'Dark Devotion' (ALL) Story Trailer Reveals an Unsettling World of Deadly Dedication and Sacrifice

by Rainier on July 11, 2018 @ 12:31 p.m. PDT

Dark Devotion is an ethereal action-RPG hybrid, an epic tale of religious devotion and redemption at all costs.

The eternal suffering of The Templars is both a blessing and a curse - salvation is born through sacrifice, and no sacrifice is too great to praise your God. A mystical temple teeming with a strange life-like energy of its own awaits you on your sacred crusade of suffering and redemption that will take you to the depths of traditions spanning centuries – and leave you questioning your faith and your own existence.

Dark Devotion features a rich, detailed and immersive narrative that unfolds a sombre tale of your religion’s undeniable calling where every encounter is a challenge of suffering, piety and conviction – but most importantly, it's a fight to the death.

The animated 2D trailer tells of an unforgiving world of divinity and sacrifice where only the most gifted souls (or most tenacious) will discover the entire truth of the mysterious and deadly Temple. 

You are not alone on your journey. Many sanctimonious warriors came looking to solve the mystery of the Temple and to find their salvation, guided by the chant like moths to a divine light. Every conversation with those you encounter – even the Doomed Ones locked with you – could reveal a key piece of information. The Temple itself can seem a terrible enemy, and you'll need to avoid its twisted traps and overcome obstacles between you and the truth. 

Dark Devotion is a story of secrets, perseverance and dedication: every chest or item you encounter holds another secret to the story – letters, weapons and clues dropped around by your misfortunate fellows can be used to help you on your quest.

Spanning across four unique worlds, each with their own variety of environments bursting with detail, players will choose from dozens of weapons and learn from them the secret of the Temple as they fight superbly crafted bosses with one mission: to destroy your soul and damn you forever. 

Dark Devotion features several distinctive gameplay mechanics for greatly expanded replayability – the prayers, blessings and curses system allows for flexibility and a variety of approaches to each foe, while its myriad of weaponry allow for combining skillsets to alter your approach with each play through.

Dark Devotion is set to launch later this year for PC and consoles.
