Just when we thought games like Ion Maiden, DUSK, and Amid Evil were winning us over, 3D Realms is about to add another game to that classic roster of nostalgic titles with Wrath: Aeon of Ruin.
Over the past… Well, a couple of years, I’ve been hard at work trying to get over the sense of nostalgia games like DUSK, Amid Evil, Ion Maiden, and most recently Resident Evil 2‘s remake has made me feel. I’ve traversed countless hours through the farmlands and industrial sectors of DUSK and taken to the labyrinthine cathedrals and tombs of Amid Evil when not blasting my way through the cyberpunk world as Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison in Ion Maiden.
Now, just when I thought I was getting over my stay in Racoon City in the masterpiece that is Resident Evil 2, it seems that the 90’s nostalgia isn’t done with me in any shape or form. Today, 3D Realms has added another game to that 90s retro-themed roster with their latest game reveal – Wrath: Aeon of Ruin – a title being developed completely in Quake Engine itself. Yep, the one that powered the original Quake series back in the mid-to-late 90s.
Quake wasn’t just id Software’s follow up to their smash-hit title DOOM, but it was also one that included QuakeC programming language along with a level editor, allowing anyone and everyone to design a game of this kind if they wish. From that era, you may or may not recall a Quake Community member and level designer by the name of Jeremiah Fox, also known as KillPixel, a diehard fan of games like Quake.
Much like games of the time that inspired Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, you’ll find yourself in a dark fantasy world play a 3D first-person shooter. Much like titles such as Quake and Unreal, you’ll find yourself taking on otherworldly enemies, slashing, blasting, and punching your way through endless hordes of foes while ultimately shutting down the cause of their invasion.
The game will feature weapon selections as you can imagine, allowing you to slash, shoot, and blast your way through demons, undead, and plenty more when the game launches for PC and Mac in 2020 along with full mod support when it launches.
