I’ve been thirsty for some actual gameplay footage of Hunted: The Demon’s Forge and here we go:
I don’t envy any game trying to establish itself as new fantasy game or a third person cover based action game. However, combining the two may just be different enough to make Hunted stand out. Bethesda obviously sees to the title and developer, inXile. I originally dismissed it because from the title I assumed “generic fantasy rpg” that I didn’t have time for. However, this modernized dungeon crawler may have enough action deserving attention from both gamers who avoid dungeons and one’s that have seen them all already.
Hunted focuses on co-op gameplay with its two main characters having contrasting skills of ranged weapons vs heavy melee. Setting up combos between enemies is highlighted in the trailer and will encourage teamwork. If you can convince your buddy to drop his shotty and pickup an axe that is.
Hunted: The Demon’s Forge is currently scheduled for release this June on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
