OtherSide Entertainment has sent out a word that action RPG Underworld Ascendant will plunge you right into the Abyss on Thursday, November 15, via Steam for PC. Besides the release date, the developers have also unveiled that the console versions for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch are currently being developed and planned for release next year.
To celebrate the announcements, OtherSide Entertainment and 505 Games have released a new trailer that you can find below:
In Underworld Ascendant, players assume the role of ‘The Ascendant,’ summoned to the Stygian Abyss by a mysterious figure – Cabirus. There, they learn that Typhon, a threat to both their worlds, can only be stopped by the player. To defeat Typhon, players must uncover secrets of what happened to the inhabitants of the Abyss, gain favor with their descendants and share their knowledge and strength with them to defeat Typhon.
In a throwback to game industry veterans’ Paul Neurath and Warren Spector’s celebrated past, Underworld Ascendant boasts a gameplay experience that encourages different playstyles and rewards experimentation in a dungeon environment that reacts dynamically to player choices. Players can choose from a variety of items, skills and abilities that allow them to experience the game in many different ways. They must think creatively to devise unique solutions to overcome the challenges they face in the Abyss, with each decision holding great opportunity and grave consequence.
