Small Icelandic developer Haenir Studio is now looking to do something completely new with Blight: Survival. With the name Blight: Survival, you might think that we are in for a survival game a la Valheim or The Forest. That is, with crafting, base building and open world. But, according to the developers, Survival means survival horror in the style of Resident Evil.
So what is it? Together with three friends you have to make your way through the war-torn world, in which a new plague has arisen from the remains of numerous dead people. It spreads quickly and turns all infected people into pretty creepy abominations. So to speak, the T-virus of the Middle Ages.
Fierce battles with people and monsters await you at every step. To make them as diverse as possible, you can grab a variety of different types of medieval weapons and armor with which you can personalize your play style. There is also character development with unlockable abilities. The developers promise a combat system, like in Mordhau or Chivalry 2, which focuses on targeted attacks and blocking.
The game doesn’t have a release date yet, but you can add the game to your wishlist.
