Nothing but dust in the wind
As part of the Gamescom Opening Night Live presentation, Focus Entertainment released a dramatic cinematic for its upcoming fantasy epic, Atlas Fallen. The new title is currently in development at Deck13, and will launch on PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X in 2023.
The narrative trailer depicts two powerful heroes, seemingly with the strength of gods, as they protect a passing caravan of travelers and merchants from attack by the claws of some terrifying creatures. The action is set against a desolate, ruined desert world, with civilization seemingly confined to what little rubble remains within the arid lands.
The trailer ends with some very short, but visually very impressive gameplay footage, which sees the heroes of the cinematic exploring the world in third-person. It was a very intriguing presentation, and it will be interesting to learn about the events that led to this bizarre clash of apocalypse, monsters, and magnificent superpowers.
According to developer Deck13, players can “target and gather the essence of your enemies to shape your own custom playstyle, forging a new era for humanity in a fully cooperative or solo story campaign.”
Atlas Fallen is currently in development for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X. It will launch in 2023.
