How ’bout a little guns ‘n’ sorcery, as CRPG Dark Envoy arrives for the PC

It’s fantasy meets gunplay (and more) as developer Event Horizon’s latest role-player has arrived with Dark Envoy.

Light ’em up

This has been quite the year for CRPG’s, as both turn-based and real-time fans have had a smorgasbord of new games to play. Now you an add another to the list, and it might be the most unique yet. That’s because Tower of Time developer Event Horizon’s newest title looks to be a mixture of fantasy and sci-fi.

Dark Envoy will feature high-tech weaponry along with its swords, plus androids and robotic foes to vanquish. But just because there are machines in the world of Jäan, don’t get the idea that there isn’t sorcery. Dark Envoy actually sounds like it’s got something new to offer in that realm as well, with hand-drawn spells that’ll see spells actually “painted” into the game’s world.

Here’s a look at it in action:

Dark Envoy offers long-time fans of classic RPGs, and those new to the genre, a fresh world to explore with a party of relic hunters. After a chain of seemingly unrelated tragedies, siblings Kaela and Malakai set out on a mission to pursue the truth and face off with their newfound destiny. The story will lead you through four action-packed acts in which you will be able to steer the plot according to your choices. They will impact the world, the path you take, as well as the final outcome of your journey.

Event Horizon press release

Featuring an emphasis on crafting and skill trees for both “technological or magical paths”, Dark envoy features solo and co-op play that’ll set players on a 20 hour quest that also features plenty of side-missions (another 15 hours worth). You an also tailor that campaign to your liking, to a degree anyway, with both “Insane” and “Story” difficulty levels. So whether you like a challenge or are just playing to experience the story, the choice is yours.

Dark envoy is out now on the PC, via Steam and GOG, and features a 10% off launch discount.
