Techland is like the Uwe Boll of game developers so who cares.

No. Not even close.

Reminds me of Hexen!

Hot damn, I want this. Loved both Dead Island games.

Well, here's hoping this is Good Techland™. The melee combat was far and away the best part of Dead Island, and this looks like something I'd be very much interested in if it's not a steaming pile.

"Thank you for applying for Techland. Now, your credentials look good. Let me just flip a coin, and... oooh, looks like you got Bad Techland(tm). So, uh, welcome aboard? No? Okay, then."

What a perfectly silly name for a video game. Wish you saw more like it nowadays.

Always feels like that sort of gamble with Techland. I honestly though Dead Island was an okay game, so maybe this'll be good, too. Wait for a sale to see for myself.

Weird that they ditched last gen and went straight to PS4 and Xbox One, but I'm all for it, I need a coop game for my PS4.

Also weird that itll be early access for PC

I'm probably not the only one who's reminded of killing thousands upon thousands of draugr in Skyrim... This looks as interesting as that (which is to say, not at all).

Piss off.

Looks kinda like a Painkiller 2.0

Is there going to be a manual combat mode in this? I loved it in Dead Island.

Edited by Sammo21

Sounds like it came from a name generator...

Also, looks like it should be a $30 game...not a full priced $50-60 game, so I hope they price this correctly.

so is there anything but skeletons

All I hear is Dead Island this and that when you refer to Good Techland but Gunslinger is where it's at yo!

Incredibly polished game and probably has the most satisfying gunplay I've had the pleasure of experiencing for quite some time. Story was decent too!

Skyrim, Hexen and Witchhaven says hello.

Man, Witchhaven, I've always wanted to find a copy of that, but it wasn't available anywhere :(

Hexen is one of my all time favorite games though.

Let's hope it has Oculus support ;D

Looks cute.

Edited by graf1k

It's got promise. Luckily for them, it's nearly impossible for the combat to suck worse than TES. I liked Dead Island quite a bit and thought Riptide was....fine.

Posted by NeoZeon

I'm digging it; has a certain Skyrim/Norse vibe to it. Hopefully it runs better than Skyrim though; man what a saga that was.

I'll keep an eye out for this, but to be honest I really dislike games that try and let the player just have everything. When I play as a warrior (primarily pure melee) I don't want to see a goddamned mana bar telling me how much magic juice I have left.

One of the main reasons I really liked Dragon's Dogma.

That's some passive enemy AI.

Posted by billyok

Quite possibly the most patient skeletons I've ever seen.

Call of Jaurez: Gunslinger was fucking awesome and the original Dead Island was pretty good too, thats two things better than what Uwe Boll has ever done.

Posted by civid

Am I the only one reminded by that amazing Might and Magic game Dark Messiah? Because if this is anything like that it will be great

Posted by onarum

If it has something like the analog dead island's combat system count me right the fuck in.
