Perhaps one of my most anticipated titles for 2014, yes I’m not like most other people, is Hellraid.

For those unfamiliar, you can check out some of the screenshots that have been released. You can also see the first gameplay trailer that was released almost a year ago.

Techland announced a little over a month ago a new IP called Hellraid. It’s basically Dead Island meets a dark fantasy setting. Hellraid is a first person hack-n-slash game that can be played cooperatively with up to three different friends. You can play as four different classes including a Warrior, Mage, Paladin, & a Rogue – so there are plenty of characters for all different play styles.

First Gameplay Of Hellraid Emerges

Posted on May 8, 2013 by Joshua Rust

Announced just a little over a week ago was Hellraid, coming from developer of the popular Dead Island franchise, Techland. Hellraid is essentially Dead Island meets Skyrim with four player co-op – which sounds like a win-win to me.  Here is how the game is described on the official website in terms of playable classes:

Play in cooperation in a team of four heroes with different skills and weapon capabilities. Slaughter enemies with swords and axes as a Warrior. Heal and protect your friends with the Paladin’s defensive magic. Burn, freeze and electrocute demons with the Mage’s staff and kill with precision of the Rogue’s crossbow.

Today Techland released a brief gameplay trailer showing off a glimpse of what the combat in Hellraid will be like. Which, the entire combat system was taken from the Dead Island game and implemented into this game. For the trailer keep reading after the jump.Read More
