In this ambitious action-adventure TPS coming to next-gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series, but also PCyou play a character in search of his origins in a country in the throes of civil war in the form of a semi-open world.
The almost total autarky of this region hides a heavy secret: the recent appearance of supernatural creatures reminiscent of ancient steles and monuments of the region. This phenomenon is called “The Calamity” by the citizens. Equipped with weapons specially forged to fight these monsters, the main character will have to learn to face them and use his equipment wisely.

To see more, you will have to wait, the title is set for the moment at 2023. But a first video already makes it possible to take stock of the visual aspect, under Unreal Engine 5, a kind of techno-SF dystopia with the Master Sword in the hands.
