Counterplay, the individuals who introduced you Duelyst, have dropped some fairly massive and express clues about their subsequent mission in a job commercial. It appears to be like prefer it’ll be a hardcore motion recreation within the mould of Dark Souls, shall be developed in Unreal, and is confirmed for PC.

Scan the nearer horizon with a have a look at our listing of upcoming PC games.

The job will contain animating “both human and non-humanoid 3D characters” for a “PC and console triple-A videogame developed in Unreal Engine 4.”

It could appear an enormous leap to go from a free-to-play card/technique recreation to a premium 3D motion recreation, however Counterplay have the pedigree.
