ScourgeBringer will be leaving Steam Early Access and officially launching on October 21. At the same time, the game will be released on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. ScourgeBringer will be available through Xbox Game Pass for PC on day one as well.
A new trailer teased the different areas and diverse enemy types that will be available in ScourgeBringer on day one. Embedded below, the trailer showcases The Entangled Ingress, The Still Bastion, The Wasted Pit, The Living Walls, The Old World, and two secret, possibly optional areas. The first is called The Beyond while the latter remains unnamed–we’ll likely have to discover it for ourselves when ScourgeBringer officially launches.
Developed by Flying Oak Games and published by Dear Villagers, ScourgeBringer is a fast-paced action platformer with a roguelike gameplay loop. You play as Kyhra, the latest person to enter a mysterious monolith in order to stop the end of the world, only to discover a constantly changing dungeon full of monsters and alien-looking machines.
ScourgeBringer had one of our favorite Xbox Summer 2020 Game Fest demos. The game encourages you to strategically take advantage of Kyhra’s incredible speed to deal with enemies as efficiently as possible. Her melee slash attacks allow her to levitate in mid-air, and when combined with her dash, quick parry, double-jump, and lock-on firearm, you can feasibly clear an entire room of enemies without touching the ground if you’re skilled enough. It’s pretty satisfying to pull off.
