Immortal Unchained is a Sci-Fi hardcore action RPG by TOADMAN Interactive. Personally, I never saw the appeal of the genre before; however, I tested Immortal Unchained during PSX 2017, and I definitely get it. I didn’t know much about the game beforehand, but luckily I met members of the team working on Immortal Unchained, which gave me insight into the backstory of the character, and the lure.
I also watched the announcement trailer, which I included down here.
Immortal Unchained has a similar feel to the soul series, but its take on the genre makes it stand out. So if you like the type of games that challenge the player, and kills them over and over again, this is one for you. Even if you do not like this type of games, I highly recommend giving this game a try.
Immortal Unchained Game Setup:
Immortal Unchained takes place in a world that is about to end. The trailer shows the character getting released “Unchained” to fight the incoming dangers to save the world. Unlike other games, the main weapons used by the characters in the game are guns. The player’s character has a variety of guns to chose from though there are also some melee weapons that can be used as well. The developer explained that the character is released with no recollection of his past and no understanding of how he is supposed to help the world. As the player progresses through the game and meets other characters, they will gather information and learn more about the character’s backstory. Learning the backstory will be as challenging as the gameplay. These overlapping tasks kept me intrigued and wanting more of this game.
At PSX the team had a demo of the game for attendees to try. In the demo, the player got a feel for the gameplay by beating up some of the enemies. The players were able to try their luck against one of the game’s bosses if they lasted long enough to get that far. If they were good enough to actually beat the boss, they got to write their names on the wall letting all the booth’s visitors know that they were one of the few to make it past the demo. Unfortunately, I was not one of those few, but I really enjoyed the experience. Overall, I cannot wait for this game to hit the market so I can play it some more.
The game is planned to be released for PS4, Xbox One, and Steam. Unfortunately preordering is not available yet but you can check the game’s website here.
