This new trailer for Hellraid shows that its shedding its current-gen look for a high-end makeover.
Hellraid is looking to utilized the gameplay style of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim mixed with the atmosphere and enemies of Diablo III, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing at all. Hellraid is being developed by Techland. This Poland-based studio previously brought us the Dead Island series, which has had its owns comparisons made the first-person zombie shooters that preceded it, such as the Left 4 Dead series.
Even though it features similar looking color schemes, themes and the first-person fantasy perspective of Skyrim, Hellraid establishes itself as its own action game. In particular, Hellraid focuses on building combos and offers 2-4 player multiplayer co-op and a variety of horde/challenge modes on top of its combat-oriented gameplay. Considering that Hellraid is running on the Chrome Engine 6, which is also being used for Techland's upcoming zombie-based title, Dying Light, we're not surprised to hear that the game has abandoned its Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions in order to optimize its gorgeous graphics on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Hellraid is planning for a digital PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC launch in 2015 with Steam Early Access to happen this Fall.
