Raji: An Ancient Epic Channels Classic God of War in New Footage

Published

Raji: An Ancient Epic

A new trailer for Raji: An Ancient Epic has dropped, and it brings to mind one of the most beloved franchises in gaming.

The footage shows off a selection of platforming and combat challenges. While the former seem largely scripted, the latter are intriguing.

Facing off against oversized, imaginatively designed foes, protagonist Raji moves with a speed and flexibility reminiscent of Kratos from the earliest God of War games. The similarities are emphasised by the distant fixed camera perspective.

However, Raji: An Ancient Epic takes place in a mythologised version of Ancient India, following a young girl as she fights against a demon invasion in a quest to save her younger brother.

OnlySP spoke to one of the game’s lead designers, Avichal Singh, back in 2017 to discover more about the project’s background, inspirations, and goals.

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
