Hellraid’s new incarnation to be live-streamed tomorrow

Up until this year, Techland had been developing its upcoming medieval-fantasy first-person hack-and-slash title – Hellraid – for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. In April, however, the Polish developer had announced that Hellraid would be transitioned to the latest version of Techland’s technology, designed to take full advantage of the newest hardware generation – Chrome Engine 6. As such, the game has ditched the last-generation consoles, and is now launching on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Last month, the game’s newest facelift was shown to journalists behind closed doors during Gamescom. Today, Techland has announced a new live-stream, which will – for the first time – publicly show Hellraid after its transition to the new-gen. The stream will begin tomorrow on September 16th at 10:00 AM PDT on the developer’s official Twitch channel.

Hellraid’s basic plot goes something like this – the player is the last member of a cursed kin, who has formed an alliance with an old mage. Together, the player and the old mage must try to stop the impending forces of hell (hence its title). Hellraid features both co-operative and single player modes, as well as an online mode called ‘Game Master’. The game also features randomly generated content, and the co-op mode features up to four players.

The game was originally going to be a mode for Dead Island, which was also developed by Techland, before it became an individual game. The game’s working title was ‘Project Hell’. The game was first announced in a press release on April 29th, 2013. The press release stated that the game would be released in 2013. The game was described as a mix “the best aspects of” Dead Island and The Elder Scrolls, and a spiritual successor to the 1990s games such as Hexen and Witchaven.

As mentioned above, Hellraid launches on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, sometime in 2015. A Steam Early Access for PC is planned for fall 2014.
