Since the Unreal Engine was released in 2022, it’s not only provided us with some stunning fanmade concepts but also gorgeous games.
Sure, being powered by Unreal Engine 5 doesn't guarantee a top-notch gameplay experience, but when some projects can look photorealistic such as Lost Fragment, and Black Myth: Wukong, it’s certainly an exciting time for video game fans of the current generation.
Check out the stunning Blight: Survival gameplay below!
Developed and published by the indie team at Haenir Studio, Blight: Survival is a rougelite, co-op survival horror game with a mediaeval setting which looks to be at least in some part inspired by the likes of Elden Ring and Resident Evil.
“Blight: Survival is a mediaeval cooperative extraction-lite pitting you and up to three other players against mortals and monsters in a desperate attempt to reach and destroy the source of the Blight, a deadly affliction that plagues the land," reads the description of the game on Steam.
“The game takes place in the no man’s land between two desperate kingdoms in a ceaseless war. Within this purgatory, a new strain of Blight has erupted from the remains of the fallen. Fed and strengthened by the blood that has been spilt, it rapidly spreads - turning man into a monster,” continues its description. “As the people bleed - paralysed by war - they have turned to you and your kin. Being the only ones willing, you've been tasked to venture forth and vanquish the all-consuming Blight.”
What’s more, the developer/publisher warns “This game may contain content not appropriate for all ages, or may not be appropriate for viewing at work: Frequent Violence or Gore, General Mature Content.” This is pretty much the kind of warning that all survival horror fans love to see.
At the time of writing, a release date for Blight: Survival hasn't been announced, but we do know at least that it will arrive on PC and you can add it to your Steam wishlist now.
