Team WIBY and Devolver Digital will be releasing a new massively asynchronous multiplayer which is focused on treasure hunting. That game is Phantom Abyss and it is a game where you only have one shot to claim the treasure in each temple. Fail and that temple will disappear. Succeed and you will be the only person to hold that treasure as the temple is also retired forever. Players will be able to view the ghosts of those that failed to try and find more successful ways to complete the temples.
The full description for Phantom Abyss is below:
“Phantom Abyss is a massive asynchronous multiplayer game that casts players into procedurally-generated temples and tasks them with retrieving the sacred relics hidden within deadly chambers. Intrepid adventurers will dodge scores of hidden traps, leap treacherous chasms, and flee relentless guardians through branching paths until one of the relics are claimed or the devices of death overwhelm them. Be warned, you only get one attempt at each temple and failure or settling for a lesser relic means you will never see that temple again… The cleverest players will use the phantom runs of failed attempts from other players to their advantage and avoid the missteps and mistakes that led to their doom. Once the legendary relic at the bottom of each temple is found, the temple goes away forever and becomes the priceless trophy of the skilled adventurer.”
Phantom Abyss will be going into Early Access on Steam before getting a full release. This is so Team WIBY can make adjustments based on community feedback before making the decision to release Phantom Abyss. The Early Access release for Phantom Abyss will be happening in June 2021, which means it is not a long wait. Phantom Abyss will be in the early access phase for at least a year.
