The lights are on
Techland has released new screenshots and details for their latest action title, Hellraid. From the developer that brought gamers Call of Juarez and Dead Island, Hellraid looks like a title going in a different direction from western shooters and survival horror.
Using a class system, players can choose between warrior, mage, paladin, and rogue and can further customize characters by upgrading abilities through skill trees and customizing weapons. Hellraid aims to combine RPG elements with hack and slash combat from a first-person perspective.
Hellraid can be played in both single-player and co-op mode for the story campaign, although Techland claims that the co-op mode offers more challenges for the player and friends to take on. A cooperative mode for online multiplayer is also available.
Slated for release in 2013, Hellraid will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
It kinda looks like a mobile game, but it still looks like something I would be interested in.
If it's more like the first Dead Island, I'm in. Riptide... I don't know, there's something about it that makes me not like it as much.
Fantasy first person AND couch co-op? Color me interested.
