New Aragami 2 Vid Dives Into Stealth and the Addition of Strategic Combat

Lince Works has given you brief glimpses at the gameplay but, now, the team is excited to take gamers deeper into the evolution of this stealth-action franchise. The new developer walkthrough showcases the completely new combat system built from the ground up for Aragami 2 and enhancements to the stealth gameplay established in the original title. Gamers will get a chance to experience this for themselves when the stealth-action adventure launches September 17, 2021, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC.

Aragami 2 will take the community and critically acclaimed experience of the first title to new levels. Stealth is the foundation of the Aragami experience and, now, players have increased mobility so that they can maneuver more quickly from shadow to shadow.

Also, when attempts to be stealthy fail, players are no longer helpless. Inspired by some of the best action games around, Aragami 2 employs skill-based combat where players must strategically engage their assailants. Aragami are brilliant assassins who are as powerful as gods when stalking from the shadows but, when face to face with enemies, they are vulnerable. Knowing when to strike, defend, or dodge will be key and this developer walkthrough gives gamers a look at all of this in action.

The original Aragami hooked fans with a stealth-focused game inspired by classic ninja experiences like Tenchu and rooted in the lore of a beautifully crafted world. The addition of the all-new strategic combat system takes what Tenchu made popular and elevates it to loftier heights. Even better, Aragami 2’s gripping narrative can be experienced in full completely solo or with friends as a co-op stealth-action adventure. The Aragami clan, known as Kurotsuba, must utilize their power as they attempt to fight back against the invading Akatsuchi Empire.

Aragami 2 Features:

  • A full campaign that can be completed solo or with up to 3 players in co-op
  • Weapon and armor customization
  • A wide variety of abilities, shadow powers, and special equipment
  • Much more will be revealed very soon…

With over 700,000 copies sold, the original Aragami was a remarkable accomplishment for the emerging studio Lince Works. Aragami 2 serves as an opportunity to see more of the team’s ideas realized and establish a new face in the stealth-action genre.

Aragami 2 will launch digitally on September 17, 2021. Pre-orders for Aragami 2 are open now on Steam ($34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99) and players can take advantage of a 15% off discount. PlayStation Store ($39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99), and Xbox Store ($39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99) pre-orders will open soon.

Revolvers, rifles and shotguns and add modifications like cork-screws and battery-powered chainsaw modules to bio-contaminated sludge vials adding to your combat arsenal. There are even characters you’ll meet that’ll craft cool stuff for you, like bionic wings, a jump-pack and even let you modify your Automaton – the scrap-toy sidekick!

  •  GEAR UP FOR ADVENTURE

You are totally free when equipping your character. Not only when it comes to choosing weapons you created, but what type of gear you wear. Equip a gas-mask and an oxygen tank for exploring the Dead Zones, thermos-resistant clothes for venturing into cryonic areas or protective gear for taking on bio-contaminated creatures, the choice is up to you.

  •  SURVIVE IN A VIBRANT OPEN WORLD

You are free to explore the world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon or area unique mounts. Explore the dying wildland, the tunnels and bunker networks of the underworld, and find your way up the mountains or out in the archipelago. There are lots of discoveries to be made, mysteries to unravel, creatures to confront, and weird characters to meet in this vibrant and colorful world.

  •  AN UNUSUAL STORY WITH AN UNUSUAL END

Your actions play a major part in the unfolding of a story where End is coming to the New World. A plague is ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life is bleeding death from its roots. The Tribes stand divided, in need of someone strong enough to unite them or bring them all down… You are guided through the world by a Storyteller that narrates every step of your journey, but it’s your actions and choices that’ll decide how your story of survival ends.

New video for World of Darkness VR horror game Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife

VR game developer Fast Travel Games has released a new video for their upcoming horror title Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife; the first ever VR game set in the popular World of Darkness universe. In addition to exclusive development footage from the Oculus Quest 2 version of the game, the video also reveals 5 main reasons why Fast Travel Games believes VR gamers will want to enter the Shadowlands early next year.

The 5 reasons listed in the video are:

  1. You are a Wraith with supernatural powers
  2. There is a horrifying mystery to unravel
  3. The Barclay Mansion is not your typical haunted house
  4. Stay away from the Spectres
  5. It all takes place in the World of Darkness

Even the dead are terrified inside the Barclay Mansion. As a Wraith, unravel its secrets and hide from the sinister Spectres trailing your footsteps. Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife is a first person VR horror exploration game set in the World of Darkness universe.

  • Become a Wraith: As a spirit of the dead you can manipulate objects from a distance, change the environment around you or pass through solid walls. Your Wraith powers grow as you delve deeper into the Shadowlands, allowing you to reach new areas.
  • The Barclay Mansion: Set against a backdrop of modern Hollywood decadence and occult research, explore the massive Barclay Mansion to gradually reveal its terrifying history. You are not alone in there, so use both caution and stealth.
  • A World of Dark Secrets: Afterlife shares the same universe as Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse, where monsters are real and live among us. For the first time in history, play a World of Darkness game from the Wraith’s perspective.

Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife will be released early 2021 on all the major VR headsets, and is currently available for Wishlisting on Steam and the Oculus Store. It supports cross-buy between the Quest & Rift versions.
