'Sword of the Necromancer' (ALL) Rolls Out Open PC Beta, Also Comes to PS5 And Xbox Series X

Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action RPG with Rogue-like elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you.

What would you do to bring back someone you love?

Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help Tama reach the dungeon's depths in order to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead.

Gather a little army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your objective.

Sword of the Necromancer is inspired by Rogue-like games like Enter the Gungeon, 2D Zelda games like A Link to the Past and monster-catching mechanics like those from Azure Dreams. The aim is to create a fluid battle system, with head-to-head combat as its main focus while leaning on monster summons for special actions and attacks.

Sword of the Necromancer players will have a chance to play an early demo of its open beta starting today. Just go to the game’s Steam page between August 27th at 10pm CEST - August 30th at 12am.

In this demo, players will be able to go through the game’s first dungeon and face off against its first boss. Here you’ll learn the ins and outs of necromancy as you forge an undead army.

“We’ve been a big fan of action roguelikes like Enter the Gungeon and The Binding of Isaac, so we wanted to make something that took what made these games great and add our own unique spin on it,” said Jose Antonio Andujar Clavell, CEO and founder of JanduSoft S.L. “And for us, we thought it would be cool if you could turn the very monsters that were just trying to kill you into weapons that could be unleashed against the opposition. We think this gives Sword of the Necromancer a lot of strategic depth, as you must decide which foes are worth the risk of fighting. Bite off more than you can chew and you’re a goner. But if you emerge victorious you’ll have amassed a major asset to your arsenal!”

Key Features

  • Turn your foes into allies: use the Sword of the Necromancer to revive defeated monsters and make them fight alongside you.
  • Gather weapons and relics: each weapon is different from the others thanks to the procedural  weapon generation system, which gives them various effects and  attributes.
  • Fight with all your might: defeat your enemies using a variety of weapons and objects and dominating the fluid head-to-head battle system.
  • Level up: enhance your character by fighting enemies and upgrade your stats. Improve your summoned monsters by fighting alongside them.
  • Death is not the end: Each try gets you closer to the Necromancer. You will lose all your equipped weapons and monsters, but you will retain half the level you achieved in your run. Also, you can choose to exit the dungeon at some moments, losing all your level progress but maintaining all your  equipment.
  • Learn the truth: Discover Tama and Koko's past as you advance through the dungeon.
  • Local co-op play:Use the Flask of Homunculus to create a copy of the playable character and play with a friend in local co-op game.

Sword of the Necromancer is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in 2020.
