THQ Nordic and co-developer Gunfire Games have announced action RPG Chronos: Before the Ashes, along with a release date.
Based on the 2016 VR game Chronos (developed by Gunfire Games), the game has been remade for Windows PC and consoles without needing VR. The game is a prequel to the events of Remnant: From the Ashes.
Players must venture into a labyrinth full of monsters and puzzles to save their home. However, when they fail their character must wait one year. As such, your early journeys will see you getting stronger and faster, but as you age you will have to rely on knowledge and magic.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
