RPGWatch @ Gamescom - Dark Envoy Preview

by Myrthos, 12:27

At Gamescom I visited Event Horizon to check out Dark Envoy, a game where time is a scarce resource and where tactics play an important role in combat.

Dark Envoy is a game that mixes real-time exploration with turn-based tactical combat. By itself that is nothing special, but they have added some extras to this mix. The setting of the game is a combination of magic and technology, which the developers have labeled as Technomancy and to help with the story they work together with Michael Chatfield, an American author of Sci-fi, fantasy and LitRPG books.  

You start the game with two characters, a brother and a sister. They want to fix a sky ship and travel the world. But unwillingly they are pulled into something that is much bigger than they are. As they go along, they will meet other NPCs that they can recruit, each of which has their own side story. At the moment there are 15 NPCs designed using different classes. Some of them are very rare special NPCs that are hard to find, but that players probably will want to have in their team. Next to the NPCs, mercenaries can be recruited, who have no story and will fight for a share of the loot.

Find Dark Envoy at Hall 10.1 A 71 this week at Gamescom

Cologne, Germany - August 20, 2019 - Building off the positive response to the announcement of Event Horizon's upcoming title Dark Envoy, the developers have released a new trailer showing a taste of what gameplay awaits Gamescom attendees this week. A non-linear RPG, Dark Envoy offers free world exploration with an emphasis on tactical combat layered with lore and strategy.

Explore the world using a Skyship as your base of operations. Seek mythical locations, and procedurally generated dungeons with optional tactical objectives. Choose wisely where to travel however, as the world map adjusts with the passing of in-game time. Locations will randomly respawn, becoming progressively more challenging for you and your party.

Dark Envoy - Announced

by Silver, 04:47

Dark Envoy is described as a non-linear RPG which offers free world exploration and an emphasis on tactical combat layered with lore and strategy.

loading...

As the Human Empire fights for dominance against the remnants of the Old Races, Dark Technology clashes against Magic — neither side is good and just. The strong prey on the weak taking whatever they please. This is total war, where the defeated will be entirely wiped from the pages of history.

Against this backdrop, Kaela and Kiros aspire to repair their parents’ broken airship in order to travel the world, seeking to face whatever dungeons, challenges, and riches may come their way. They are hungry to learn how to fight, build, and forge alliances and friendships across the known lands. Together, they search for ancient relics and forgotten places. Together, they look to leave a legacy in their wake…

Yet, their journey begins in blood and tragedy.

Your choices are everything and they can reshape your life in this place, even the world around you. Will you become strong enough to survive the journey and reach the end? Will you find the power to change this grim reflection of our own world? Will your legacy be one of peace and honor, or stained by bloodshed and destruction?

When you look in the mirror at the end, what reflection will you see there?
