As part of today’s PC Gaming Show, Systemic Reaction revealed a new developer diary trailer for the upcoming open-world action-roguelite Ravenbound. The complete, extended cut of the video is now available, giving an even closer look at the game’s fast-paced melee combat, enemy variety, progression system, and distinct folklore inspiration.

Ravenbound is an action-packed roguelite set in Ávalt, a beautiful but deadly fantasy world inspired by Scandinavian folk tales. You are the Vessel, and within you is the Raven – a powerful weapon forged by the ancient gods to rid the land of darkness. Use skill and wit to defeat ferocious enemies, become stronger and wiser with each run, and save Ávalt from its monsters.

Key Features

  • A Beautifully Deadly Open World: Freely explore a unique fantasy world inspired by Scandinavian folklore on foot or on the wings of the Raven. Choose where to go and which challenges to undertake, but beware: this land and its creatures are ever-changing, giving rise to new foes, locations, and trials when you may least expect it!
  • Intense Action-Roguelite Combat: Arm yourself with steel imbued with magic and face off against fantastic creatures like trolls, huldras, and the fearsome undead draugr in fast-paced, up-close combat where tactics are everything. Each Vessel has just one life to sacrifice, but the abilities you attain will benefit the next Vessel that rises in your place.
  • Play Your Cards Right: Ravenbound’s deck-building feature gives you access to more powerful gear and weapons with each new life. Expand your deck when you die, but pick carefully: these are the cards your next Vessel will draw. Improve your deck to give each Vessel the best chance to survive and bring the Raven closer to victory.

Ravenbound is available to wishlist now on Steam. For more information, visit www.RavenboundGame.com, and keep up with the latest updates by following the team on Twitter, Facebook, Discord and TikTok.
