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.

  - Not Just Diablo - 12 Best Upcoming Hack'n'slash Games - dokument - 2021-02-03
 
  1. Release date: Second quarter 2021 (PC), 2022 (PS4, XOne)
  2. Why wait: Because it's an interesting combination of hack'n'slash and survival

Gatewalkers is an indie production by A2 Softworks, the biggest project of these developers so far. In the game, we learn the story of the title Gatewalkers, who can move between different realms. We will play one of them and perform tasks assigned by the Guild. The plot itself, however, is not the most important thing here. The crux of the game is exploration of randomly-generated lands, which are quite distinct. And so, hosts of enemies aren't the only danger the hazardous environments, toxic, or freezing, for example, also will have to be taken into account.

The game has been prepared with cooperative mode in mind (for up to four people), so in order to survive in unfavorable circumstances, cooperation of players during each expedition and proper assignment of tasks will be of great importance. Characters will not be limited by the typical classes known from RPGs, so we will have a lot of freedom in creating our own hero. If you'd like to check out Gatewalkers, remember that the game's free open beta will be launched on Steam on February 3.
