The Battle Royale genre gets donated another representative. With “Egress” Fazan Games wants to incorporate the currently popular genre in a role-playing game, which leans in the combat system on a “Dark Souls”.
The responsible developers of Fazan Games, known for the PC title “Beastiarium”, have announced with “Egress” a new Battle Royale title, which focuses on the RPG genre. The developers also want to offer an intense fighting system in the style of a Soulsborne title from From Software.
Egress is set in an alternate universe that combines the Victorian era, Lovecraft’s mythology and Retrowave. The city offers several levels, so players can explore the streets, houses and sewers. The heroes offer unique skills, weapons and the ability to become stronger. Like the prototype, the combat system will focus on melee combat and evasion, but you can also combine abilities. Furthermore, one should know the strengths and weaknesses of the character, his role and the equipment, if one in single player or team modes crashes.
“Egress” will be released later this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC. You can already sign up for a PC beta.
