SKARA: The Blade Remains Is An Unreal Engine 4 Powered Hack and Slash
Coming to Xbox One as part of ID@Xbox.
When Epic announced that Unreal Engine 4 would be more indie friendly, they weren’t joking. For instance, 8-bit is a small, indie game developer, and they are now ready to unveil their newest game, SKARA: The Blade Remains, a massively multiplayer online versus third person hack and slash game. And this game will be powered by Unreal Engine 4, which means it can deliver high end visuals even with a lower production budget.
“We’re excited to be part of the Microsoft presentation at Ludicious,” commented Pablo Rodriguez, Creative Director at 8-Bit. “Being asked to contribute is a real honour and underlines Microsoft’s commitment to helping indie studios like us thrive in the next gen environment. Being part of the ID@Xbox programme is a huge benefit for the team and we’re stoked to be one of the first indies using Unreal-4 to release on Xbox One.”
The game will be coming to the Xbox One as part of the ID@Xbox program, and will be presented at the Ludicrous Zurich Games Festival this Friday, as part of Microsoft’s showing. Stay tuned for more.
