A44 Games and Kepler Interactive have released a lengthy new gameplay trailer for Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn.
The over five-minute trailer dives into many of the diverse locales seen in Flintlock, and gives us our best look yet at the game’s combat. Flintlock is a Souls-like that gives players a variety of abilities to use, including melee weapons, magic, and guns.
At the same time, players are accompanied by an adorable fox-like creature named Enki that assists during combat. Enki has magical abilities that let him teleport around the battlefield and launch attacks at enemies. The trailer gives a good idea of how Enki’s abilities can be used in tandem with normal attacks to create dynamic combos, and the creature is also used for traversal in the environment.
Flintlock is the second game from A44 Games, which previously released the Souls-like title Ashen. In the world of Flintlock, the Door to the Afterlife has been opened, and the armies of the dead have pushed the living to extinction. Players take on the role of Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army and one of humanity’s last hopes. Here’s an overview of the game’s key elements from its Steam page.
- Forge a bond like no other – Join Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, and your companion Enki, a strange creature gifted with magical powers, in their personal vendetta against the gods.
