Brutal Hexen-inspired FPS 'Apocryph' is planning to release on April 27th

Posted by , | Views: 5,131

Remember Apocryph? The brutal FPS inspired by the likes of Hexen, Heretic, Painkiller and so on. Much like its inspiration, it's set in a brutal dark fantasy world, one that you're going to turn red. Well the developer has announced that they're aiming for an April 27th release!

The announcement was short and to the point, with nothing else really said. Going by our impressions from the early demo, it seems like an FPS that might be worthy of your attention. It's certainly one we're going to take a closer look at, likely a good one for a fun livestream.

It doesn't seem like it's going to be Early Access either, there's no sign of that on the current Steam page for it, so it looks like they might be pushing out the full item. 

Seeing games like this, along with Ion Maiden make their way to look is certainly making 2018 rather exciting.

Find it on Steam now and wishlist away.

how you know if the steam version is with DRM? it doesnt have multiplayer afaik, so it probably wont use steamworks and if the developers do not add any other DRM stuff then its DRM free there also

Steam is in itself a kind of DRM.

Not this again ... Can't we continue that one in the forums?

GOG itself is Drm also then. Since you have to open an account on there to access it , confirmation layer.

Problem?

I vote we add a 'no more DRM "debates" in article comments' rule to the TOS so we never have to endure this tedium outside the forum again.

Why?
I was just correcting a wrong assumption.

Having a game on Steam serves as DRM. You cannot play Steam-games without buying them (or downloading a cracked version of them, or using family sharing). Pretty clear DRM.
GOG-games are just downloads, everyone can play them even without a GOG account. No DRM at all (except for the first person to buy and upload it somewhere). You can play a GOG-game even if you did not buy it.

I'm saying this fully neutral, not to judge either Steam or GOG or DRM or no-DRM.

Because someone will "correct" the numerous wrong things you said in your comment. This will be followed by someone "correcting" them, and someone "correcting" them, etc etc etc until 8 pages later nobody has anything to say about the article any more.

It's a religious war - nobody ever changes their opinion, nobody ever "wins".

That is also relevant to Steam though or other stores.

I can play Skyrim , without Steam on Wine.



See , having all this DRM free kinda stuff automatically leads to a certain point.

So , real purpose here is playing games without constant protection measures or want GOG to take care all getting DRM stuff for you for some purposes?
