The lights are on
Techland, the studio behind Dead Island and the upcoming Dying Light, has announced that its first-person fantasy game will have a new home. The title, which was slated for last-gen systems, is now coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 alongside a PC release.
Hellraid looks like it brings some of the combat over from Dead Island with skeletons and demons in place of zombies. The skill trees are more free-flowing though, and do not restrict players to a specific class.
Hellraid was originally planned for release last year, but was delayed until 2014 in October 2013. At that time, Techland said that the game would be released “when it’s done.”
The title is now being built on a new engine (Chrome Engine 6), which is also powering Dying Light. Hellraid will feature both single-player and co-operative play for up to four.
Hellraid will be out in 2015. Techland’s other new-gen title, Dying Light, is planned for 2014.

Looks like skyrim. That is the vibe I got.
Looks way better than Skyrim's awful combat, really interested in this!
Looks great and yet another game that will be tough to wait for! Can't wait to learn more.
In a new generation that already seems to be extremely lacking in RPGs aside from 1 or 2 gems, I cannot wait for this. It looks really good. Like a mix between Skyrim and a bit of Dark Souls.
They had me at co-op. Anything where I can run around and fight things medieval style with my buddy will definitely be something I play.
I definitely recognized some dead island zombie animations on some of those enemies. I had not heard of this game before, now I have another fun co-op game from Techland to look forward to besides dying light. :)
I really like how reactive the enemies seemed to be to being hit. Looks pretty and combat has potential but can't say much outside that.
I like the look of the game so far.
I've never even heard of this, but it looks like something I might be interested in. It also looks like something that could easily pan out to be mediocre. I guess we'll see!
Woo Hoo! Am loving all that I see. Especially co-op!
I have been watching this game since they first announced it. A little disappointed that they pushed it back again, but I am glad it is still going strong and getting more polish.
Wow. This looks awesome! Can't wait to play!
