Well, this clears up a couple of questions. We reported that Hellraid was coming last week. On the surface, it’s a slightly peculiar mix. A single-player first person hack-and-slash game that can be played cooperatively and has a kind of arena mode where you’ll play co-op with friends but also compete with them.
I’ll admit that, following the announcement, I was a little unsure of what to expect from Techland’s latest. This teaser trailer looks very promising though. That first-person hack-and-slash doesn’t seem as jarring as it sounded to me originally and the game itself looks pretty nice and very enjoyable with legions of the undead to batter until their heads pop, apparently.
This is due for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
