WRATH: Aeon of Ruin
Set in the remnants of an ancient cult’s home, players will explore the tunnels underneath. Filled with all manner of monster and madness, players will need to survive the Oppressor, “a walking furnace capable of searing flesh in a flash.”
By making use of the all-new Slag Cannon, players can shoot molten metal to kill enemies and cover the ground and walls with magma.
Being in early access, means players on PC are getting updated versions of the game as they’re ready. Now, a new level, new weapon and new enemy type have been added. The developer has also released a roadmap for release with two major updates coming before February 2021.
WRATH: Aeon of Ruin is available in early access on PC now and will launch for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One on February 25, 2021.
