Skara: The Blade Remains is both a multiplayer game and a Versus game that will allow live action and hand-to-hand combat between as many as 8 vs. 8 players in multiple arenas.

Skara is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) which aims to revolutionize all the mmo/rpg/fps varieties already in existence by blending never before seen fps-style hand-to-hand combat into a compelling story that is at once exciting and artistic. Imagine an experience with the action of a Versus Fighting Game inside a story and land like RPG´s, all blended into a fast-paced FPS style arena.

8-bit Studios has formalized an agreement with Epic Games to use the Unreal Engine 4 to develop Skara: the Blade Remains.

“Unreal 4 will allow us to develop Skara with the features and quality we wanted.” said Pablo, co-founder of Skara, “It is an enormous privilege to be licensed to use it and we are extremely excited to begin experimenting with it.”

Unreal Engine 4’s architecture will allow Skara to cut down on development time, ensuring a scheduled Beta delivery for December 2013. With its new features,  Unreal Engine 4 will ensure Skara achieves high-end visuals, while remaining both scalable and accessible to all different platforms, including the next-gen consoles PS4 and Xbox One.

8-Bit Studios currently has a Kickstarter campaign running, so if you are interested in backing the development of Skara: the Blade Remains, show your support here.
