Team17 have announced that they will be partnering with Stormind Games to publish their upcoming action-RPG, Batora: Lost Haven.
The game follows Avril, a reckless girl who survives the devastation of Earth. Having been granted strange new abilities, Avril now must embark on a cosmic journey in an attempt to save her planet. The game’s combat system involves swapping between Avril’s physical and mental powers, and players will need to strike a balance between the two to avoid death.
You can find the latest trailer below.
Batora: Lost Haven will also be holding a closed alpha soon on PC. The alpha will run from July 21st to August 4th. You can learn more and sign up for access on the official site.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
Batora: Lost Haven® combines the features of a hack & slash and a twin-stick shooter in a nonlinear interplanetary story-driven action RPG.
What boundaries would you cross to save your home?
Avril used to be a regular 16-year-old girl, not what you’d call a natural-born hero.
Until a mysterious event devastated the Earth, and she lost everything she cared for.
Now she’s the only one who, with the physical and mental powers that she has been gifted, can attempt to save her planet!
This is how her cosmic journey starts: soon enough, Avril will learn that the line between good and evil is thin. It’s up to her to decide whom to believe: her choices will change the destiny of the universe.
PHYSICAL/MENTAL DUALISM → Find the perfect balance between your body and mind to face the challenges and enigmas you will find along the journey, but keep an eye on the double health bar: it tracks both your physical and mental healths, and if you lose sight of one of them… you’re dead!
DEFENDER OR CONQUEROR? → Choose if you need to use your wits or strength in your interactions with the factions: decide who you want to become while you reach your goal, but be careful of the consequences…
FAST-PACED MULTI-LAYERED COMBAT SYSTEM → Quickly learn when to switch between physical and mental mode: sharpening your strategic dualism is the only way to keep pace with your opponents!
RETRO SCI-FI VISUALS → Fill your eyes with the original hand-painted visuals inspired by the Retro Sci-Fi Art of the 1950s – you will visit colorful and fascinating planets, and meet the most intriguing creatures of the entire universe!
RESPONSIVE NON-LINEAR NARRATION → Your choices will change the fate of the universe and of the creatures that inhabit it. Are you ready to take responsibility for your decisions? Find out all the possible outcomes of the storyline designed by a Writers Guild Award winner!
Batora: Lost Haven launches 2022 for Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
