Turn-based rougelite Vambrace: Cold Soul today received a new feature trailer focusing on how exactly the game plays out during encounters. This is the second part of a three-part feature series before the game is released on PC next week.
Once your party is assembled, you will embark on a dangerous expedition to the frozen surface of Icenaire. It is there you will meet different types of enemies in the form of wraiths, mad survivors, cultists, and the most dangerous of all – Shades. Each character is able to perform one action per turn; you choose between individually ranged attacks, defense, skip, and flourish attacks. The last option depends not just on the character’s class but also on your equipped relics.
Vambrace: Cold Soul will feature 7 chapters, sub-quests which unlock 26 thematic character skins, 5 races and 10 unique classes of recruits for your party, the ability to craft new items and armor, and perma-death.
The King of Shades has cursed the great city of Icenaire. Now cast under a permanent blight of frost fall, its former residents have returned from the dead as mad Wraiths. Survivors take refuge deep underground where they lead a desperate campaign against this unearthly power. Woefully outmatched, they are forced into hiding as the King of Shades amasses an army of the undead above them. One fateful day, a mysterious stranger appears in the city with an enchanted vambrace.
You play as Evelia Lyric, bearer of the Aetherbrace and the only human capable of entering the cursed city of Icenaire. You must choose party members who will lend their unique strengths to your cause. Embark on expeditions and use perceptive allies to avoid traps and strange encounters. Leverage the strengths of fighters and magic wielders to survive deadly combat. You may be Icenaire’s only hope…
Vambrace: Cold Soul will be released on May 28th, 2019 on PC via Steam and GOG. A console version will hit Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One later this year. For more information, visit the game’s Steam page.
