Yesterday, developer Thunder Lotus Games — the team that put out Jotun in 2015 — released nearly 18 minutes of new gameplay footage of its hand-drawn metroidvania game, Sundered, which is poised to release sometime next month (July) on PS4 and PC.
The new footage is specifically captured on a PS4 during E3 2017, and features William Dubé of Thunder Lotus Games providing commentary and information about the game (which is being showcased in its current beta form).
The new footage shows off the first region of the game, which is home to the Valkyrie, who are a group of people apparently very driven by things like science and army strength. It also — as the tittle suggests — unveils one of the game’s bosses for the first time, via an epic boss fight featuring dimension-defying fists.
For those that don’t know: Sundered is a “horrifying fight for survival and sanity.” In it you play as Eshe, a wanderer in a ruined world and who is trapped in ever-changing caverns full of eldritch horrors. Through your journey you will harness the power of corrupted relics and defeat gigantic bosses.
The game notably boasts beautiful hand-drawn art, dynamic encounters against hordes of enemies, multiple skills and abilities to learn, a mix between hand-crafted and procedural levels, multiple endings, and much more.
It’s currently unclear how much Sundered will cost when it launches. If you want, you can read about the game’s very successful Kickstarter here and learn more about its protagonist here. Or you can do none of that and just check out the new gameplay footage below:
