Publisher PQube and one-man developer Jinsub Jung have announced a new project. Unsouled is a dark and atmospheric action-RPG set in a destructible 3D pixel art world. It’s coming to PC in spring 2020.
Unsouled revolves around the story of two characters, a man and a woman. Both of them possess the ability to absorb the souls of the dead. This power gives them a choice between helping humanity or subjugating them. Naturally, the two don’t make the same choices, so you must forge forward into Unsouled‘s deep and melancholic world in order to bring your rival to justice. You can check out a trailer for Unsouled right here:
Given Unsouled‘s name and general premise, you’d be forgiven for getting strong Dark Souls vibes. In reality, the trailer’s gameplay looks more reminiscent of Hyper Light Drifter or Titan Souls. It’s a top-down action-RPG centered on combat. In a press release, developer Jinsub Jung says the game will be “as challenging as it is rewarding”. Death will send you back to the last statue at which you rested (okay, maybe it’s a little like Dark Souls). Parrying enemy attacks will open up windows which let you chain your slashes onto nearby foes. There will also be a heaping helping of exploration based in majestic ruins and wide-open plains.
Unsouled launches for PC via Steam in spring next year. If you’re lucky enough to be going along to EGX 2019, you can catch a glimpse of the game there. You can also wishlist the game on Steam ahead of its launch. No word yet on whether Unsouled is coming to consoles or on when exactly it’ll be released. Watch this space for more info.
