Publisher Playstack and developer Kumi Souls Games have released a gameplay trailer for the last faith, a Metroidvania-Soulslike hybrid coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC via Steam this year. This “Soulsvania” aims to offer “brutal, yet still powerful” combat, where you have a myriad of different combat options with your melee weapons, guns, and spells. Even better, all of the animations are intricate and beautiful, helping the game stand out in the fine details.
the last faith involves a dark story in a gothic world where all environments are rendered in subdued blues and grays. Here is a general overview of what to expect:
Enter the ravaged world of The Last Faith as Eric, who awakens with no memory of his immediate past. Soon he will find that he is in a race against time as his mind and conscience begin to deteriorate. His desire for salvation from this affliction places him on a cursed mission that crosses paths with ancient religions and deities.
If you think Metroidvanias are all starting to feel the same, the raw brutality of gameplay in the last faith could be something new to entice you back to the genre.
