Well now, there’s an interesting new take on the Souls-style of games.
The Dark Souls structure can lend itself to a huge amount of settings and gameplay styles, as opposed to the fantasy and Lovecraftian horror styles we have so far traditionally seen the genre stick to. We started seeing some variation this year- Nioh and The Surge both stand out- and now, another game is throwing its hat in the ring presenting an entirely different kind of take on the Dark Souls formula.
That game is Immortal: Unchained, a new game being developed by Toadman Interactive. Toadman is a development team based in Sweden, formed by veterans who have worked on Fable, Killzone, The Witcher, Warhammer, Just Cause, Battlefield, and more.
The game will be published by Sniper Elite and Elite Dangerous publisher Sold Out Sales & Marketing, who will be releasing it in the second quarter of 2018 for Ps4, Xbox One, and PC. Make sure to check out the launch trailer and screenshots for the game for yourself below.
