Well, this one came out of nowhere! After browsing our Twitter feeds this afternoon we came across 'Stormrite' from developer Kelechi Apakama, an upcoming action RPG that could even come to Xbox Game Pass.
The developer has teased as much in a new tweet showing the game off. It looks like a PC and Xbox release is definitely on the cards, with the dev also hinting at something else, with "Or maybe even Game Pass?" as a little extra food for thought here:
Thankfully, a Steam page is already live for Stormrite that tells us more about what to expect from the actual game itself. Here's a quick developer rundown of what the team aims to achieve, gameplay-wise, with this open world action RPG.
Stormrite is a fully single-player third-person experience. Your time will be spent going on enthralling quests, exploring the kingdom of Redreach and using various weapons and fighting techniques to dispose of your enemies. The three main styles of fighting are melee, ranged and magic. However, within each of these three categories there are several choices of weapon/combat style for you to choose. For example, ranged players can choose to go for a traditional bow and arrow loadout, can choose to go for a more clunky but powerful crossbow style, or even a hybrid melee-ranged loadout utilising agility, daggers, and throwing knifes.
Magic users can choose to cast spells that directly affect their enemies, summon companions to fight, or manipulate the very fabric of the world around them. You are also able to shoot spells into each other, resulting in some very interesting interactions that can be used to increase your options in combat.
Melee users also have plenty of choices, with 5 fighting styles (and counting) to choose from, and abilities to aid with your battles.
For now, Stormrite has no release window aside from "soon", yeah, pretty vague there. Still, after seeing this one we're really intrigued to see where it goes, especially if the team confirms an Xbox Game Pass launch.
What do you think to Stormrite? Excited to see more? Let us know down below!
