Hellraid Jumps To Current Gen, Looks Even More Like The Elder Scrolls

Originally slated for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, Techland's first-person co-op hackand-slash role-playing game Hellraid is riding an upgraded game engine to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One instead.

Announced last year, the dark and gritty Hellraid drew many comparisons to Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls series, sharing a similar color palette, perspective and fantasy setting. The game is more action-focused, however, with an eye on building combos and generating high scores. The game features a story mode, a series of challenge modes and an arena, each of which can be played co-op with 2-4 players.

Here's what Hellraid looked like in 2013:

And here's the game as it stands now, powered by the same proprietary Chrome Engine 6 behind Techland's upcoming survival horror game Dying Light:

Hellraid has come a long way over the past year. A new engine, some fresh features and a bit of polish, and suddenly it's a game I'm looking forward to playing.

Hellraid is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year, with Steam Early Access launching in August.

Nice, this looks way less like Elder Scrolls to me, and a lot more like a modern update to the Heretic/Hexen franchise. I might be the only person on the planet that generally enjoys most of what Techland has released (save for CoJ: The Cartel... what were they thinking?)
