Hellraid - New Trailer & Preview
Techland released a new trailer for Hellraid earlier this week that give us a glimpse of the game on the new updated engine they decided to use for development.
Hellraid is a dark fantasy action game from the company behind Dying Light, the Dead Island and the Call of Juarez series. It's a unique mix of melee, magic and ranged combat that can be played both in single-player and 2-4 player co-op.
Hellraid runs on the Chrome Engine 6, the same cutting-edge technology that brought to life Techland's Dying Light.The game will be released in Steam Early Access in Autumn 2014.
Also Hardcore Gamer has a new preview of the game.
The amount of weapons in the game seem to borderline Borderland’s arsenal count, as you can either obtain them through blacksmith shops or equip a weapon that an enemy used in attempt to slice you down to oblivion. Every weapon has its own fight style, from the slow but deadly cuts of a two handed sword to mythical wands. Compared to Skyrim, the combat looks much more fierce, fast and fashionably violent, showing promise to the overall gameplay.
TechLand also takes replayability into account when constructing Hellraid, as there will be plenty of different modes in the game. In addition to the Story mode, there will also be a mission mode in which players max out levels and attain some high number of points in order to compete against the world via leaderboard. Finally, it has a hoard mode, dubbed as Arena mode.
There’s no doubt that this Dark Souls-Elder Scrolls compound is an upgrade from both of the aforementioned titles. Hellraid looks to be a promising adventure, especially when you throw in the option to play through the game with your friends. Four player co-op doesn’t sound half bad. The game is still in development, which is unlucky for some of us who are really bad at waiting for top notch games like these to hit store shelves.
