Right, say it very quietly so the grumps don’t get all antsy about it but this has some similarities with Dark Souls. Did they hear us? Did we get away with it? I think we’re safe.
Strength Of The Sword: ULTIMATE [official site] is a third person action RPG from tiny two-man studio Ivent Games. If that sounds familiar it’s because they previously made the Playstation-exclusive Strength of the Sword 3 which isn’t a sequel, that’s just how they named it. Ultimate is a Kickstarter remake/port of that game to PC and various consoles. It looks a bit like Dark Souls only more action packed, with the same focus on nail-biting, skill-heavy combat and a wide variety of viable customisation options when it comes to gear. Ivent provided a very early build for me to try out, details and trailer below.
