Posted on September 10, 2020 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop, Videos
Following yesterday’s announcement, THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have shared a proper update on Chronos: Before the Ashes.
As expected, Chronos: Before the Ashes is based on the former VR-exclusive Chronos. The game, which acts as a prequel story of Remnant: From the Ashes, “has been overhauled and optimized to work on all platforms without the need for VR support.”
Here’s an overview of Chronos: Before the Ashes, along with a trailer:
Chronos: Before the Ashes is an atmospheric RPG that chronicles a hero’s lifelong quest to save their homeland from a great evil. Grow wiser, stronger and more powerful as you explore the depths of the mysterious labyrinth. But beware, the labyrinth takes a heavy toll – each time your hero dies, they lose a year of their life!
In Chronos, the 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. 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.
– 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.
Chronos: Before the Ashes launches for Switch on December 1.
