Bethesda Unveils New Co-op Dungeon Crawler 218

Posted by Soulskill
from the new-and-shiny dept.
Bethesda Softworks took advantage of the recent Game Developers Conference to take the wraps off a new game called Hunted: The Demon's Forge that they're partnering with development studio inXile to create. It's planned for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, though no release window has been set. It's a third-person action game with a swords & sorcery setting, and it features two heroes as they fight their way through monster-filled dungeons. The game is designed such that two users can play together online (no split-screen), each controlling one of the heroes. ShackNews summed it up thus: "From what I saw, Hunted rolled up ideas from a number of different games to create its modern reinterpretation of the dungeon crawl. There was the raw action appeal of wading through waves of goblins, spiders, and related denizens. The skill system and weapon upgrades bring in the character development side from a role playing game. And the co-op design with its warrior and archer dynamic introduces the reward of playing together like an MMO."

    It is another Diablo clone. Oh, and having two people play together makes it like a massively multiplayer online game? Right.

    I don't see a single thing that wasn't in Diablo over a decade ago, let alone something innovative.

    Well I would say Sacred [gog.com] was pretty good, with lots of quests, tons of items, and plenty of replay. A really huge gameworld too, which was nice. For me I preferred Sacred over Diablo II. There was just more to do, more ways to customize my character, etc.

    But even if you think Diablo is the end all of dungeon crawlers, if you haven't picked up Sacred you really can't beat $10 for the original plus the expansion pack. And when you put the two together that is a really really REALLY long game, which if you like hunting for new weapons and getting new powers for your character is a real plus.

    Bethesda lost me as a customer after completely screwing over me and everyone else who bought Star Trek Legacy for the PC. If they treat this as well as they treat other third party titles, you'll be in for a great time of necessary patches that never come.
