On February 13, the hack'n'Slay game Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem will leave Steam Early Access. This fact is celebrated with a release trailer worth seeing, which shows cutscenes as well as Cryengine gameplay. However, in the run-up to the release, there is great unrest about an allegedly withdrawn test version.
Diablo 4 is still a long time coming, but if you are already waiting for fresh action RPG fare in the style of the Blizzard Hack'n'Slays, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem will soon offer an interesting alternative. The game, which made a name for itself as a cry-engine title under the name Umbra on Kickstarter in 2015, will celebrate its official steam release in a few days.
Actually should already on 12.2. first tests for the Diablo alternative Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem appear. However, as several game websites report, there were "misunderstandings" about the state of the pre-release version, so that the developer has now withdrawn the test approval retrospectively.
Wolcen will officially leave Early Access on February 13, 2020. Then there is the full version for 29.99 euros and including the following features:
- Story campaign (three acts, only the first act can be played in the early access version)
- Multiplayer mode (co-op and group)
- English voice-over for dialogues and cutscenes
- dynamic combat system with 14 different weapon types
- free character customization (there is no class system, but resources, active skills and passive talents that players can combine as desired)
- special expeditions as a challenge mode

By the way, the developers have already announced that they will continue to publish more content after the official Steam release from Wolcan. Among other things, there should be further story files. The team also wants to further adapt their game to the feedback from fans.
