THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have announced Chronos: Before The Ashes, a prequel to Remnant: From The Ashes. The main heroes’s journey takes him into a labyrinth filled with monsters to fight to save his home, but there is a twist. Everytime a player dies they age by one year so the more the character is killed the harder the game may get as they get older, meaning they could lose skill or find it more challenging to fight. The announcement trailer is a little odd though, with some gameplay shown. Have a watch and you might get the trailer, but we didn’t.
Here are the main features for Chronos: Before The Ashes:
- Adventure RPG – Refreshing combination of Adventure Game elements and RPG mechanics.
- Deep Combat – A variety of weapons, abilities, and powers are available to the player in the pursuit of their quest.
- Unique Aging Mechanic – Every time the player dies they age one year. Players must adapt to their advancing age as they progress throughout the game. You will begin your adventure young, nimble, and quick, and end your time in the game wise and more attuned to magic.
Remnant: From The Ashes was recently given away on the Epic Games Store. Chronos: Before The Ashes will be released on December 1st for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, and Switch.
