Underworld: Ascendant, a new game based on 1992’s Ultima Underworld, is an adventure/exploration title focused on bringing the genre to the next level. Warren Spector, 505 Game’s studio director, gave gamers a brief glimpse of the game back in January, but it really did just amount to an intriguing glimpse. Now with E3 right around the corner, Spector and 505 Games are giving gamers their first substantial look at the game in the form of a new gameplay trailer.
As the team behind mentioned in the January trailer, they’re focusing heavily on emergent gameplay and empowering the player to approach each challenge in any way they see fit. Judging by this trailer, it looks like they’re well on their way to doing exactly that. Hopefully, they’ll be able to prove themselves able to deliver once Underworld: Ascendant releases later this year.
Underworld: Ascendant is set to release on PC via Steam this September.
