Following its exclusive reveal at GamesRadar+â€™s prestigious E3 event â€“ the Future Games Show, indie publishing house United Label is excited to share a brand new trailer for the much-awaited pixel art, souls-like boss rush, Eldest Souls. It will release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on 29 July 2021.
Created by indie developer Fallen Flag Studios, and published by United Label, Eldest Souls is a challenging, pixel-art boss-rush game with a focus on fast-paced brutal combat. In a final act of vengeance, the Old Gods have unleashed a great Desolation upon the world, turning farmlands to the desert, and rivers to dust. You, a lone warrior, must explore the vast, forgotten Citadel, in search of the Old Gods. Your quest? Kill them all in boss rush glory.
Eldest Souls focuses on only the toughest and most engaging of combat encounters â€“ the Bosses â€“ with each Old God presenting a new and unique challenge. Fitting rewards await those who triumph in the form of new powers and abilities, which can be combined in numerous ways to result in a multitude of diverse builds. But as players explore the labyrinthine passages of the Citadel, theyâ€™ll also encounter intriguing NPCs, compelling questlines, and a series of dark and ominous mysteries. Slowly uncover the truth behind the Old Gods and their agelong imprisonmentâ€¦
The brand new, fully animated trailer tells the epic story of the world, from the humble beginnings of man to their enslavement by the Old Gods, and finally, to mankindâ€™s eventual uprising. Ending on a note of futility, the titleâ€™s nameless protagonist overlooks the colossal Citadel, wherein lies a nigh-impossible task â€“ overthrow the Old Gods once and for all.
