Techland’s Hellraid moves to new engine – Steam Early Access in autumn

Techland’s Hellraid moves to new engine – Steam Early Access in autumnHellraid

Techland has been busy with their co-op slasher and revealed it’s now going to be even better.

The game will now see some new additions and improvements as Techland  move the game to Chrome Engine 6. This engine is the same one that’s being used in their zombie title Dying Light.

The game will come with three game modes, the Story Mode, a Mission Mode which they say will “put more focus on arcade-style fun of climbing up leaderboards”, and finally Arena Mode which offers survival gameplay by fending off hordes of enemy. These will all be available in 2-4 player co-op so it should be a blast.

Combat has apparently also been improved and now features one- and two-handed melee weapons, shields, magic staves and ranged weapons, Magic now also comes with offensive, defensive and healing spells.

Just for good measure there’s also weapon crafting, interactive environments, destructible objects and environmental traps, as well as adaptive enemy AI.

The information also comes with news that the game will head to Steam Early Access this autumn so watch out for more news on that later this year. This does look really tasty and as a fan of the Hexen series I hope that the co-op experience is just as engrossing as Hexen was all those years ago.

Now on with some new screens and a trailer.
