Team17 has today announced it will be releasing Stormind Games’ cosmic action-RPG, Batora: Lost Haven, on consoles and PC in 2022. Set following the events of a global disaster on Earth, Batora: Lost Haven will take players on an emotive adventure across the stars, with a rich and branching narrative of choice and consequence that will change the destiny of the universe. Batora: Lost Haven also combines hack & slash and twin-stick shooter combat mechanics tied to separate physical and mental health bars for deep strategic and tactical gameplay. Registrations are open to take part in a closed alpha for the game on PC, which begins on 21st July.
Batora: Lost Haven key features:
– Deep, branching narrative: Unravel an interplanetary journey as the only person who can save Earth from its impending oblivion.
– Unique ‘Nature Switch’ mechanic: Balance mental and physical powers to overcome the hostile environments and enemies as the story unfolds.
– Reactive, non-linear storytelling: Your choices will change the fate of the universe and of the creatures that inhabit it. Will you be a Conqueror or Defender?
