'Gatewalkers' Kicks Off Open Alpha On Steam

by Rainier on June 25, 2020 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

Gatewalkers is a cooperative action-survival production with RPG elements, in which players will travel through different worlds to save their own.

In the game you take on a role of one of the “Gatewalkers”. You are a member of an elite organization called Guild, which, in order to save their homeland, explores distant corners of the universe. In Gatewalkers you will explore procedurally generated lands and face their inhabitants or other challenges, such as extreme weather conditions or toxic air.

During your journey through the gates you will face various dangers and all you can depend on are your reflexes, the ability to move around the battlefield, plan you actions and cooperate. Enemies that you will face will require you to adjust your strategy and equipment. In Gatewalkers, with the change of your equipment comes a change of your fight style - all the skills are attributed to particular elements of your armor and weapons.

The survival part of the game will expose RPG lovers to new challenges, which are rare in this genre. Looking for resources needed to craft new weapons, maintaining good mental health or caring for other basic needs of the character are only some of the offered mechanics.

Gatewalkers smoothly blends a survival game with RPG elements, creating a one-of-a-kind combination of game mechanics. Embark on an extraordinary journey, solo or with other players. Explore procedurally generated maps, face monsters lurking in the darkness, survive in toxic air and create your own unique build.

"During this alpha test, we are introducing quite a lot of new mechanics to the game. We can't wait to know how players will feel about them. The first big change is a passive skill system with an active charge spell system that we have added to the game. Both systems lead to even deeper customization of the players' characters. In addition to that, we have expanded the exploration element of the game by adding hidden chests, challenge boxes, and caves. Finally, we are giving players some sneak peek of the storyline of Gatewalkers! We all in A2 Softworks, hope that players will enjoy the tests! Let us meet on the other side of the gate!" - Andrzej Stroiński, Game&Creative director of Gatewalkers.
