Action RPG Dark Devotion Coming to PS4, Xbox One & PC Later this Year
Publisher The Arcade Crew has teamed up with developer Hibernian Workshop to bring the spectacularly ethereal Action-RPG hybrid Dark Devotion to PC and consoles later this year.
Check out the announcement trailer of Dark Devotion, featuring some gameplay footage:
“The eternal suffering of The Templars is both a blessing and a curse – salvation is born through sacrifice, and no sacrifice is too great to praise your God. A mystical temple teeming with a strange life-like energy of its own awaits you on your sacred crusade of suffering and redemption that will take you to the depths of traditions spanning centuries – and leave you questioning your faith and your own existence.
Dark Devotion features a rich, detailed and immersive narrative that unfolds a sombre tale of your religion’s undeniable calling where every encounter is a challenge of suffering, piety and conviction – but most importantly, it’s a fight to the death.
Spanning across four unique worlds, each with their own variety of environments bursting with detail, players will choose from dozens of weapons and learn from them the secret of the Temple as they fight superbly crafted bosses with one mission: to destroy your soul and damn you forever.
Dark Devotion features several distinctive gameplay mechanics for greatly expanded replayability – the prayers, blessings and curses system allows for flexibility and a variety of approaches to each foe, while its myriad of weaponry allow for combining skillsets to alter your approach with each play through.
About the game
A strong RPG influence
You will have the chance to loot a lot of different weapons, armours and relics, which have their own qualities so that you have the chance to create your own build… for better and for worse…
Each weapon has its own specificities and statistics which you will also be able to custom with mystical runes. Roughly speaking : you have the choice to adapt your arsenal depending the enemy you’re facing and/or your preferences. Choose wisely.
Pray for your safety
Kill enemies to collect some Faith. Indeed, Faith is necessary to many things such as : unlocking secret paths, special chests, and more… So use it sparingly.
The general amount of Faith you gather during a run is saved, and will be usable in the Filthblood Shelter (the HUB) to upgrade your unlucky character.
Items for your salvation
Of course you will be able to heal your wounds or illnesses by consuming the right item. If you have the chance to loot the right one! A lot of other consumables are scattered in the Temple, spend them carefully to survive.
The Temple can be a place of virtue for those who deserve it
If your prowesses are witnessed your God might want to give a hand, who knows? But it can also be a place of despair and sickness if you’re not paying attention to what’s surrounding you so be vigilant and cautious, the Temple will not think twice about crushing you.
Dark Devotion is set to launch later this year.”
