Arabian-themed swashbuckling roguelike City of Brass to release in May
02 Apr, 2018
Adjust your turban and raise your scimitar, City of Brass is set to emerge from Early Access next month. Here’s a look at the first-person roguelike.
It’s been a while since we last had a look at City of Brass, but the game seems to have come along nicely in its Early Access form. So nicely, in fact, that developer Uppercut Games has set a release date in stone. City of Brass will release on 4th May across PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
While the game was selling at $24.99 during its Early Access phase, the price will be dropped to $19.99 for the final version of the game. This move comes after consultations with other developers, as well as with the game’s community. Players who own the game during Early Access will, however, be provided unique rewards: an in-game weapon called the Founder’s Cutlass, and the Original Soundtrack for the game.
Upon hitting the v1.0 release, City of Brass will be completed with its 13th level, which will test all the skills you have accumulated by that point in the game. The game will also support streaming integration with Mixer, allowing viewers to help or hinder the streamer. Finally, there’s bug fixes, balance changes, the works.
Uppercut Games isn’t stopping there, though. The studio has promised further updates to the game, both free and paid, which will be delivered post-release.
Speaking of roguelikes, have a look at the new roguelike expansion for time-stopping first-person shooter Superhot. Also bear in the mind that Dead Cells will be releasing later this year, if you’re more of a 2D roguelike person.
