Nightdive Studio strikes again with another classic, patched and improved game release for modern platforms and new gamers.
In the era of remastered game releases, Night Dive Studio shines for their constant stream of classic games re-released with many improvements, some of which aren't really well known but are indeed classic games by today standards.
This is the case of Forsaken, a 6 degree of freedom FPS shooter in the vein of the known Descent series. In Forsaken the player will fight for tech resources in a future, decadent, world were Earth is pretty much a dump full of tech to scavenge and fight for. As in Descent, the player will explore a maze of underground corridors and rooms, fighting a constant stream of enemies.
Being a newer game than Descent, it was in fact released for PC, PSX and N64 in 1998, Forsaken offers also different multiplayer modes with up to 16 players at once in the likes of classic Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and so on.
As any Nightdive Studio release, Forsaken Remastered improves the engine in a way that mantains the game aesthetics without alter the original vibe, adding support for AA, higher resolutions, interpolated animations for high framerates, new graphics API compatibility and some bonuses, which in this case can be summarize in the addition of enemies and levels from the N64 version, new unlockable levels, improved HUD and automap feature.
Forsaken Remastered will be "released on Steam in July the 31st" and on Xbox One, pricing is still unknown but it should be around $/€15 as other previous Nightdive studio releases. Down below you can check the game trailer.
