The first-person hack & slash that has you battling the armies of hell, Hellraid, has been pushed to an undetermined date in 2014. This decision to hold off for a later launch date was made in order to implement new ideas that the team felt needed to enhance the gameplay and redesign segments that fans didn’t like during playtesting.
“Since we started developing Hellraid we have had a clear goal to create a game that we all would love to play. We wanted to pay tribute to the best aspects of classic titles we grew up on and enhance them with new ideas, modern technology and extensive co-op that would provide players with dozens or even hundreds of hours of pure and bloody fun,” writes game producer Marcin Kruczkiewicz in an update on the Hellraid official blog.
It’s never fun to hear about games being pushed back, especially when it’ll be months from its original launch window. The upside is that this time is being spent on giving the game an extra layer of polish and the team is hard at work ensuring the best possible experience.
Developed by Techland, Hellraid will be on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Visit www.hellraid.com to keep up-to-date with the game’s progress and read up on the developers blog to hear straight from them.
