THQ Nordic announced today that they have a number of game reveals planned for Gamescom next month, and two of them are brand new IP's. The first one sounds incredibly fun, as if it was something straight out of some 1980's B-movie reel. The other is a horror game, and neither has much details on it.
The first one is, as THQ puts it, a "post-apocalyptic, open world Kung-Fu fable RPG". Now, exactly what that means is anyone's guess, but you have to admit that it sounds awesome. Other games that will be shown off include Spellforce 3, Aquanox and Battle Chasers: Nightwar.
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. 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, advanced gameplay and a brand-new UI, but we will also have a surprise announcement to make.
The Kung-Fu game sounds interesting to say the least. A fable usually involves anthropomorphic animals, but we have not other information on these games. We will have to wait until Gamescom to hear more information, but all of the games will be available on Xbox One. All of the games will be fully playable during the show, so if you happen to be in Cologne, Germany next month, you can stop by and check them out.
