Hellraid is Techland’s New Hack-and-Slash Game
With Dead Island’s sequel Riptide released, developer Techland can now focus on its new medieval game called Hellraid.
The armies of Hell have invaded our mortal realm and only a few adventurers dare stand in the wake of destruction. You can choose to either go in solo or invite three friends to help you on your quest.
Hellraid is a first-person hack-and-slash title which features the same old melee, ranged and magic attacks formula, as well as the conventional looting system, weapon crafting, weapon and character customizations.
The game’s single-player is a story-driven campaign, while the co-op is a more arcade-like experience.
Idea of Hellraid came to the development team when they created a mod for Dead Island where players could freeze zombies with magic and then shatter them with medieval weapons.
Hellraid has been confirmed for a release later this year for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
