'Ecumene Aztec' Is A Mesoamerican Action/RPG Coming To PC In 2025 - Screens & Trailer

Ecumene Aztec is an action RPG set within a Mesoamerican city in the midst of a blasphemous attack.

Harness gifts from the gods and the knowledge of the surrounding jungle in order to gain the upperhand against the vile conquistadors. What are you willing to sacrifice to save your captive brethren?

The new world is approaching, and Mexico's last great Indigenous empire is on the brink of demise. Set within a dense Mesoamerican city, fend off invading conquistadors who are on a path to bring the Aztec Empire to an end. Use your home to your favor, repel the sacrilegious attack, and save your kin from confinement. 

Ecumene Aztec is an action RPG featuring a dynamic class-based combat system. Choose from three warrior classes between the Jaguar, Eagle, and Snake, and master your abilities in order to defend against the intruders. When human strength isn’t enough, make a blood sacrifice and utilize gifts from the gods to gain an otherworldly advantage. The evil of man is no match for the power of a god.

With an emphasis on exploration, you must familiarize yourself with your surroundings, both within the confines of the city and beyond in order to survive. Reach new heights and survey the city through a responsive climbing system. When all hope seems lost within the city, retreating into the lush jungles remains a valiant tactic. Prowl through the dense foliage and strike from the shadows with in-depth stealth-action combat. One wrong move, and the conquistadors will not hesitate to slash through the greenery. Even with your throat at the tip of a blade, the jungle’s natural inhabitants may step in to protect their own.

The newcomers from another world, whom we thought were gods, turned out to be just a greedy men.
Their blasphemous attack infuriated our deities.
Now with the help of Huītzilōpōchtli - patron of war, and Quetzalcoatl - the great protector,
I will stop the enemy and free my brothers.

The fights take place in my home, which is one of the aztec cities.
Our possessions were plundered, our huts set on fire, and many of my brethren died defending themselves against the sacrilege.
Fortunately, I can still save some of the captured.

It is the jungle that will allow me to prepare myself to fight the invader.
I know these areas. It is my home. The place where I grew up.
I will use whatever the gods send me.

I wasn't born a warrior, but for a proper bloody sacrifice,
Huītzilōpōchtli - the lord of war, and Quetzalcoatl - the great teacher,
will lead me to become as silent as a serpent, as strong as a jaguar, and as swift as an eagle.

  • Experience the clash of the old world with the new in an epic narrative

  • Master three unique character classes between the Jaguar Warrior, Eagle Warrior, and Snake Warrior
