New screenshots of Necropolis, the upcoming 4 player co-op rogue-lite title from Harebrained Schemes and Bandai Namco, have been released today. Definitely, a title that I’ve been looking forward to, you can check out my hands-on impressions from the PAX East 2016 build here. Necropolis will be demoed at E3 2016 at the Bandai Namco America meeting room 303 A&B, in the South Hall Mezzanine Level.
Necropolis blends timing-based third-person action with procedurally generated environments, monsters, and treasure. Those elements, married with the game’s striking minimalist art style, sardonic tone, and permadeath gameplay combine for an addictive and original “just one more time” experience. In NECROPOLIS, players assume the role of a nameless adventurer attempting to escape a living, magical dungeon that reconstructs itself on each playthrough. Craft, equip, explore, and fight to stay alive against all manner of fearsome threats in the twisting labyrinth and endless chasms of this diabolical death dungeon.
Luckily, players don’t need to take on Necropolis alone. Players can bring up to 3 friends along for intense co-op play but be warned: your weapons and magic affect everyone, friend or foe! And although death is still assured, every playthrough will improve your combat skills, magical upgrades, and good old dungeon know-how as they inch closer and closer to the final exit.
Necropolis will be released this Summer for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
