The Elder Scrolls 6 meets Mirror's Edge in stunning new Unreal Engine 5 game

The Elder Scrolls 6 meets Mirror's Edge in stunning new Unreal Engine 5 game

Parkour and magic are a winning combo

If you like slinging spells at enemies, this might be the game for you. If you like fast-paced movement with a sprinkling of parkour, this might be the game for you.

Sadly, there’s no release date known for this beauty, but it’s definitely worth adding to your wishlist.

For Elder Scrolls goodness it's worth checking out the latest expansion for Elder Scrolls Online

The Nightscarred: Forgotten Gods is a medieval fantasy game with a “hybrid combat system” that combines magic with traditional swordplay. However, it’s also got lots of fast-paced movement too, so it looks superfluid.

Playable solo, the game’s story is also focused on two-player co-op, so you can hare about with a mate while you pinball between enemies taking them down with deft stabs, or shattering ice powers.

The trailer makes it look like The Elder Scrolls with a buttload of adrenaline running through it, kind of like if it had a baby with Mirror’s Edge.

According to the game’s Steam page, you’ll be able to handcraft your own spells, perhaps combining them to make them more powerful.

The ability to transform how your spell acts by collecting runes sounds like the magical version of modding a gun, by tweaking certain components reducing things like casting time or area of effect.

Another talking point for The Nightscarred is the physics-based world, which might result in some hilarious moments, but also some bombastic destruction and damage on enemies. You can definitely see how the enemies react to being hit in the trailer and it could end up being a wonderful feature.

You also get to play as a bad guy, which is an interesting concept that often gets overlooked in the world of games. Seeing how that plays out in this Turkic mythology-inspired world could be a highlight.

It appears the game is only slated for PC, so you can wishlist it on Steam, but hopefully, it comes to consoles for lots of magical fun.
