Polish indie studio Iron Lung is bringing quite the experience in the form of a brand new soulslike that has enough fast-paced shooting action to warrant a bit of buzz. Alterborn is currently in development, and is slated to release on multiple consoles.
Alterborn is a third-person, survival action shooter boasting a bit of dark humor reminiscent of multiple genres in the 2000s–a time where things were edgy enough for our liking. Aside from its soulslike ancestry, it takes a dip into the roguelike pool with randomly generated, hand-crafted maps that guarantee that no two runs will be alike.
The game also features detailed, RPG-level customization both for game difficulty and character progression. Following the game’s story and going through a series of decisions will garner you access to unique mechanics such as weapons, quests and a whole lot more. This system definitely suits the crazed, unhinged nature of the game’s universe.
