WRATH: Aeon of Ruin to officially launch in February 2021

By - | Views: 9,742

WRATH: Aeon of Ruin, another popular retro-FPS throwback from KillPixel and 3D Realms now finally has a release date of February 25, 2021. Currently in Early Access, they also just recently release a second big content update.

It's not currently officially supported on Linux, however it will be releasing properly for Linux next year too. Although from what we've been told it might not be at the exact same time as the Windows version. Until then though, you can actually play it with open source as KillPixel use a modified version of the DarkPlaces Quake game engine which you can find right now on GitHub. Our contributor, Samsai, actually did this and took a look in a previous article and video where it runs well.

The new update that's now available adds in a new level, a new enemy, a new weapon, a new item, a cumulative damage system to enemy pain states, an option for screen flash when picking up items, refresh rate configuration, and options for Always Run / Toggle Run. You can see the update trailer below:

Why does getting out of early access nowadays take longer than getting out a baby? Nevertheless, I bought it and probably will start playing in 2021.

It takes three months for the WRATH developers to create a single level. There are 4 levels so far. They want to make 15. I don't see how it's going to be released in February 2021 without cutting out levels and/or their size. 2024 sounds more sensible.

Well, rather a good game than a rushed one I suppose. :)
