Hellraid is an upcoming video game in development by Techland for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.

Gameplay[edit]

Hellraid will feature both co-operative and single player modes, as well as an online mode called 'Game Master'.[3] The game will also feature randomly generated content.[4] The co-op mode will be able to feature up to four players.[5] The game will also be played from a first-person perspective.[6]

Plot[edit]

A select few must battle the armies of hell.[7] The player can do this with both melee and magic.

Development[edit]

The game was originally going to be a mode for Dead Island, which was also developed by Techland, before it became an individual game.[3] The game's working title was Project Hell.[4] The game was first announced in a press release on April 29, 2013. The press release stated that the game would be released in 2013.[7] The game was described as a mix "the best aspects of" Dead Island and The Elder Scrolls and a spiritual successor to the 1990s games such as Hexen and Witchaven.[8][9]
