Ascendant Studios’ Immortals of Aveum has impressed with its gameplay, in which fast-paced battles based on magic and a beautiful world are brought to life with Unreal Engine 5.1. The recent trailer gave a first impression of the different colors of magic protagonist Jak could wield and the enemies he would have to fight.
Ascendant Studios community content manager Tessachka and YouTube channel manager Zach Drapala discuss the trailer in more detail. For example, there is an in-game HUD, but it was disabled during the trailer. In addition, Jak can fight alongside some of his allies during missions, as seen in the beginning of the trailer. However, for most of the game, he must fight alone.
It is also worth noting that different colors of magic – blue, red and green – are used to exploit enemy weaknesses. If enemies are reinforced with red magic, you can use the same color magic to neutralize it. So there is an element of “Simon says” that provides some clarity during battles.
Immortals of Aveum is available starting July 20 for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Check out the environments and cinematic footage here.
