There have been a lot of people keenly monitoring the progress of the rather lovely looking Unto The End since its 2017 E3 reveal. It’s finally here now though, and while it may be pleasing on the eyes, this combat-fueled adventure is going to be challenging your skills to the max.
Unto The End is the handcrafted adventure from husband and wife team Stephen Danton and Sara Kitamura, better known as 2 Ton Studios. It combines a breathless escapade with intense combat and whisks you off to a hostile, yet beautiful and atmospheric, world. For a grand total of £20.99, you could venture into Unto The End on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Stadia, and PC – while Nintendo Switch owners must wait until 17th December. The good news for Xbox Game Pass subscribers is that it’s launching straight into the library.
The story is but a simple one in Unto The End: get home to your family. You won’t take on the role of an epic hero or highly trained fighter, instead a mere warrior that’s fairly decent with a sword. The onus is on you to master the combat and showcase your skills through intense sword fights by predicting the enemies actions and reacting appropriately. Furthermore, spotting opportunities to trade and deciding when to use items must become second nature if you’re to overcome the challenge ahead. So, how will you make it home?
- Read-React Combat: One of a kind combat system focused on skill and mastery, designed and built from the ground up specifically for 2D. Fight intelligently and strike tactically with your sword and range weapons in fierce one-on-one and group battles
- Handcrafted Encounters: The adventure unfolds through carefully crafted encounters, each featuring intelligent, worthy opponents, all with their own motivations and place in the world
- Player-Skill Focused: A challenging single-player experience with minimal handholding. All the father’s abilities are available from the outset and mastery of those skills, as well as keen observation of your surroundings, are key to survival and success
- Unforgiving Terrain: From cavernous underground ruins to harsh mountain peaks, overcome environmental challenges and deadly traps as you travel through a world of meticulously crafted landscapes
