Eager followers of 2D action platformer Death’s Gambit will certainly be pleased by the game’s latest piece of news: a trailer with the anticipated release date of the game of August 14, 2018.

Back in 2016, we got a trailer for the bosses of the game, and everyone would say that there is definitely a Dark Souls-y vibe. Now, the newest trailer for the game showcases a bit of story in addition to a release date, including the super-relatable text of “Destined for Failure”. We also get to see some neat images of the game’s art style, player character, and some enemies to boot. You get a chance to check out some of the stylish pixel-art of the 2D undead journey before being introduced to the release date of the game.

Developers describe the game as:

Death’s Gambit is a challenging Action-RPG where you explore an alien medieval planet filled with beasts, knights, and horrors. As an agent of Death, bound to his service, you must banish your fears and endure the struggle that lies at the heart of Leydia. Master the precise combat, strategically plan out your attacks, and face-off against terrifying creatures that reach to the skies. Use an arsenal of weapons and abilities to explore the unforgiving lands, rich with secrets and twisted characters that may aid or hinder your journey. Find the source of immortality that plagues the land and unravel its eternal ties to the realm.

As we’ve just learned, Death’s Gambit will be releasing on PC and PS4 on August 14, 2018. Look forward to hunting horrible creatures of the lands in the service of Death this fall.
