Chronos: Before the Ashes is a new action-RPG from Gunfire Games (Darksiders III, Remnant: From the Ashes), a non-VR version of its 2016 game that was critically well received. It's out this December, but THQ Nordic has put together what is quite possibly the worst videogame trailer in years for its announcement.
In that the whole 80s-vibe doesn't suit the game's art-style in the slightest, and the overall direction is less Stranger Things than it is a very poor cringe-fest of generic synthwave, faux 80s fashion, and bedroom gaming as imagined by a marketing team with no knowledge of videogames.
And then, well, there's the whole 'dinner's ready' tag. Yikes.
As for Chronos: Before the Ashes, here's a description and few screenshots.
Chronos: Before the Ashes is the next release from Gunfire Games, a THQ Nordic Studio and developer of Darksiders III and Remnant: From the Ashes. In Chronos, the prequel story of Remnant: From the Ashes, the player takes the role of a young hero, trying to save his home from an ancient evil. To do this, a chosen one is sent to a mysterious labyrinth, full of both fearsome and mystic creatures, along with challenging puzzles. Combat is unforgiving and brutal - but in Chronos, death is not the end. Each time the hero fails, he is cast out and must wait one year to return to the labyrinth - you can try again, but one year older. When you start your journey, it's still easy to get stronger and quicker, but the older you get, the more important your wisdom about the arcane powers will become.
Chronos: Before the Ashes is out December 1, 2020 on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
