stages keep things fresh long enough for you to reach the end. It isn’t quite a holy experience, but it’s one I won’t soon forget.”
