NECROPOLIS PAX Prime 2015 Trailer

By Peter Stojanov, 1 year ago
Harebrained Schemes, a newer development team consisting of Jordan Weissman (Shadowrun), has just come out with a new trailer for their upcoming dungeon crawling game titled NECROPOLIS at PAX Prime 2015. In this third-person adventure, players will be able to explore constantly changing dungeons that shift and change while the player is delving. You will also be able to create potions from magic ingredients, locate mystical books to upgrade and customize their character, and combat monsters with combinations of light and heavy attacks while learning to time and anticipate their attacks. There is also the ability to "reroll" the environments if players don't like the current layout of the dungeon they're exploring.


There, in the depths of a huge complex constructed by magic, lies the greatest collection of magical items and treasure that the world has ever known. After all his conquests and victories, Abraxis retreated to his Necropolis to work his magic, in darkness far removed from the rest of civilization.

The mazes and corridors of the Necropolis shift and change at the whim of the Brazen Head, a magical intelligence created by the archmage. Part butler, part taskmaster and part tormentor, the Brazen Head mocks, goads and pushes adventurers deeper and deeper into Abraxis' domain.

This is because, unlike most tombs, the Necropolis invites adventurers in; it needs them. Those who die within its walls feed the magic that powers the shrine. It is a trap, a self-perpetuating machine feeding on souls. Dead adventurers spirits turn arcane wheels, and their corpses are repurposed as Automatons; magical marionettes that prowl the corridors searching for intruders.

And the Necropolis is much, much bigger on the inside than the outside. Oh, and it shifts and changes at the whim of the Brazen Head. And it’s filled with Abraxis’ greatest enemies, and every monster ever encountered during his adventures. Did we not mention that?

Thousands have entered the Necropolis. Legend says, somewhere inside, undead and immortal, Abraxis presides on an onyx throne. In ten centuries, only one adventurer has escaped, and I’m afraid he emerged quite mad. But you... I’m sure you’ll make it out just fine. You seem like the adventurous type.

Hello everybody! My name is Peter but I'm usually known as smokin cheez or just cheez. I've been a Newshound and reviewer for TrueTrophies for awhile now and when I heard that TA needed some more Newshounds I applied right away! The meaning behind my gamertag isn't what most potheads think it is, it's just because I like cheese, especially ones that are smoking. I live in Ontario, Canada and I love to write. Just mopping up school now and working at the airport to pay off loans but it barely stops me from writing for these awesome sites. Even though I write for TT, the sister, PlayStation version of TA, I'm actually more of a Xbox player. I've always preferred it more plus I'm a HUGE Halo fan (played all the games, watched all the media, read all the books and comics) probably because it's the only thing I've been there for since the beginning. When Xbox One came out I even traded in the PlayStation 3 I had to get it, also since my girlfriend has PS3 and PS4 I just play the newer games that come out on hers. Thanks again for adding me to the TA crew and I plan to help out as much as I can with the news, and reviews if they let me here! cheez
