Deck 13, the co-developer of Lords of the Fallen started to announce the next game it will be working on. Well, it least teased it. Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive announced a partnership, and they are working on a game which they call a “premium action RPG IP set in a dystopian sci-fi future.” They don’t have a name yet, saying it will be ‘revealed by name at a later date.”
There isn’t much about this game right now, but they did say that it will have “innovative combat mechanics” as well as an “original character progression system.” They also said it will have “tight, visceral combat.” There has only one image released of this game, which doesn’t give us much to go off, as it’s dark and shows only a single character but it’s enough to build some excitement. I’ve included the image at the end of this post.
“We are ecstatic to announce this new partnership with one of the very best independent European development studios. We’ve been excited by Deck 13/s new project since our first exchange with them, and as we’ve just got through the pre-production phase we’re fully convinced by their capacities to deliver one of the most exciting RPGs to come in the future.” said Cedric Lagarrigue Focus Home’s managing partner.
This new game, which will be representing a new IP, is said to be announced “at a later date.” This game is scheduled to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as PC in 2017.
E3 is right around the corner, maybe more news will be then. I sure hope so, as I not only love basically anything RPG, dystopian settings are one of my favorites, and I also really adore the sci-fi genre. I’m also excited it will be for Xbox One as well PS4, as I mainly play consoles. So this game is looking good in my eyes, and I can’t wait to learn more about it as time goes on.
