Hunted: Demon’s Forge Info and Game play


Bethesda is bringing gears of war style cover to an RPG. Sounds interesting, and totally out of left field at the same time. Hunted is shaping up to be a solid hack and slash with a twist. Here is a new, 8 minute game play video that shows exactly what you can expect:

Product Details:

Set in a dark fantasy world, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge is an unforgettable cooperative action game, pitting you and your partner against waves of vicious enemies. Taking control of either E’lara, a ranged weapon expert, or Caddoc, a master swordsman, you must use a variety of weapons, powerful spells, and cover tactics to battle your way through menacing dungeons, overgrown ruins, and downtrodden towns. Discover secrets and complete co-op-based puzzles whilst exploring the sinister world to discover answers to the game’s deep, dark mysteries. STORY OVERVIEW: The dark ages have become corrupted. Heinous creatures have emerged from underground. Townsfolk across the land are disappearing. Upon the promise of their fortune in gold, mercenaries E’lara and Caddoc take on the daunting task of discovering where the innocent villagers have been taken. Their journey will lead them on a dark and twisted path where they will encounter death, slavery, and sacrifice. Travel deep within the world of Kala Moor…and to the secrets of The Demon’s Forge.

* Dark Fantasy Shooter Powered by the Unreal 3 engine, the world of Hunted comes to life in a thirdperson dungeon crawl with the intensity and action of a modern-day shooter.
* Co-op at a Distance Combine E’lara’s ranged attacks with Caddoc’s melee expertise to pull off gruesome co-op kill moves, perform special attacks, and heal one another regardless of where they in relation to one another on the battlefield. The characters’ differing combat methods allow player strategy to vary from one playthrough to the next.
* Two Ways to Fight Wade into the thick of the fight using melee skills, or tactically use cover combat to dispatch hordes of creatures with bows and spells.
* Spell-Powered Combat Powerful magic spells can be used to boost your partner’s combat effectiveness and even the odds against increasingly formidable enemies.
Release Date 6/1/2011

It is nice to see this genre coming back finally. Here’s hoping this turns out to be a solid purchase.

    Looks like a pretty cool game, definately one to try out.

    It looks much more like a 3rd person cover based shooter than a hack and slash type of game.

    I’ll have to try it out and see what’s that all about.

    Its a co-op rpg with cover system elements plain and simple. I think it is genius to mix genres. Who wants the same old stuff anymore?

    TPS with cover + RPG = Mass Effect. Looks like Bethesda is trying to cash in on the popularity of Bioware’s mechanic. Bethesda doesn’t have anything to worry about, though, as their Elder Scrolls franchise is probably the best modern-day RPG in my book, and I hope and expect that ES5 will continue that tradition of excellence.

    I found the combat in Elder scrolls boring and dull. This looks simplistic yet over the top. Wonder if it can hold interest for the full game..

    Can’t say this game interests me. They could have done a better job on sound design and voice acting. Then it might be something I’d check out.

    That’s an interesting take on what mashing up two genres can do for you. Will decide once the demo is available.
