You may have heard of Eldest Souls and a previously confirmed launch for Nintendo Switch and PC. Well, there’s good news for those of us on the other side of the format line as Fallen Flag Studios and United Label have confirmed the game is now also coming to Xbox and Playstation – both in current and previous gen forms.
A stunning pixel-arted boss-rushing combat affair, Eldest Souls has been created by those at Fallen Flag Studio and United Label, and now it’s looking to launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC in Q2 2021.
After picking up some seriously intense reception previously, Eldest Souls will pair the most intense elements of Souls-like games with some classic action elements all within a gritty and beautiful pixel art style. If you’re a bloodthirsty Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 or PS5 player, then you’ll not want to miss this one. You see, in Eldest Souls, the Old Gods have broken free from their long imprisonment, and are determined to wreak a terrible vengeance on all those who defied them. Unleashing a great Desolation upon the world, farmlands turn to deserts, rivers to dust. There is however one final hope for humanity as players take on the role of a lone warrior. A lone warrior with a single mission.
“Over the last year, we’ve been hard at work making Eldest Souls the best it can be,” says Francesco Barsotti, Fallen Flag Studo Co-Founder and Programmer. “The response to the trailers and the demo during the Steam Game Festival lit a fire under us and we’re further excited by the chance to bring this experience to even more players. We can’t wait to see Nintendo, PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players challenge the Old Gods.”
If you’re up for slaying them all in Eldest Souls, then the following features will be of interest…
- The Old Gods – Slaying Gods is no easy task. Players must prepare for increasingly challenging – yet fair – encounters. Each God will present a unique conflict, but unique powers and abilities await those who triumph.
- Your Build. Your Rules. – Players can adapt their playstyle against each Old God thanks to a unique character progression system. By combining different powers and abilities, players are able to create hundreds of unique builds!
- A Dying World. – Eldest Souls is set in an ancient, crumbling Citadel, the former prison of the Old Gods. This monument to humanity’s hubris has long been forgotten, and something dark has taken root deep within.
