Techland, coming off the release of their latest game Dead Island: Riptide, have announced their latest project: Hellraid. Keeping with the Dead Island style, Hellraid will be a first-person cooperative slasher. Unlike Dead Island, however, Hellraid will be broken into two distinct experiences -- a single player campaign that's story driven, and a cooperative multiplayer mode where you and three friends battle for loot and challenge.
Pick from a currently revealed roster of four classes, the sword and axe wielding Warrior, heal and protect the team with a paladin, master the elements with the Mage, or shoot from afar with the Rogue. Hellraid's multiplayer will feature system-generated content for cooperative play, claiming each play-through is an all new experience with plenty of loot and fame for all.
Hellraid will be coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year, which means this is a project Techland must have been working on for some time. The game's built on the studio's proprietary Chrome Engine 5, on which Call of Juarez: The Cartel and the Dead Island games have been built on. It's hard to argue with first-person hack and slash gameplay with RPG levels of customization, crafting and character development.
Bring Hellraid on, Techland. I like the sound of this. Just maybe try and get your game out before the next-gen console launch, ok?
