Astor: Blade Of The Monolith is a 3rd-person action/adventure game set in a fantastical world full of ancient ruins.

It’s up to you to unearth the secrets of a lost civilization and stop the world from falling into darkness.

The world of Gliese is threatened by dark forces, revenants from a forgotten time. Astor, a young warrior, must unearth the secrets of the past, exploring majestic, mysterious ruins and ancient temples in an epic fight for the planet’s survival. Only he can gather the ancient powers and legendary weapons needed to stop an unholy ritual.

Journey across an expansive, colorful world, full of mystery and danger. Abandoned ruins and derelict temples from a long forgotten era pepper the landscape, teasing mysterious tales that you must uncover. Aided by an enigmatic presence, Astor will dive into an intricate storyline filled with iconic and endearing characters. Explore deep forests, sprawling deserts, frozen tundras, and crumbling ancient structures as you embark upon a globe-trotting adventure.

Revealed in 2018 as Project Monolith, Astor: Blade Of The Monolith boasts a rich, deeply satisfying combo-based combat system with a variety of ancient weapons and special abilities. Wield the Runic Swarm to summon constructs, crush enemies with massive boulders, or protect himself with a rock formation shield. Master light, heavy and ranged attacks, swap armaments on the fly, block and dodge with precision, and fill up your combo meter to unleash devastating finishers.

“We wanted to ensure Astor: Blade of the Monolith had a strong, unique identity. Something to really make it stand out,” said Luis Correa, Founder & game director at C2 Game Studio. “We think the new title offers something punchier and more distinct. And you won’t need to wait long to play it as Astor: Blade of the Monolith will launch on all platforms later this year!”

Key Features:

  • Traverse the mystical world of Gliese, searching its majestic landscapes, mysterious ruins, and ancient temples for the secrets left behind by an ancient civilization. Shift into the spirit realm where echoes of the past linger, granting passage to inaccessible places, perhaps containing answers to save the future.
  • Arm yourself with powerful weapons and special abilities as you engage in intense, fast-paced battles. Switch between equipped weapons at any time–even mid-combo to deliver unyielding critical hits. Pummel your enemies with a combination of melee strikes, ranged attacks, air combos or summon powerful constructs. The choice is yours! Collect orbs to unlock new techniques, skills, and combos to grow stronger as you prepare for armies of relentless enemies and brutal bosses.
  • Harness the power of the Runic Swarm, an arcane energy used to materialize Monolithic Constructs as weapons or tools. Summon companions, shields and decoys to gain the upper hand in combat, or unleash charged attacks to create devastating finishers, such as the Wall Crush and Runic Coffin!
  • Your journey will lead you down a path of discovery toward who you are and your true purpose. Uncover answers to solve the mysterious disappearance of the ancients thousands of years ago as your destiny unfolds in an epic tale of good and evil.

Astor: Blade Of The Monolith is coming to PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox in early 2024.
