Nordic Games to Showcase Their "Big Four" RPGs at E3 2016
Nordic Games, the developers behind the popular Darkstalkers series, has released their "Big Four" lineup of RPGs that they will be showing off at this year's E3.
With a mix of medieval simulations, RTS/RPG mash-ups, Post-apocalyptic wastelands where Sci-Fi meets Fantasy, and a love letter to classic Japanese RPGs, Nordic's lineup is shaping up to have something for fans of all types of RPGs.
The Guild 3
The Guild 3 allows players to create their own economic dynasty in a medieval setting. Players must maneuver their way through the socio-political world while still keeping up with their business ventures in order to ensure that their family rises and stays in power. Random Global Events, AI variation, and the depth of customization that is available for the player's guild ensure that The Guild 3 has a good deal of Replay-Value.
Spellforce 3 is a blending of the RTS and RPG genres. It has the look of top down RPGs like Diablo mixed with the strategic and construction elements of Starcraft.
Players must manage their hero group's statistics and amass an army in order to conquer the territories surrounding them. Spellforce 3's world of Eo offers a large amount of lore for the player to discover, and multiple modes of multiplayer, whether co-op or vs other players, let players harness the skills that they learned from the 30+ hour Single Player campaign.
Elex is set in a post-apocalyptic, open world which blends elements of science fiction and fantasy. After a meteor hits the planet Magalan, an element known as Elex is discovered. Elex is a limited resource that can cause machines to function, imbue magic, or warp existing life into new forms. The player has the choice between using magic or technology in order to save their world which is on the brink of destruction.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar
Battle Chasers: Nightwar's turn-based combat system is influenced by classic console RPGs like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger. Players must choose their party and outfit them correctly in order to survive the dungeons that litter the world of Battle Chasers.
The game has a slick art style and combines hand drawn elements with cartoonish visuals. Randomly generated dungeons that change in difficulty based on player actions means that each playthrough of Battle Chasers will be different than the last.
