First chapter of retro-FPS CULTIC releases in October


3D Realms have announced the release date of the first chapter of CULTIC, an upcoming retro-inspired FPS with horror elements.

CULTIC releases on October 13th for Windows PC via Steam. You can find a free demo on the game’s Steam page.

In CULTIC, you play as an investigator that has been left for dead in a mass grave. Get your revenge against a deranged cult and their ghastly minions, all while uncovering their true goal, by blowing them to pieces with whatever guns you can find.

CULTIC‘s old school approach to game design promises players a lot of freedom to sneak around its levels and deal with cultists as they see fit. Use guns, explosives, improvised weapons, and hazards in the environment to fend off the cultists and the nightmarish creatures they are summoning.

You can find the release date trailer below.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

Rise up. Fight back.

Gear up to fight your way through the ranks of an insidious cult. Their wretched minds twisted by the will of an unseen entity, you’ll find just as much lead flying back as you dish out, so you’ll have to run, slide, dodge, and make use of your environment to survive in this old-school-inspired shooter.

Fight…Your Way

CULTIC gives you the freedom to approach combat your way. You can run in guns blazing, running, jumping, sliding, and dodging to keep out of harms way. If you prefer a slower approach, you can lay traps, let your enemies come to you, and pick them off from the safety of cover. Maybe you prefer to weave in between your foes, leading their attacks towards each other, and turning them against one another. With a full arsenal of mid-century firearms and explosives, you’ll be well equipped to slaughter everything in your path – provided you don’t get slaughtered first.

Brutal Combat 

Combat in CULTIC is fast and deadly. Well-placed shots can take your enemies – and yourself – out of the game quickly. Keep on the move or stick to cover, and use your arsenal wisely to stay alive as you fight your way through cult territory.

Old-School Style

CULTIC was styled to feel like a throwback to the shooters of yore, but with the advantages of a modern engine, such as physics, lighting, and a fully 3D game world. The gameplay, audio design, and art are all stylized to create a unique experience.
