UE4 Game Skara: The Blade Remains Will be Playable at Gamescom 2014

8bit’s forthcoming free-to-play third-person multiplayer online versus title (MOV), Skara: The Blade Remains will be playable at this year’s Gamescom, Creative Director Pablo Rodriguez has confirmed.

We know we have a unique prospect in this title, no other F2P looks as good and with PS4 and Xbox One version on the way too, Skara could change the way we make and play games forever. As one of the first studios to use the Unreal 4 Engine on our unique F2P, we’re really excited to see the response from gamers at Gamescom this year!

The game managed to receive green light from Steam Community in merely 8 days of the campaign launch and also completed a successful Kickstarter campaign. Those of you who are not familiar with the game, here are some key points from the upcoming title:

Being built on Unreal Engine 4, the game features 8 vs. 8 multiplayer with state of the art visual style. Players will be able to choose from a total of five races with unique weapons and distinctive fighting styles. Furthermore, each fighter can be customized in a number of ways to better adapt to a particular player’s playstyle.

An alpha version of Skara: The Blade Remains is available to purchase by signing up at the game’s official website. The small amount paid to get the alpha version will be refunded to players in the form of in-game money. As for the final version, it is scheduled to release sometime in early 2015 on PC.
