Recently we’ve seen a flurry of announcements and releases for Soul-like games. From the recently released Thymesia and next week’s Steel Rising, through to 2023’s, Pinocchio inspired Lies of P it feels like everyone and their dog is jumping on the action RPG bandwagon at the moment.
After watching a 15 minute, hands-off presentation last week, I can also confirm that Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is most definitely a Souls-like action RPG too. However, this ‘magic meets gunpowder technology’ fantasy title seems to be a little braver than other games in the genre as it’s not afraid to be releasing with optional difficulty settings.
This means anyone who wants to experience Flintlock for its narrative without fear of being punished by some very intense action will be able to tailor the experience to suit their skill level. During the presentation the developers, A44 Games did stress that there is a specific default difficulty for the game though, and this will allow you to maintain the authenticity of the experience and play the game as originally intended.
After the presentation had ended, we were given over 15 minutes worth of new, 4K gameplay footage for Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn and I’ve fashioned it into the in-depth video preview that’s sitting just above these words.
Included within that video is pretty much everything I learned during that preview session, and it includes some excellent footage of two of the games’ regions, loads of gratuitous combat and even a look at one of the game’s boss battles, where player-character Nor and her magical fox-like pal Enki face-off against the God of Knowledge.
