Egress is an upcoming role-playing battle royale that harbors intense melee combat mechanics that parallel to those of the Dark Souls franchise. You’ll begin by choosing a hero with a play-style that works best for you, and then, you will kill all those around you in hopes of becoming the last survivor.
The world’s atmosphere inhabits a world from an alternate universe, combining aspects found in the Victorian era with Lovecraftian mythology. The world design is complex, offering a multi-leveled city that may be explored to great deals. Heroes will emerge with unique abilities but will continuously find themselves in situations that allow them to gross stronger and discover new weapons. The Dark Souls-eqsue mechanics can be seen through the gameplay, for dodges and melee attacks are highly emphasized. Your weaknesses and strengths will determine your worth in the world, and your equipment can prove to be a massive help or hindrance. You may approach this adventure through the team-up modes, or as a solo adventure. You’ll come equipped with a life and stamina bar that will need constant monitoring, especially after being thrust into a world that’s filled with dark corners and weeping women. Many who have experienced Bloodborne, which is also by the team at FromSoftware responsible for Dark Souls, will immediately note the atmospheric similarities to the exclusive, with a dense, menacing ambiance being at the precipice.
