'Krater' Pins Down Release Date

by Rainier on April 11, 2012 @ 5:10 a.m. PDT

Krater is a lush post-apocalyptic top down RPG and the base pillars are crafting, exploration and consequence. Consequence brings not only the ability for the characters to level up and improve themselves, but also permanent injuries and death.

Descend into the Krater and experience a finely tuned top-down action RPG in a lush yet gritty post-apocalyptic setting. Krater features both single player and a co-op online campaign, set in a multifaceted post-apocalyptic city located within a gigantic impact crater.

Lead your assembled team of hardened survivors, making your living as hired guns, trouble shooters and scavengers, in search for fame and fortune. The innovative control setup allows you to effectively command a party of three characters simultaneously.

“We are very happy to announce a rock solid – oh well – release date for Krater. A game with enormous depth, it really has, it takes place in a very deep crater.” says Martin Wahlund, CEO and Executive Producer, Fatshark. “Krater brings a rich experience for anyone that likes the post apocalyptic roll-playing genre, and I’m looking forward play coop with other adventurers.”

“During the winter and spring, we’ve had over 20 000 pre-alpha/alpha testers and the feedback has been great,” says Victor Magnuson, Game Designer, Fatshark. “Before we release the game, there will be a beta available for everybody that has pre-ordered Krater.”

Monitor and manage aggro and threat levels, boost and buff, deal damage and use crowd control abilities to ensure that your squad will triumph on the beautifully rendered battlegrounds.

Explore the crater city and its surroundings in search of new equipment and recruits, or launch yourself directly into the captivating single player story campaign. Manage your team by customizing your characters and the composition of your team. Enhance abilities and attributes gained through experience. Equip unique weapons and loot obtained by mastering grueling missions and defeating tough enemies.

A versatile crafting system further enables the player to experiment and come up with individual solutions to difficult challenges and develop a personal play style, ranging from fast paced and action oriented to brainy and tactically intricate. Since Krater caters toward a hardcore PC audience, the game features a mode where the player runs the risk of injuring or even losing team members permanently. The higher risk of this mode will be offset by the promise of better rewards. Do you dare to enter the Krater?
