Supergiant Games Announces a New Roguelike Title for the Epic Games Store

Published

Hades

The development studio behind Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre showed its new game Hades earlier at Thursday’s airing of The Game Awards.

The title is described as a “roguelike dungeon crawler,” and just watching the early-access trailer gives off some serious vibes of Supergiant Games of the past—which is definitely a good thing.

This trailer shows Hades‘ hand-drawn art style, fast-paced, dungeon-crawling action, and the smooth narrating that is known from the studio. The game appears to be a culmination of what made Supergiant’s previous successes so awesome.

Unlike Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre, Hades brings in characters that are not original studio creations. The trailer shows Hades’s son dying in a massive mob of enemies, respawning, and trying again. Zeus also makes an appearance, confirming a theme that revolves around the underworld and Greek gods.

Hades is available right now as a $19.99 early-access title. The title is one of the most alluring games announced for the Epic Games Store.

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ Campaign Will Take Around Six Hours to Complete

ARMA 3

ARMA 3‘s new spin-off expansion will receive a sizable campaign, which is expected to take between four and six hours to complete.

Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, project lead of ‘Contact‘, provided some fresh details regarding the campaign length in an exclusive interview with OnlySP. He confirmed that the campaign will take around four to six hours to complete depending on player ability:

“The length is always hard to specify, because it, of course, depends on each individual player, and how much they explore the terrain beyond the core objectives. We’d estimate normal play sessions lasting between 4 and 6 hours.” He continued, “After that, there’s, of course, a cool box of new toys to tinker with, including the rest of the new Livonia terrain. We also hope community creators get inspired to build their own alien scenarios.”

van ‘t Land also revealed that players will take on the role of a “NATO drone operator” undergoing military training exercises in Livonia. During one of these seemingly routine training exercises, humanity encounters an alien species coming face-to-face with strange technology.

“A big part of the campaign is about uncovering its mystery and exploring what is going on, so we’ll leave most details for players to discover for themselves.” He added, “You will assume the role of a NATO drone operator, deployed to Livonia for military training exercises. Eventually, our alien visitors arrive at the Area of Operations, and from there on out you’re part of an improvised reconnaissance operation to investigate what’s going on.”

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ is set to release on 25 July 2019 for PC. Our full interview with Bohemia Interactive about the expansion will be available in the coming days.
