3DRealms, they of Duke Nukem 3D fame, have announced Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, a new first-person-shooter powered by the 23-years-old Quake 1 engine.
It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition; and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call... The Twilight Zone.
No, we're not knee deep in 1996. 3DRealms just appears to be determined to go as old-school as possible for Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, a fast-paced, retro-inspired fantasy FPS. In Wrath, you are the Outlander, washed ashore in a dead world and tasked with hunting down the Guardians of the Old World, exploring decrepit ruins, discovering secrets, and blowing everything into crimson-soaked giblets.
Wrath: Aeon of Ruin will feature an arsenal of nine weapons (each with multiple fire modes) as well as 10 powerful artifacts and legions of deadly enemies. It’ll be composed of three hub area and 15 sprawling, interconnected levels with all the nifty secrets we used to expect from games.
Multiplayer fans should be in for a treat as well. There’ll be all the usual multiplayer modes powered by QuakeWorld netcode, along with support for four-player co-op in the campaign, either online or over LAN, all capped at 666 FPS, naturally.
Wrath: Aeons of ruin is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch in Summer 2019.
