Last night, Capybara Games officially announced that their long-awaited dungeon crawler survival game Below will launch worldwide on December 14th for Xbox One and Steam. The reveal trailer is included above while a brief synopsis description of the game is included below.
Test your adventurer mettle against The Isle’s procedural subterranean labyrinths. Explore a large, interconnected underworld crawling with cunning creatures, deadly traps, and a mysterious shadowy presence. Survive the perils of The Depths and unearth what lies below… or die trying. Below embraces exploration and discovery – illuminate the path ahead, find hidden passages and unravel the deepest mysteries hidden in the darkness your own way.
I first played this challenging title during PAX East 2014 and described it as the perfect mix of Zelda meets Dark Souls. Since that time, the game has evolved even further and I’m very eager to see how the final product turns out.
It’s highly likely that this game will be announced as an Xbox Winter of Arcade title during The Game Awards later today. It’s also worth noting that this title is a timed Xbox exclusive, meaning that it can launch on other platforms like PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch at a later time. Here are a few more screenshots from the upcoming game.
There have been many great releases so far this year and it will be interesting to see how this title fares when all is said and done.
Are any of you planning on picking up Below next week? Are you still eager to check out the game despite it taking a long time to finish? Please feel free to let us know your thoughts on Below and more in the comments section below.
