Remember fast paced old school shooters like Blood and Hexen? If so than 1C Entertainment hopes take you back to those good ole days with Dread Templar.
Dread Templar is a retro inspired shooter that is coming to Early Access in Fall 2021. Players take on the role of the titular character and blast their way through the evil realms. They will fight waves of demons with a massive arsenal of weapons (that can be upgraded). At the same time, gamers will need to solve a verity of puzzles and explore the world for hidden secrets.
Not everything about the game is going to be old school. Dread Templar will also borrow gameplay elements from late 90’s and more modern shooters. Overall; it will be a game that welcomes all FPS fans (regardless of when they became a fan).
Check out the trailer above to have an idea of what to expect.
Dread Templar is first coming to Early Access in Fall 2021 followed by a global launch in 2022. More details about the game will be made available in the future. It should also be noted that the release date is subject to change as the game could be delayed.
