Destroy The Old Gods
One game I clearly remember demoing last time there was an E3 was Eldest Souls. I was drawn like a moth to flame by the visceral pixel art. And then I got my butt handed to me repeatedly by the demo’s boss. And yet, instead of getting dispirited, I found myself curious to know more about Eldest Souls. Well, today United Label and Fallen Flag Studio have key info to share.
Eldest Souls is a hardcore Souls inspired game. And it’s coming to PC, Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S on July 29th. And though I knew most of those details before, the new story trailer is pretty epic. But before we get to that, here’s a refresher course on the game:
Eldest Souls focuses on only the toughest and most engaging of combat encounters – the Bosses – with each Old God presenting a new and unique challenge. Fitting rewards await those who triumph in the form of new powers and abilities, which can be combined in numerous ways to result in a multitude of diverse builds. But as players explore the labyrinthine passages of the Citadel, they’ll also encounter intriguing NPCs, compelling questlines, and a series of dark and ominous mysteries. Slowly uncover the truth behind the Old Gods and their agelong imprisonment…
The brand new, fully animated trailer tells the epic story of the world, from the humble beginnings of man, to their enslavement by the Old Gods, and finally, to mankind’s eventual uprising. Ending on a note of futility, the title’s nameless protagonist overlooks the colossal Citadel, wherein lies a nigh-impossible task – overthrow the Old Gods once and for all.
Eldest Souls features:
- Battle your way through a series of uniquely challenging Boss-Rush combat encounters
- Discover a cast of intriguing NPCs and questlines as you explore the ancient Citadel
- Unearth the mystery of the Old Gods, before total devastation befalls the World
