Posted on March 5, 2014, Mike Sharkey Zeno Clash Developers Reveal New Game, Abyss Odyssey
With a teaser website and social media channels, ACE Team revealed Abyss Odyssey without sharing any specifics. Based on a couple screenshots found on the official forum, we know its a platformer, and a pretty one at that. Beyond that, though, ACE Team says we’ll have to wait for the official trailer, which is set for launch today. For now, here are those screenshots:
We’ll update this post with the trailer and any additional details once ACE is ready to share.
UPDATE: Here’s that trailer as well as the first details on Abyss Odyssey.
ACE Team says the co-op platformer will feature procedurally generated environments created with “hundreds” of different building blocks. It provide a rougelike challenge thanks to a deep fighting system and the “complex AI” of monsters. As an example, ACE Team said every enemy, including basic skeleton warriors, will have a full set of unique attacks and abilities.
The other big feature is the ability for player to capture the soul of every defeated enemy and then become that creature at any time. Looks fun. See for yourself below:
