The action RPG Underworld Ascendant is now releasing in November

By - | Views: 4,763

The action RPG Underworld Ascendant [Official Site] from OtherSide Entertainment is now going to release on November 15th and they have a new trailer. They previously said it would be September, so hopefully the extra time will make it a better game.

Last we heard from them, they were still planning Linux support although they didn't have a specific date nailed down for the Linux version just yet, so do keep that in mind.

For an "action RPG", that trailer doesn't feature much action.

Good that it's releasing, but they really should have used Unreal instead of Unity. Many pointed it out to them in the past.

Why do you say that? I am not clued up on the matter, hence my curiosity.

Unreal manages to produce better graphics with better performance if used right. Unity just ends up being more limited in general. I'm not sure if that's the reason for certain look-n-feel that the game gives though.

As much as that is very true and fair comment, I'd also venture from my own perspective that less games have been coming to Linux on Unreal Engine versus Unity. Maybe due to implementation difficulties getting the Linux build to work. I think I'm happier it's on Unity because I want to see a working Linux release.

Although both engines are full of pitfalls that need to be surmounted.

Fully makes me think of Dark Messiah of Might & Magic. That game was under-rated.
