More Details Revealed for R.A.W. in Brand New Video
Not much is known about the Xbox LIVE Arcade/PlayStation Network title R.A.W. (Realms of Ancient War) being developed by Wizarbox and published by Focus Home Interactive. All we know for sure is that it’s a 3rd person isometric hack and slash game, seemingly in a similar style to other popular dungeon crawler games.
I little bit more information has been released today in the form of a brand new gameplay trailer. R.A.W. seems to have a nice visualaesthetic that looks very similar to Trine. Whatever the game turns out to play like, it certainly looks interesting.
Enough of me talking though, you want to see the video right? Here you go…
The four Kingdoms of Men, Elves and Dwarves lay in ruins, preyed on by raiders and looters. In this chaos, a new, unknown threat is looming… To discover its true nature, the kingdoms sent detachments to investigate, a dangerous mission from which no one returned. But what about you? You, who were in the wrong place at the wrong time…
Take control of a powerful Warrior, a dark Sorcerer or a Rogue master of stealth, and plunge into a grand quest full of action! The world of R.A.W. leads you, alone or in 2-player co-op, through many levels as rich as varied in every corner of the continent.
Along your quest, the experience gained through the violent battles you will fight and the weapons and magic items you will loot on the lifeless bodies of your opponents will allow you to develop the power of your chosen character. You will learn new powers and spells ever more devastating, some of which, when mastered, will allow you to inflict tremendous damage and eradicate several dozens of enemies at once… as they will often rally in hordes to fight you!
All the power you will be granted will not be too much to exterminate your outnumbering enemies. Thanks to your gift of incarnation, you will even be able to take direct control of the body of your most powerful foes, seeding discord and destruction right at the heart of enemy armies!
Invite a friend to join your adventure in an exciting co-op mode, where coordination and teamwork are essential ingredients of victory!
