League Of Geek’s Solium Infernum revival was first revealed on the finish of final 12 months, and whereas I received to see a really early alpha model of it again then, the next demo footage wasn’t fairly prepared for public consumption. Happily, League Of Geeks have now added the ultimate little bit of infernal spit and polish to Solium’s first gameplay trailer, which has been proven off throughout IGN Fanfest this week. Come and have a gander.
In case you want reminding, Solium Infernum is a method game set in hell the place you play an Archfiend preventing to say Satan’s empty throne. As nicely as manoeuvring armies of demonspawn round its ashen, hexagonal panorama, you will be politicking with different Archfiends after the identical aim, putting offers, stabbing them within the again, and usually outwitting them to say your hellish prize.
In my alpha demo, I noticed 4 of its Archfiends in motion: Andromalius (the fallen blond angel boy from the trailer), Lilith (the feathery harpie), Astaroth (the massive, armoured demon prince), and Belial (the horned smug vizier kind whose fingers are seemingly locked in a everlasting steeple). In this new trailer, although, we are able to see two extra: Murmur, an indignant winged marquis whose helmet appears to comprise the Eye Of Sauron on it, and Erzsebet, a princess with massive pink eyes and a aptitude for Elizabethan trend.
You can see a few them hissing and chittering away in its diplomatic menu screens within the trailer, and you will be observing their ugly mugs fairly a bit as you intend your turns. You also can see its legion battles in full swing, too, the place 100-strong hordes demons conflict on the fields of Hell in absolutely simulated scraps.
Even higher, we get a glimpse of a few of its Titans in motion, too, that are highly effective items you’ll be able to summon into battle in case you receive the proper ritual spell and statuette. When I spoke to League Of Geeks co-founder Trent Kusters final 12 months throughout Solium’s preliminary reveal, he stated Titans have been one thing new they have been bringing to their model of Solium Infernum, however that a lot of them have been based mostly on the unique game’s strongest and devastating legions, so there could also be a couple of acquainted faces in there in case you’re a hardened Solium-ite.
There’s nonetheless no phrase on when Solium Infernum will likely be getting into early entry simply but, however the goal continues to be someday later this 12 months, based on League Of Geeks, so we’ll preserve you posted as quickly as we all know extra. In the meantime, you’ll be able to take a look at extra about it over on Steam.
