With a back catalogue boasting the likes of Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages, you never know quite what to expect from ACE Team. If this week’s developments are any guide, the Chilean team is determined to keep you guessing. The next game from this offbeat collective will be known as Abyss Odyssey, and the gameplay heavy announcement reveals it to be a 2D sidescrolling rogue-like.
The fantasy themed Abyss Odyssey will feature procedurally generated levels with plenty of opportunities for platforming, as well as extensive combat options. One of the more interesting features is a power-up that allows you to mimic the appearance and abilities of some of your enemies. The developer believes that this will add “a huge level of diversity to the game, since each enemy features its unique moveset and special attacks.”
Abyss Odyssey is due for release on 360, PS3 and PC later this year.
