If you ever bought into the potential of A44 Games after its stellar Souls-lite, Ashen, then the New Zealand-based studios' next effort, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn, is poised to reward your faith, if the new title's announcement trailer is anything to go by.
And while it is obviously a heavily directed affair, selling the game's style and tone more than anything gameplay specific, what we're watching in the video above is still captured in-engine, so we'll go in with at least an understanding of the visual sheen we can expect.
The door to the Afterlife has been opened, allowing the old god’s army of the undead to escape from within. Join Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, and her mystical companion Enki, a strange creature gifted with magical powers, as they pursue their personal vendetta against the gods.
With an open world to explore, leave your mark on a vast battlefield as you travel through desert sands, cavernous ruins and towering cities filled with secrets and lead mankind’s final siege against the tide of the dead. Players must embrace their creativity and master a rewarding combat system by blending axe wielding, gunplay, magic and more to unleash powerful combos and prevail over the most powerful beings in creation.
Surprisingly in a sea of new game announcements for 2023, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is slated for 2022 and will release on all major platforms barring Nintendo Switch.
Stay tuned for more on this intriguing game from across the pond.
