Today developer Polygonomicon released another trailer of its upcoming 3D combat action game Varvarion.
The video focuses on 1 vs 1 gameplay against the AI. Interestingly, the developer mentions that this video was recorded in 2020, but never published.
The reason for that is that they were worried that people would see the game as a PvP-only game. Now that there is plenty of PvE footage around, they believe that said issue doesn’t exist anymore, so they feel comfortable showing it.
You can enjoy the video below.
Varvarion does not have a release window or announced platforms, but the developer expects it to come “most likely” on PC via Steam.
It supports local split-screen, but the developer is also planning to implement a single-player campaign. Online multiplayer will “hopefully” come as well, but it’s not seen as a priority for now.
Here’s how the developer officially describes the game.
“VARVARION is a 3D sword fighting action game currently in development, which puts you at the center of playable, anime-styled sword fights. Flipping and dodging to evade ferocious attacks, parrying at the last possible split second to reposte with a deadly blow, and doing it all with the style and flare of an anime battle; this is what VARVARION is setting out to achieve.
Another goal is to support a wide assortment of combat situations, ranging from 1 on 1 duels to group melees.
VARVARION is being developed to balance tactical, Fighting game-like skill with the wide variety of combat scenarios found in Action games.”
