'Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos' Gets Early Access Update, Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on June 24, 2021 @ 2:03 a.m. PDT

Ultimate ADOM is a traditionally-inspired reimaging of the beloved rogue-like dungeon crawler genre and features endless procedurally generated dungeons, monsters, and crafting options, allowing for ultimate replayability.

The original ADOM was a groundbreaking title that set the standard for dungeon crawler roguelike games, and Caverns of Chaos is bringing those ideas to the 21st century with a host of awesome new features that take advantage of modern hardware.

Evil has been vanquished. Peace has returned to Ancardia, and the peasants dare to dream once more of prosperity. Seven very different factions vie for control over the cataclysmic aftermath left behind by Andor Drakon’s defeat. And somewhere, deep down in an inhospitable cave, ChAoS is stirring again.

Pick up your blade, prepare your spells, check your daggers and ready your bow, for you are about to enter the ominous Caverns of Chaos. Choose your allegiance carefully, for you are nothing more than an expendable asset to the masters you choose.

Fight for a mercenary's glory and a hefty coin purse, for the justice of a community in decline, for the light of purity, or even for chaos itself. Every choice you make will determine how you approach the ever-changing Caverns of Chaos laid out before you.

Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos will leave Steam Early Access on August 25, 2021.

The new "Combat Update" offers more freedom in choosing weapons and armor . The current system forces players to choose a certain type of weapon and armor. Because the new skill system now allows all types of weapons and armor to be used to the same extent and no longer limited to just one type, players are encouraged to experiment and try out new character specializations. In addition, the existing weapon skills have been rebalanced and 140 new skills have been added, spanning over 20 levels. The Early Access update also contains a wealth of general bug fixes, melee improvements, achievements and trading cards.

With today's update, monster battle is even more fun! Some powerful enemies will now drop "Treasure Chests" which have three useful items to choose from. And if the first prize is not satisfied, the items can be raffled in exchange for gold. Last but not least, there are now additional prefixes and suffixes for all shield types and ranged weapons, resulting in tens of thousands of new shields and ranged weapons. All innovations are summarized in the "Combat Update" trailer.

Assemble Entertainment is also offering a “Save the World” Edition for Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos that contains bonus wallpapers and the original soundtrack! In keeping with the game’s theme of battling corruption, for every “Save the World Edition" sold, Assemble will donate 10% of the proceeds to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

Key Features:

  • Depth for Days — Choose from a huge selection of classes, genders, races, and allegiances to mix and match the perfect build for your playstyle
