Not Just Diablo - 12 Best Upcoming Hack'n'slash Games

Lovers of chopping and slashing hordes of monsters have so far been grouped mainly around two games: Diablo III and Path of Exile. The upcoming contenders for the throne of hack'n'slash will try to change this balance of power.

Last Epoch

  - Not Just Diablo - 12 Best Upcoming Hack'n'slash Games - dokument - 2021-02-03
 
  1. Release Date: 2021 (starting April 30, 2019 in Early Access)
  2. Why it's worth waiting: It promises a diverse slasher experience

Prepared by Eleventh Hour Games studio, Last Epoch seems quite an interesting approach to creating the world in which the game's action will take place. In this production, we move to the land of Eterra, where we will play the role of one of the survivors of destruction, completed here by a dark force called the Void. Our task will be to find an artifact that allows us to travel through time, which will allow us to explore the different faces of Eterra and discover how to stop the Void. Thus, we'll end up in four eras ancient, divine, imperial and ruined and check out alternate versions of them, which the developers say will provide additional endgame fun.

As for the gameplay, there won't be much innovation here. At the beginning, we'll choose the standard hero class, and as we gain experience, we will develop skills, and select the so-called master specialization, as well as manage the equipment. Finally, it's worth mentioning that Last Epoch has been in early access on Steam for over a year, and has received very good feedback from players so far.
