This ascension feels more like a descent into madness. A return to the Styigan Abyss is not a journey to be recommended.
A brand-new title in the 1990s (Ultima) Underworld series.
Greetings Avata—, er, Ascendant. Once again, the Stygian Abyss needs to be conquered if the two worlds are to be saved.
Fresh from Gamescom is an old dungeon in a fresh coat of paint. Underworld Ascendant brings players back to the Stygian Abyss and, like before, they are not alone.
RPGamers have been looking forward to the Underworld revival for years now. We got to try it at E3, but perhaps we should have waited a bit longer.
Underworld returns after a decades-long absence with the freeform gameplay it’s known for, and, sure, Ascendant does all of that. But the real reason this one impressed lies in another, quite different direction.
E3 doesn’t officially begin for another week but that never stops some from trying to get ahead of the game. Underworld Ascendant is one such title, with its E3 trailer already available to view.
The Underworld series is set for a revival this year. Some gameplay footage at PAX South recently debuted at PAX South, with publisher 505 Games putting together a new teaser video.
