Dark Envoy Mixes Divinity XCOM and Dragon Age in a Non-Linear CRPG

Tower of Time developer Event Horizon have announced a new non-linear CRPG Dark Envoy set to be released in 2020. Taking inspiration from franchises such as XCOM, Dragon Age, Divinity, Mass Effect and more. Their latest trailer doesn’t show any gameplay, but showcases the world of Dark Envoy and a few of it’s main characters in an explosive introduction:

According to their Steam page, Dark Envoy focuses on tactical combat, free open world exploration and lore. The title also offers procedurally generated dungeons with the option to choose tactical objectives. But it’s not only the dungeons that will change, locations on the world map can randomly respawn, adding further challenges as you travel.

Event Horizon has designed a new RPG system, set to shake up the player’s experience with focus on experimentation and creating situations which players will need to adapt to in order to overcome challenges. Choices in-game will impact the world around them, with multiple endings to be discovered.

Description from the official website:

Dark Envoy is a non-linear RPG with free world exploration and strong emphasis on tactical combat and strategic layer.  It can be described as a mix of Divinity series, XCOM, FTL, Mass Effect and Dragon Age, yet becoming something entirely different as a result.

Dark Envoy adventurers can take on the journey solo or team up in two player co-op. Mixing things up, a mode called “Player vs World” pits you against Player 2 who will act as the final boss for Player 1.
