Co-op first person hack and slash? Randomly generated levels and objectives each playthrough? I am already excited.

Maybe he just wants a hug?!

 

What is Hellraid?

Hellraid is a first-person co-op slasher that offers a single-player, story driven campaign of hack and slash action with unique, competitive co-operative multiplayer that pits players against the armies of hell and each other for loot and fame.

So just who's developing this title? Techland, who you might remember from the Call of Juarez series, Chrome and Dead Island.

What is gameplay going to be like?

Hellraid blends the classic gameplay elements of hack and slash titles with a more advanced combat system based on timing and precission of a shooter and elements from role playing games.

There will be four different classes available in Hellraid;  the Warrior, Mage, Paladin and Rogue. Each one of these classes will have their own skill tree that can be developed as players progress through the game in order to fine tune their characters to better support their playstyle as well as benefit the group when working together.

 

Flamethrower? I've got a magic stick!

 

But what's an RPG without loot? Hellraid will take care of adventurers hunger for loot through the classic ways. Shops, killing things, and a crafting systems. Not a lot of details available on the crafting system just yet.

How will Hellraid spice up the genre?

By adding in a Game Master that will affect gameplay in both single and multiplayer game modes.

Just what is this Game Master? Well to put it simply, it's like the director from Left 4 Dead but it does more than tweak enemy spawns. The Game Master actually changes mission objectives each time players run through it so that each time playing a level is a completely new experience.

To make things more fun, invite friends! The more the merrier! Hellraid's Game Master will also throw in competitive challenges for the team of adventurers to see who is truly the best member of the party But this is for more than bragging rights. The best players will be rewarded at the end of each level so they can taunt their friends with whatever new shiny thing they have earned!

 

Competition might get a bit violent between friends and, worse, randoms.


When can we expect to see Hellraid?

That's a good question! For now, all we know is that it will be released sometime in 2013 for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
