As Adam observed just last night, 2012 – Year Of The ARPG, marches ever onward. As well as Diablo III, Path Of Exile, Torchlight 2, and a Grim Dawn Kickstarter, we also have Focus’ offering due up at the start of October, and that’s the bloodthirsty Realms Of Ancient War. And… Hmm. After literally minutes of research I can’t find anything unique of interesting about RAW, but at least it has co-op play, which you can witness with your eyes, below. Yeah, year of the ARPG is all very well, but I hope next year is Year Of The Terrifying Complex Open-Ended RPG With Previously Unimagined Multiplayer Aspects Year. That would be a year to remember.

You can see that trailer below, as is traditional in the realm of RPS.
