THQ has announced Chronos: Before the Ashes, which by all accounts should be Gunfire Games’ atmospheric RPG originally released in 2016. Although it was designed for VR, this version will presumably ditch that feature.
Here’s an overview of Chronos, along with a teaser trailer for the new “Before the Ashes” version:
Chronos is an atmospheric RPG that chronicles one young hero’s lifelong quest to save their homeland from a great evil. Central to this quest is an ancient labyrinth, which holds the secrets necessary to restore life and peace to their home. However, the architects of this labyrinth designed it to open only once a year. The labyrinth is a test, and each time the hero fails they are cast out and must wait one year to return.
