The Hand of Merlin Gets Final Early Access Update
Versus Evil, Room-C Games, and Croteam released their final planned major Early Access update for The Hand of Merlin ahead of the game’s planned full release in early 2022. The “Gathering of the Gods” update adds two new Guardians to aid players: Oberon and Atlantes. The Guardians each give the party their own unique benefit, as well as selection of spells. The update also includes a new Nourishment system, new Relics, new sound effects, improved spell visuals, and numerous bug fixes and balance improvements.
The Hand of Merlin is billed as “Arthurian legend meets with sci-fi horror”. The game sees players recruiting three mortal heroes on a journey from Albion to Jerusalem as the world is on the brink of the apocalypse. Combat features cover, ambushes, coordinated attacks, and magic as players battle human and demonic enemies. The Early Access version is currently available on Steam, GOG.com, and the Epic Games Store.
