Developer Techland, the studio responsible for Dead Island, recently announced their newest game: Hellraid, a first-person mix of RPG and Hack n’ Slash elements. Just the other day, they released a few new screenshots for the game. The pictures showcase the game’s first person combat, even going as far as to show that players will, in some way, have the ability to decapitate their foes.

In Hellraid, players will have fairly traditional class-choices of warrior, mage, paladin, and rogue, with the chance to upgrade abilities via skill trees. The game also gives players the option to play cooperatively, either locally or over the internet. Hellraid is planned to release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year.

Our Verdict

Barry Herbers
I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
