Dolmen, an upcoming Sci-Fi action RPG that we previewed a few months ago, finally has a release date. Thanks to Prime Matter and Massive Work Studio, we now know that Dolmen will be released on May 20, 2022.
Set in a sci-fi universe where humanity has colonized several star systems using space travel, technology, and genetic manipulation to adapt to the conditions, Dolmen has players battling across a distant planet – Revion Prime – trying to unravel a mystery of alien species, corrupt corporations, and unknown dimensions.
Behind everything appears to be an alien species called Vahani that roams the universe-altering the genetic makeup of other species. However, it remains to be seen if their motives are noble or more malevolent. It’s suspected that a crystal called Dolmen is the key to their work, and planet Revion Prime has an abundance of it that you’ll need to collect in order to unravel a web of secrets.
We enjoyed the combat and crafting systems during our preview of Dolmen and felt that the game had vibes of both Dark Souls and Dead Space. We felt that the movement was too clunky for its own good, and the UI needed some work. Dolmen has potential, and here’s hoping that the game has been tweaked since we last checked out the game.
Dolmen releases on May 20, 2022, for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
