Cult classic action game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is coming to PC via Steam in September.

Last year I penned a feature listing some of the games that seem to have been airbrushed from history. They are not bad games, just games that have been, well, sort of forgotten.

One of the titles on the list was Ignition Entertainment’s El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. This rather lavish and wild retelling of the Book of Enoch was first released in 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It was a critical favourite, but, perhaps understandably, it wasn’t a smash hit.

Despite my tongue-in-cheek feature, the game must have some fans. It’s now being re-released on PC via Steam on September 2, 2021. It will also be accompanied by some DLC extras available separately or included in the El Shaddai Deluxe Pack.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron DLC

  • Artbook – 90 pages of illustrations
  • Soundtrack download – 61 tracks from Masato Kouda and Kento Hasegawa

The Steam release also includes a free novel titled Lucifer’s Fall that covers the events after the game.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a game worth revisiting – its visuals are still mindblowing a decade on – but the PC version doesn’t come cheap. The standard edition is priced at $39.25/£53.66, and the Deluxe Pack is a cool $78.97/£61.47, including local taxes. Fortunately, you can grab 19% off the standard release and 45% off the Deluxe Pack in the two weeks after launch.

Take a look at the new release date trailer.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
