- 505 Games announced this past week that they've partnered up with development studio OtherSide Entertainment to publish fantasy RPG Underworld Ascendant, the next-generation sequel to the landmark Underworld franchise. OtherSide studio is run by two very notable industry individuals, Paul Neurath (Ultima Underworld, Thief) and Warren Spector (Deus Ex, Epic Mickey), with their current project actually beginning on Kickstarter.
- Ultima Underworld changed the rules of what a fantasy RPG could be back in 1992, and introduced the concept of 3D immersion, a player-authored experience and an open world to explore. Now, OtherSide is making the next-generation PC follow-up to the series, innovating in bold new ways.
- Players will return to The Stygian Abyss, a breathtaking fantasy realm, rife with danger and full of intrigue. They are provided a wide array of tools to experiment with and create their own ingenious solutions to challenges. The story and world will react dynamically to player choices, challenging and rewarding their creativity and allowing them to author their experience. Underworld Ascendant will be published on Steam for PC in the second half of 2018. Be sure to pre-order it on Steam!
