Killpixel Games’ upcoming update to the shooter- Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment, is built on a modified version of the Quake engine. It marks the first time that the engine is being used in a game in almost twenty years.
Here’s everything we know about Wrath: Aeon of Ruin:
Wrath was originally intended to release into Early Access with the first episode in “Summer 2019”, with a full-price purchase. The release was eventually pushed back into November 2019 featuring two of the five levels in Episode 1 and a roadmap for the completion of the first episode leading up to the full release. In the second Early Access content update on March 28, 2020, the release roadmap was updated to push the expected final release into early 2021.
The game follows The Outlander, an enigma adrift upon the Ageless Sea. He ends up on the shores of a dying world where he is approached by the Shepherd of Wayward Souls, who tasks the Outlander with hunting down the Guardians of the Old World, who were once angelic protectors but have now fallen into corruption and are responsible for the destruction of this world.
The game follows in the tradition of 1990s first-person shooters like Doom, Blood, Hexen, and Quake but also adds light RPG elements. Players can collect items and skills to upgrade the Outlander’s abilities, which aid in exploration as well as combat.
The game, rather than using a linear progression system, consists of three hub-worlds, each with its own central theme. From the hubs, players can access five levels (15 in total), each with a unique design based on the central hub theme. The developers describe an “Open level design philosophy, where each level has multiple paths with all loop back into the main path to make each level feel more expansive.”
Save points in the game come in the form of a consumable item called Soul Tethers. These Soul Tethers must be found by the player and then used at a particular point in the game with great discretion. There are also occasional shrine placements within levels that act as checkpoint saves.
There are nine weapons, ranging from a wrist-mounted blade to high-powered projectile weapons, each with alternate firing modes. In addition to this, players can acquire artifacts, which deliver defensive or offensive boosts.
At launch, Wrath: Aeon of Ruin will feature basic deathmatch multiplayer modes. 3D Realms has stated that additional multiplayer modes are planned post-launch, as well as a 4-player co-op campaign.
Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is available on PC, macOS, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
