Hellraid Development Halted; Devs Insist Game Not Cancelled

Last week, Hellraid developer Techland issued a blog post lamenting that their dark fantasy hack and slash game failed to meet expectations and its development was placed on hold. Resources were to be redirected to post-launch support for Dying Lighta game we liked quite a bit. That blog post, and the Hellraid official website, have since been scotched.

[E3 2014] - Hellraid is the Game Heretic Fans have been Waiting For

I had the pleasure of growing up and witnessing first person shooters since their birth. While not hte first, DOOM ignited the genre and then spun off several other thematic games. One of my personal favorites was the Heretic and Hexen series of shooters, which took the demonic theme of DOOM and changed it into a fantasy setting. Hellraid, from developer Techland, looks and feels very much like those games - putting players into dark and gritty dungeons, swamps and forests as they take on mythical creatures.

Hellraid Gets a Next Gen Makeover Trailer

Techland is finally ready to announce their brand new engine for Hellraid, the Chrome Engine 6. Finally, the undead-brutalizing combat we all know and love can be rendered in glorious next-gen graphics. While the official release date for PC, PS4, and Xbox One is still a mystery, the four-person first person hack-and-slash is aiming for a launch on Steam's Early Access sometime this autumn.

Skeleton Smarts: Enemy AI Explained in New Hellraid Trailer

The undead enthusiasts making Hellraid want you to believe in the power of skeletons to work together as a team. We are all acutely aware just how coordinated skeletons can be. That is to say, as coordinated as a bunch of shambling bones with no brains can possibly be. Or, if they do have brains, they probably aren't in any state to produce thought.

Hellraid's Combat Inspired by Real World Swordplay

Techland, the developers of the upcoming 4 player co-op hack-and-slash-a-thon Hellraid, recently spent some time brushing up on the medieval art of "hitting people with sharp things." The animators and programmers met up with ancient weapons expert ARMA-PL in an effort to provide Hellraid's combat with a greater sense of realism. "Realism" here describes what they learned about medieval weaponry, and not practicing to combat hordes of undead and demonic sorcerers.

Get amped for Hellraid with a new "Interactive Trailer"

Hellraid is going to finally answer everyone's prayers and provide a co-op experience with Elder Scrolls-like gameplay when it releases later this year. Techland wants to go ahead and pump up the crowd with a fancy interactive trailer! Titled "Edyn's Escape," the trailer plays like a visually rendered Zork and details some of the locations, items, and baddies you'll interact with in the release version of Hellraid. While terming it an "interactive trailer" is a bit of a stretch it is always fun to see a company try something new in their advertising.

Hellraid E3 2013 Trailer Features First Person Hacking and Slashing

Hellraid may seem strangely familiar to you. If you think the first person co-op slasher looks a lot like Dead Island gussied up in a Gothic skin, you'd be right. Techland made both the modern day tropical island zombie title and this dark fantasy nightmare. I think it's safe to assume these games will be very similar. With a couple of tweaks that might be a good thing. Then again, it might not. Techland did just pump out Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, which was excellent, whereas Dead Island: Riptide lacked the fun factor of the original. I'm cautiously optimistic.

First Look at Techland's New IP - Hellraid

From the creators of Dead Island comes the next new IP from Techland. The name of the game is Hellraid, and up until now, not much was known about the game. According to the latest news that has been released about the game, it looks like quite an engaging cooperative experience. Set in a dark-fantasy world, Hellraid is a cooperative first-person action-RPG that seems to draw from games like Hexen and DIablo. The producer, Marcin Kruczkiewcz told Eurogamer Poland "We want you to feel that the game is made by guys in their '30s,"You can't forget about the past. As young enthusiasts we enjoyed the first Quake, second Hexen or Diablo, and all that remains in us somewhere."
