The worlds of horror and fighting games officially collide in Omen of Sorrow.
AOne Games will be bringing fans Omen of Sorrow, a horror fighting game to be released on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The team is made up of ex-Ace Team developers (Zeno Clash 2, Rock of Ages), young talent from SCL and will include art by the acclaimed Genzoman (Double Dragon: Neon, Ultra Street Fighter IV, Hearthstone) and the music of Francisco Cerda (Jamestown, Gunpoint), Omen of Sorrow is sure to by a cult classic among the horror community.
The game, inspired by its dark characters, creates a dark and dramatic art style, lending itself well to being an atmospheric fighter. The game will focus heavily on complex combat mechanics, revolving around the player’s skill rather than stats.
While it has been revealed that there will be 12 ironic characters, little has been said as to who they will be. I am figuring the one below is Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde.
And as all good fighting games include, it can be played locally or online with friends! Using a netcode technique called rollback, players will be provided with an almost lagless experience when fighting online.
