Unreal Engine 4 Powered ARPG Age of Blood Gets Greenlit on Steam
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Age of Blood, an ARPG game by the indie developers Galaxy Interactive, has recently been greenlit on Steam as well as a complete re-wrap of everything. The game had started out based on UDK, but the goals for the game just weren’t within reach with that. So an almost complete recode and now it all runs on the Unreal Engine 4 and looks better than ever.
Playing as either Cael or Ariet, adventurers find themselves marooned on the Island of Heavens Fall, but after a failed invasion our heroes find themselves locked in a battle against the Scourge, a technologically advanced and psychically enhanced menace not of this world.
Harnessing the power of the gods both Cael and Ariet utilise a vast array of skills specialising in either Necromancy, Demonology, or Angelology. As Cael you’ll engage in bone-breaking close-combat or annihilate your foes from afar in third-person magic based combat incorporating forbidden magic and summoned monsters.
Trapped on Heaven’s Fall island, players will discover long forgotten temples, be challenged to solving nefarious puzzles, explore perilous locations, and ultimately uncover the secrets of the Scourge and a mysterious ancient race with the ultimate goal of banishing the Scourge from the world once and for all.
With the new engine to power everything, a new video and new screenshots have been released to showcase the advancements and some of the different game environments. The goal to get the game on Kickstarter is still existing, but there isn’t a final timeframe on that. As the last update note said, they want to release a great product and that takes time, and that is in my opinion a great thing considering some of the crappy game releases we’ve seen lately.
The latest trailer for the game can be seen below, and I think I might have to snatch myself this game at the first available opportunity.
