Archie Paras

ONE MORE LEVEL and Frozen District have revealed today that Warlocks managed to outsell triple-AAA games like Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed Rogue on Steam. Warlocks vs Shadows, is a pixel art action/RPG brawler, that players can experience in single-player story mode or with friends in local or multi co-co or versus.

Rados?aw Ratusznik, One More Level Producer, explained:

“We believe that the new name reflects better what the game really is. You play as one of warlocks, you slay hordes of shadow enemies and you can do it not only in single player but also in a co-op mode. Also there won’t be any better time for this change as the game keeps getting gamers and media attention. So we wanted to use this opportunity and give the game a new name while it’s still in Early Access.”

  • New music for Swamplands added
  • Knockback to Borubar’s club strike added
