Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem for PC is an action RPG set in an open, dark fantasy world. It has been created by the French studio SolarFall Games, which consists of young developers brought together by a common passion and experience at using CryEngine. The production was funded mainly thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Plot

We play as a former military officer of Human Republic, who accidentally develops previously unknown magical powers. Even though he tried to conceal this, the rumors of his abilities have reached the ears of his supervisors, who, instead of sentencing him to death, decided to experiment on his body. The protagonist managed to get away, but during his journey through the wilderness he got attacked by a group of monsters. Exhausted and barely alive, he was saved by members of the mysterious Templar order. Within their ranks, he could train his unique talents without fear, while also trying to discover the truth behind his powers; powers, which might lead to the complete obliteration of humanity.

Gameplay

In general, the gameplay of Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem for PC does not differ greatly from the standards set by modern productions from the hack-and-slash genre. We watch the game’s world in isometric view and undertake numerous main and side quests during the exploration, most of which focuses on fighting monsters and other enemies. During the battles we use a vast arsenal of weapons, armors, and magical powers. However, the developers from SolarFall Games have also implemented several innovative features, bringing a breath of fresh air to the stiff schemes of this genre.

One of such novelties is the incredibly complex crafting system, which allows us to create weapons and equipment of virtually any shape and features. Additionally, we can use the resources gathered throughout our journey to build our own house, and then furnish it however we like. The second important innovation is the unusual character development system, dubbed Apocalyptic Form by its creators. They have completely dropped the popular RPG division on classes and typical skill trees. Instead, our hero develops in a direction set by our own play style and the decisions made during the game. This leads our character to develop mutations, which can result in e.g. a third hand to wield another weapon or wings that will allow for extremely long jumps.

Technology

A strong point of Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem for PC are the high quality visuals, achieved thanks to the usage of the latest generation of the advanced CryEngine 3, supported by Quixel Megascans technology. The game's artificial intelligence, based on the Kythera system, is also noteworthy. Thanks to it, our opponents will smoothly adapt to changing surroundings and the situation on the battlefield.
