Developer Gunfire Games, a THQ Nordic Studio recently revealed Chronos: Before the Ashes, a prequel story of Remnant: From the Ashes, the player takes the role of a young hero, trying to save his home from an ancient evil. The game is slated for release on December 1,2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Stadia.
To do this, a chosen one is sent to a mysterious labyrinth, full of both fearsome and mystic creatures, along with challenging puzzles. Combat is unforgiving and brutal – but in Chronos, death is not the end. Each time the hero fails, he is cast out and must wait one year to return to the labyrinth – you can try again, but one year older. When you start your journey, it’s still easy to get stronger and quicker, but the older you get, the more important your wisdom about the arcane powers will become.
Hero features as presented on the official website:
- Adventure RPG – Refreshing combination of Adventure Game elements and RPG mechanics.
- Deep Combat – A variety of weapons, abilities, and powers are available to the player in the pursuit of their quest.
- Unique Aging Mechanic – Every time the player dies they age one year. Players must adapt to their advancing age as they progress throughout the game. You will begin your adventure young, nimble, and quick, and end your time in the game-wise and more attuned to magic.
