Posted on September 22, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Stingbot Games today announced that Soul Survivors, a dark fantasy time-survival roguelite, is in the works for Switch. The title is initially launching in Q1 2023 on PC via Steam Early Access, and it’ll be out on Nintendo’s console after.
We have more information in the following overview:
Suit up and head into combat against waves of enemies threatening to overrun unprepared champions in the Lands of Chaos. Weave in and out of progressively more challenging foes, auto-attacking to cut a path forward and absorbing souls from felled creatures to level up and acquire powerful new abilities. Cast down legions of shambling zombies, corrupt mages, and giants in tense showdowns across richly detailed pixel-art stages.
Select one of two character classes available at Early Access launch, with 6 planned for v1.0. Charge into enemy hordes as the powerful Bogatyr, or use the realm’s undead legions as the Necromancer. In Soul Survivors, each character class features distinct active and passive abilities to provide for wildly differing playstyles. Spend hard-earned gold accrued during sessions to unlock persistent Talent Tree upgrades for different characters, boosting stats affording even more firepower in subsequent sessions.
Alter a character’s auto-attack in dynamic ways by spending experience-granting souls. Transform Bogatyr’s standard sword into an AOE-inducing hammer with the Iron Smash ability or upgrade to the Butcher’s Blade to deliver powerful overhead strikes capable of cleaving through waves of deadly foes. Experiment with different character builds across numerous runs to create the perfect champion capable of outlasting thousands of enemies and challenging malicious bosses at the end of each stage, like the hulking Flesh Golem.
“We are excited to share the first look at Soul Survivors with the world, and are even more thrilled to invite players to go hands-on with the game during the October Steam Next Fest,” said Stingbot Games designer Sterling Selover. “Soul Survivors is all about risk versus reward as you try to topple thousands of increasingly more difficult enemies and build up your character. We’re also building, and look forward to sharing even more content when Soul Survivors comes to Early Access in early 2023!”
A trailer for the project can be seen below.
