Today we saw the first-ever Nacon connect, where we saw trailers and developer updates from 7 incredible games, along with updates on Nacon peripherals and their latest partnerships. You can watch the entire Nacon Connect above, and check out our breakdown here for the specifics.
Our first title shown off to us was Vampire the Masquerade: Swansong. Swansong follows the story of a new prince traying to take reclaim order in Boston and rule the Camarilla. With a whole new story, this exciting new game will begin with a bloody massacre at a party, where the victims are murdered at gunpoint. Vampire the Masquerade Swansong has no official release date yet, but will be available on all platforms including NextGen, and will be exclusive to the epic store on PC.
The Second Title we saw comes from Race Ward Studios, who plan to bring motorcycle racing to life with their latest title Rims. Though we saw no gameplay for this title, Rims will offer full customization to your bikes and will feature game modes for racers of all skill levels, including absolute beginners. Rims will release summer 2021 and I am sure we shall be seeing more from Race Ward soon with more updates from this high-octane title.
Thirdly we saw another game surrounded by darkness and hellish creatures, from Cyanide Studios. Rouge Lords is an all-new Roguelike game, where the devil himself returns to bring hell on earth with his creatures of chaos, and because we quite literally are the devil, it means we can get away with a lot of dirty tricks, including stopping our characters from taking damage. Rouge Lords will release next year on all current-gen platforms and PC.
The fourth game we got to see something very different from developers Spiders Studios. Taking us back to the French Revolution Spiders Studios introduced the alternate history of France with Steel Rising, an all-new adventure game, where we will play as Aegis, a female Automaton working for Queen Marie Antoinette, as she struggles against a tyrannical King Louis XVI. King Louis has gone mad with power during his reign and has let loose an army of vicious Automatons against the people of Paris. Only Aegis can save the people of France, by finding her creator and putting an end to King Lois madness. Steel rising currently has no release window or console announcement, but we look forward to seeing more from this title in the future.
Our 5th title was the much-anticipated gameplay of Werewolf the Apocalypse: Earthbound, which was incredibly savage, with blood guts and violence being the core aspect of this fast-paced and very short trailer. Werewolf the apocalypse will launch on February 4th, 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC with exclusivity on the Epic Store.
Our 6th and possibly most anticipated title from the comments was Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown (TDUSC). This exciting revitalization of the Test Drive series will bring new gameplay styles and all-new game modes, on 1:1 scale island, where you can visit every single location. TDUSC will also feature full customisation for your car and avatar with a whole variety of cosmetic options. We cannot wait to see more from TDUSC and hope we will see a release window from this title very soon.
Lastly, but certainly not least we got to see an all-new deck-building game from Abrakam Studios, who have collaborated with Magic the gathering designer Richard Garfield to create Rouge book. Set in the world of previous Abrakam game Faeria, Rouge Book will see you choosing from 4 returning characters to battle your way through procedurally generated arenas, building your deck as you defeat enemies and complete challenges. Don’t forget to check out the video above to see an all-new gameplay mechanic designed by Richard Garfield called the Fat Deck, which will be sure to change up the strategies of many experienced deck builder players.
To close the event Nacon showed of a few trailers of upcoming releases including WRC 9, which will release on September 3rd, Tennis World Tour 2, coming September 2020 and Warhammer Chaos Bane, which will be coming soon to Next Gen Console.
