First-Person Action-RPG Raidborn Entering Early Access Late 2021


Phodex Games have announced that their first-person action-RPG, Raidborn, will enter Early Access in late 2021.

Raidborn is an action-RPG focused primarily on exploration and dungeon crawling. You play as a member of the royal guard that has been dishonorably discharged after the gruesome murder of the king. Now, you must travel across the land of Runia to clear your name, and stop a demon lord that is using magical crystals to control monsters.

The game’s combat system is tied into its ragdoll physics engine, which can be exploited with a kick attack to knock back enemies or throw them into hazards. You can also craft your own playstyle by mixing and matching skills based on four subclasses. You can find a new pair of trailers for the game below.
