BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Are you, by chance, tired of Dragon’s Dogma and Dark Souls II and looking for something more invigorating? Well, then you should definitely check out Necropolis, a new game produced by Harebrained Schemes in collaboration with Bandai Namco. Necropolis will be released on multiple platforms, but the launch date was not disclosed.
Prepare for more gruesome hand-to-hand combat in stylish, cyberpunk-like game, brought to you by the makers of the frustrating Dark Souls. The new title is called Necropolis and it is currently under development.
As stated, the creator of this painstakingly and awesome game is Harebrained Schemes, the same company that brought us smooth games like Shadowrun Returns. Initially, the gaming studio wanted to release a PC and Mac version of the game, but, as fortune favors us, Bandai-Namco disagreed. Thus, the studio had to postpone the PC and Mac version, in favor of a multi-platform version of the game.
According to the studio’s statements, it would seem that when the game will go live, it will feature four different versions, for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Mac. And, as expected, Harebrained did not want to disclose any release date.
So far, we are left with a teaser trailer and a lot or promises. Still, the game itself deserves our full attention because, by the looks of it, it does seem promising.
What is Necropolis? Well, it’s pretty hard to enclose the game in a specific genre, but we can safely say that it’s a dungeon-crawling, hack-and-slash game. What’s even more awesome, is that all the scenes are hand-drawn, giving the game a stylish look.
Also, Necropolis takes the feeling of strangeness and otherworldliness to a whole new level thanks to the cyberpunk-like concept.
The game’s mechanics look good and the characters have some pretty fluidic moves. Now, all of you are probably wondering about the goal of the game. For what we can tell, there’s no specific goal. All that you have to do is to hack and chop up endless hordes of ruthless enemies.
We should also take into account that Bandai-Namco, Dark Soul’s progenitor was also involved in this project. Thus, the player has just one life and one chance to prove his prowess in front of his enemies. Too many hits from your adversaries and you’ll push the daisies.
And believe me that the developers had thought of so many ways in which the player could get killed.
Necropolis will be released on mutiple platforms pretty soon, but we can’t foretell how soon.
