The latest issue of Edge magazine reveals a brand new game from the developers of Just Cause, described as an open world fantasy title. It's called AionGuard, and it looks very promising indeed.
AionGuard is being described as a giant battlefield full of thousands-strong armies, dragons that can be piloted, and magical monsters the size of houses. It's been in development for two years already and is currently looking for a publisher. I doubt it will struggle for long in that regard.
The AionGuard of the title are a race of powerful warriors who have merged with symbiotic armor to gain magical power. A bit like Venom then, although the studio prefers to describe them as more a cocktail of "WWI dogfighter pilots, Samurai and medieval knights."
These guys want to recapture the world after their civilization was devastated, and are currently invading realms occupied by the Nazurbaal, who are "harvesting" the land for presumably nefarious ends. Since it's open-world, you can explore the battlefield to disrupt supply lines, befriend local tribes or capture "Geo nodes" to make the enemy strongholds easier to attack.
There's no talk of online yet (boo), but developer Avalanche is promising it will contain things that match the "finest set-pieces videogaming has to offer." A bold claim indeed, but you have to love a studio with ambition.
