First playable games revealed for EGX Rezzed 2018
The first batch of playable games have been revealed for this year's EGX Rezzed taking place at London's Tobacco Dock on the 13th-15th April.
First up is Tetra: Elemental Awakening, a fantasy RPG set in a realm known as the Forgotten Isles, a mysterious island chain within a dimension ruled by powerful elementals. Uniquely, the world is based upon the periodic table, meaning that each island plays host to a wealth of different experiences for the player; from beautiful ever-changing visuals to exciting and reactive gameplay.
Control three Elemental Guardians simultaneously, each with their own unique spells and abilities. Build and unlock your team as you explore this enchanted world to craft the most powerful elemental force imaginable.
Armoured Engines by Bounder Games is a steam punk western epic following the journey of train conductor Dusty Beats and her partner in crime, the ancient living engine Billy Wylam, as they search for El Dorado. Fend off hordes of zany enemies, using a fully customisable arsenal of gadgets, cargo and armed passengers.
Attendees will also have the chance to get hands-on with Lake Ridden a story heavy, first-person mystery filled with puzzles. The game, created by former Minecraft and Paradox Interactive developers, promises a thrilling supernatural adventure where you unravel a hidden past in an attempt to save your sister.
In Armoured Onslaught players control B.A.R.I, a highly mobile mech equipped with a high impact heavy machine gun. Defend your base from hordes of tanks, choppers, long range artillery and more. Salvage enemy parts for money to fund an assortment of upgrades and static buildings that will help you defend your invaluable reactor.
Last but not least is the highly anticipated Shoppe Keep 2, developed by Strange Fire and published by Excalibur Games.
