Necropolis for PC, PS4 and XONE is a combination of a third person action game with elements of roguelike subgenre. It is the second major game developed by an independent American studio - Harebrained Schemes. They started in 2011, and debuted in 2013 with the release of Shadowrun Returns, a classic cRPG.


The action takes place in a fantasy world, with elements of science-fiction. The game is set in a cavernous magical complex which is constantly changing its shape. The player controls a daring protagonist, whose task is to learn about, and get out of that place, defeating the beings inhabiting the complex, of which the most important is the mad archmagus, Abraxis, and the "intelligence" he had created, and which is feeding of the unfortunate souls lured into its domain. The gameplay is accompanied by a large amount of humor. In creation of the game world - and especially its inhabitants - the creators were inspired by a film The Cabin in the Woods.


When it comes to the gameplay, Necropolis for PC, PS4 and XONE is a classic action game that merges together elements such as a demanding combat system, placing great emphasis on timing, and the necessity to learn about the enemies to find their weak spots. When fighting, the player uses combinations of heavy and light attacks. The player can improve their chances by the use of different magical potions that can be brewed from the gathered ingredients. Apart from that, the player can find a certain well-hidden mystical books, which supply him with spells and runes.

The game world is procedural-generated. The effects of that can be noticed not only when starting the game, but, interestingly enough, also during the game: the player will occasionally stumble upon an opportunity to transform the location into a different shape. Moreover, an entire ecosystem was implemented into the game, where different creatures fight one another. The player can take advantage of this by luring rival creatures against each other.


Necropolis for PC, PS4 and XONE has a three-dimensional, unusual graphics. The developers have chosen darker stylistics, and models made of a relatively small number of polygons, in combination with a world full of odd shapes and grotesque structures.
