Following the success of games such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, it seems there are no end of developers wanting to create Battle Royale-like games. Egress looks a bit special though, partly as it features Dark Souls-like combat.
Hardcore Dark Souls-like combat in Egress
Developer Fazan has announced their new game, Egress. They say that it is a “role-playing battle royale with an intense hardcore melee combat system” which is similar to Dark Souls. The dark setting mixes the Victorian era with Lovecraftian horror. It features playable heroes who have unique abilities and weapons. The city is also fully-explorable. You can crawl through sewers, hide in houses or take a more scenic route atop the rooftops.
The Souls-like combat is based on ability combos, melee attacks, dodges and takes into account the weaknesses of the characters. You can either go it solo or enter team versus team matches.
Egress is scheduled to be released later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. If you like the look of the game, you may want to sign up for the closed beta test.
