Team Colorblind has announced that their “brutal, bloody, expressive, difficult, and replayable” action game, Aztez
, will be making its way to consoles later this year.
“What is Aztez
?” I hear you say. In essence, Aztez
is two games in one. Firstly you are tasked with expanding and maintaining your very own Aztec empire with turn-based strategy gameplay. Each game you play will be unique; different events and challenges will present themselves in every game and, as such, different rewards will be earned.
The second half of the game is where the aforementioned brutality raises its head, as you will need to manage violent outbreaks throughout the empire in two-dimensional real-time beat 'em up sections that take their inspiration from games like Bayonetta
and Devil May Cry
. All of this is wrapped up in a beautiful black and white art style filled with Aztec style geometric patterns. Thankfully, you don’t need to take my word for it, as Team Colorblind has also released a teaser trailer showing off some of the game's brutal combat.
doesn’t have a firm release date yet, but it should be hitting the Xbox One sometime later this year.
