First revealed back in June, Death’s Door is fast approaching its release date later this month, July 20, and so naturally publisher Devolver Digital is ramping up the promotion of the upcoming game. A new gameplay trailer today offers a decent look at its quirky and mysterious world, as well as the game’s challenging combat.
If you haven’t heard of Death’s Door, it’s an action RPG played from an isometric perspective, developed by Acid Nerve. Here are its key features according to the game’s Steam Page:
- Talon Sharp Combat: Utilize melee weapons, arrows and magic to overcome a fantastic array of beasts and demigods. Mistakes are punished and victory is rewarded. Gain an edge by customizing your character stats and mastering the abilities and upgrades you obtain.
- A Beautifully Bleak World: Venture beyond the Doors and explore a land full of twisted inhabitants and countless secrets, bringing hope to the weird and wonderful characters you’ll meet along the way.
- A Dark Mystery to Unravel: Track down and defeat colossal tyrants with stories and motivations of their own. Experience a somber yet darkly comedic tale, uncovering the truths behind the flow of souls, the role of the Crows and the origin of the Doors.
Twinfinite’s guides editor Chris Jecks has already previewed Death’s Door and declared his excitement for the game’s full release, concluding his article by stating that “after just a few hours of playing, I can’t wait to push on and roll the credits. There’s a tough challenge here, but one that never feels too punishing or unfair that’ll stop you from succumbing to ‘just one more go.”
Standby for our full review of the game next week.
