You’ve likely heard of many books that paved the way for some of your favorite video games throughout the years. Praedor is a Finnish Sword and Sorcery franchise that all started with a graphic novel in 1986. Since its release, the beloved series has gained a set of additional novels, various short stories, and even a tabletop RPG. Now, adding to the list is the new action-RPG title Broken, which takes place in the same universe as the famed series.
Unfortunately, there’s not much to see in the teaser trailer released by the team. However, we do know that Broken will take place in the dark fantasy world of Jaconia, the derelict remains of an ancient civilization long since passed. Players will assume the role of treasure hunters, otherwise known as Praetors, as they venture into the apocalyptic ruins of the former age.
One of the reveals at The Game Awards was a new game from the creators of ARK: Survival Evolved, Studio Wildcard. Developed by their sister studio, Grapeshot Games, Atlas is a massively multiplayer pirate game reminiscent of one of this year’s divisive big releases.
The game promises ship and fort building, crew hiring, settlement plundering, creature slaying, treasure hunting and wave riding. You’ll be able to go from a tatty aspiring upstart to a ruling pirate lord as part up to 40,000 other players all online simultaneously in the 45,000 square kilometre world.
Releasing on Steam Early Access next week, Atlas will be setting sail on Xbox One in 2019 as part of Game Preview.
Canadian studio Phoenix Labs has revealed that their free-to-play action RPG Dauntless — released on PC back in April this year — will soon be making its way to consoles. To celebrate the announcement, they made a trailer that debuted at The Game Awards show last night. Check it out below, particularly all you Monster Hunter fans out there.
As part of what they are calling the “One Dauntless” vision, Phoenix Labs will be looking to provide players with seamless cross-platform play, progression and account management. This means that no matter where a player is, whether sitting at their PC, on the couch with a console, or eventually even on the go with mobile devices or the Nintendo Switch, they’ll be able to continue where they left off and play with friends no matter where they play.
