Built using Unreal Engine 4, the title is designed to be easy to pick up and play. In order to create a smooth, dynamic experience, it’s even possible to switch hero in mid-battle if the player discovers that a different play style is required. The players can attack magical creatures and mythical monsters of legend using weapons such as a bow, gun or a staff that shoots out magical spells.

Last week a playable demo of Ancient Amuletor was released for PlayStation VR owners to try out. The demo allowed users to play as either Archer or Mage with an option of shooting arrows or cutting down enemies with blasts of magic. According to the official website, the Archer is an elf named Lia Ilphukiir from the realm of Alfheim who fights with a longbow, wile the Gunner is a young scientist named Katie Clark who has a steampunk style. Details on the Puppeteer and Mage have not yet been revealed.
