Extended Gameplay Video for Quake Engine Horror-Fantasy FPS “Wrath: Aeon of Ruin”

Publishers 1C Entertainment and 3D Realms, and developer KillPixel have released a new block of gameplay for Wrath: Aeon of Ruin.

Featured above, the new 22-minute video for the Quake-engine horror-FPS was shown off at PAX East last week.

Here’s an overview of the game:

You are Outlander. Once adrift upon the Ageless Sea, you now find yourself on the shores of a dying world. From the consuming darkness emerges a figure cloaked in white, the Shepherd of Wayward Souls, who burdens you with the task of hunting down the remaining Guardians of the Old World. You must journey into the vast gloom to explore ancient ruins, discover forgotten secrets and battle the horrors that lurk within.

Fueled by legendary Quake 1 technology, the veins of Wrath pump with the DNA of revered ’90s shooters. Wrath embraces the timeless elements of classic titles such as DoomQuakeDuke Nukem 3DBloodUnreal, and Hexen, and carries them into the 21st century.

Equipped with an arsenal of 9 weapons of exceptional might and an inventory of 10 powerful artifacts, you must traverse ancient crypts, sunken ruins, corrupted temples and howling forests to bring death to your enemies. But do not underestimate your adversaries, for they are great in power and number. Your mind must be as sharp as your blade if you hope to survive the dangers ahead.

The world of Wrath is rich with engaging combat, diverse environments and captivating lore. Every element is deftly intertwined to create an authentic and enchanting experience as timeless as the games that inspired it.
