1C Entertainment has unveiled a trailer for Dread Templar, an upcoming retro FPS where you head into hell to kill demons.
There’s a good deal of shotgun and pistol action in the trailer, including some akimbo fun, but you can also go after demons with dual katanas. And if I’m seeing things right, you can fling swords at the demons too, with enemies sometimes getting gibbed from the sheer force of the throw.
Outside of katanas and regular guns, there’ll also be infernal guns and customisable weapon skills to make use of. And aside from combat, the game will feature side areas and secret places to explore and puzzles to solve.
In case you need some context for the slaughter or require a reason to blast demons in fast-paced shooter combat, the Steam page has this to say:
“Dread Templar is a fast-paced first-person shooter that combines elements from both modern retro shooters and classics from the 90s. You are a Dread Templar seeking his revenge deep in the evil realm. Explore the levels and solve puzzles to find hidden weapons and upgrades. Face hordes of demons and bloodthirsty fiends using ninja equipment, firearms, and infernal weapons that will make YOU the scariest thing in hell. Gain Dread Powers and customize your skills according to your playstyle, as they will help you in your battle against the dark forces.”
So, there you have it. There’s no specific release date for Dread Templar yet, but the game will release in Steam Early Access this Fall.
