On day one of PAX East 2018, 1C Company showed off a raft of new titles, including three brand new games that were being displayed for the very first time. A showcase trailer showed this impressive variety of games, so have a good ol’ look at it:
The three new games are:
Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark, a turn-based tactical JRPG with just a hint of Steampunk in its fantasy stylings. Players will control Arbiter Kyrie, an agent of the ominously-titled Immortal Council, tasked with preserving order throughout the land. As you can see above, it certainly has the look of classic strategy RPGs but with the character portraits of a Bioware D&D game. It comes to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in Q2 2019.
Eternity: The Last Unicorn, an RPG based on Norse mythology. All elven unicorns have been taken away and cursed, endangering the very existence of elves. It’s up to you, as pure elf Aurehen, to find and free the last surviving unicorn and save your people. I love the design of this one, and it will be on my radar when it releases on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in Q3 2018.
Gift of Parthax is the last of the three new titles and is a 2D, top-down arena fighter. Featuring what is described as a “Gothic pixel art style”, you will play as a mage named Arif, who must survive the challenges of Atixa’s grand arena by fighting five seasons of enemy waves. Gift of Parthax will release on PC and Xbox One in Q3 2018.
Among the other previously-announced titles shown, were the Cyberpunk RTS Re-Legion (PC, Q3 2018), squad-based RTS Ancestor’s Legacy (PC, Xbox One, May 22nd 2018), turn-based space exploration adventure Deep Sky Derelicts (PC Early Access, 2018) and Haimrik (PC, Xbox One, PS4, June 6th 2018), a turn-based puzzle-adventure that sees our hero Haimrik using words that come to life, in order to fight warriors, sorcerers and dragons.
All of these titles are currently being shown at PAX East 2018, with most of them releasing by the end of the year.
