Hellraid is an upcoming video game in development by Techland for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Gameplay[edit]

Hellraid will feature both co-operative and single player modes, as well as an online mode called 'Game Master'.[2] The game will also feature randomly generated content.[3] The co-op mode will be able to feature up to four players.[4] The game will also be played from a first-person perspective.[5]

Plot[edit]

The player is the last member of a cursed kin, who has formed an alliance with an old mage. Together, the player and the old mage must try to stop 'the infernal forces'.[6]

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.[2] The game's working title was Project Hell.[3] 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] In May 2014, Hellraid was delayed to allow it to be rebuilt on Techland's latest version of their in-house engine, Chrome Engine 6. Also in May 2014, Techland announced it was transitioning Hellraid to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Along with this, Techland announced that it would be a digital-only game.
