THQ Nordic To Announce 2 Titles at Gamescom, An Open World RPG and An Horror Themed Game
THQ Nordic just announced their Gamescom 2017 line-up, which includes two brand new games, teased with the following sentences.
The first new announcement is a brand new original IP. This open world RPG is set in a unique universe and will be a post-apocalyptic kung-fu fable.
The second new announcement is a new installment of a well-known, mysterious and horrific IP.
The first game is a new IP, but it somehow reminds me of the TV show Into the Badlands, set in a post-apocalyptic world where martial arts are seemingly practiced by everyone.
The second game should be from THQ Nordic’s ample portfolio of intellectual properties. Frankly, their most well known “horrific” IP is probably Painkiller; the latest entry ‘Hell & Damnation’ was developed by The Farm 51 and launched in 2013 to a mixed reception.
Of course, THQ Nordic will also showcase plenty of games that were already announced and are nearing their release windows. Gamescom begins in Cologne, Germany, on August 22nd.
Journalists and players alike can look forward to playing a near-to-final version of ELEX, the open world RPG from Piranha Bytes. Coming to PlayStation™4, Xbox One and PC on October 17th.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar was nominated for the “Best RPG of E3” award and is shaping up nicely for its multi-platform release on October 3rd. For the first time, you can get your hands on the game on the Nintendo Switch.
The multiplayer beta of SpellForce 3 is now running and has already seen thousands of players contributing providing valuable feedback to the development process. At gamescom, the focus will be on SpellForce 3’s deep single-player campaign.
First-person underwater shooter Aquanox: Deep Descent will show its campaign for the first time to journalists and players alike.
For The Guild 3 you cannot only expect to see an improved version and advanced gameplay, but we will also have a surprise announcement to make.
The recently announced cooperation with Bugbear Entertainment for Wreckfest allows the game to make a pit stop at gamescom where it will show off a raft of new content for upcoming updates.
