There’s nothing like a good Metroidvania sidescrolling journey, especially if the emphasis is on the “Vania.” Death’s Gambit, coming soon from developer White Rabbit and publisher Adult Swim Games, looks very much in the vein of the better games in the Castlevania series…a nonlinear world, massive bosses, powerful weapons to collect, and a great gothic art style.
Death’s Gambit raises you from the dead to wage war against gruesome enemies and legendary bosses as an agent of Death. Wield an arsenal of uniquely powerful weapons and abilities in wickedly challenging battles that demand strategic thinking and precise skills.
Explore Siradon, a vast, unforgiving land of dark forests, medieval ruins, frozen wastes and more. Death’s Gambit delivers a rewardingly non-linear adventure; discover secret treasures, multiple routes connecting different areas, and a menagerie of twisted characters who may help or hinder your journey.Advertisement
If you preorder the game today, you’ll receive the “Chosen of Death Pack” DLC, which includes an exclusive shield and scythe plus a special steed skin. Death’s Gambit is coming to Steam August 14, 2018.
