New pixel-based game ‘Eldest Souls’ trailer unveiled at E3

A challenging pixel-art-based boss-rush game is coming in July from indie developer Fallen Flag Studios, promising fast-paced and brutal combat in Eldest Souls

New Pixel-based Game Eldest Souls Trailer Unveiled at E3


Following the reveal at the Future Game Show at E3, indie publisher United Label shared a brand new trailer for the souls-like boss rush Eldest Souls, which is set to release on PS5, Ps4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Eldest Souls is created by the indie development team at Fallen Flag Studios.

In a final act of vengeance, the Old Gods have unleashed a great Desolation upon the world, turning farmlands to desert, and rivers to dust. You, a lone warrior, must explore the vast, forgotten Citadel, in search of the Old Gods. Your quest? Slay. Them. All.

That should be easy enough, right?

Eldest Souls focuses on only the toughest and most engaging of combat encounters – the Bosses – with each Old God presenting a new and unique challenge. Fitting rewards await those who triumph in the form of new powers and abilities, which can be combined in numerous ways to result in a multitude of diverse builds. But as players explore the labyrinthine passages of the Citadel, they’ll also encounter intriguing NPCs, compelling questlines, and a series of dark and ominous mysteries. Slowly uncover the truth behind the Old Gods and their agelong imprisonment.

The brand new, fully animated trailer tells the epic story of the world, from the humble beginnings of man, to their enslavement by the Old Gods, and finally, to mankind’s eventual uprising. Ending on a note of futility, the title’s nameless protagonist overlooks the colossal Citadel, wherein lies a nigh-impossible task – overthrow the Old Gods once and for all.

Eldest Souls will release digitally on Thursday, July 29, 2021. Add it to your Steam Wishlist and GOG Wishlist.
