During the recent Tokyo Game Show, developer Gamera Game revealed their upcoming action RPG Arise of Awakener, heavily inspired by Capcom’s own RPG Dragon’s Dogma. The game is currently slated to release sometime in 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC, though other platforms haven’t been confirmed yet.
Arise of Awakener comes to us from Chinese publisher and developer Gamera Game. Like the aforementioned inspired RPG, players will be given the option to choose between three different classes at the beginning: Warrior, Archer and Mage. Utilizing the best combat prowess of each class, players will face a variety of enemies including deadly monsters out in a medieval dark fantasy world. Players will also be able to command and ride dragons, as well as take control of airships.
The game’s official description reads:
“Arise of Awakener is a single-player, open-map action role-playing game set in a fantasy world based upon medieval Europe. In this world, players will ride dragons, command airships, and partake in engaging combat encounters against a collection of fantastical creatures as they take on the role of an adventurer and embark on a path of revenge and redemption.”
Story details about Arise of Awakener are still being kept tightly under wraps, though players will have to journey across a treacherous world in order to become the “Awakened One.” What this means is anyone’s guess, though it does conjure up feelings of From Software’s Dark Souls and Bloodborne franchises with its vague and cryptic end-goal. What separates Arise of Awakener from the pack is its stylish combat, which seems to place a lot of emphasis on hack-and-slash as opposed to more slow-paced and deliberate combat. This will likely play into how players hone their specific builds too, with Warrior being the more versatile melee class, Archer using ranged combat, and Mage being able to cast spells for devastating damage.
More news will likely roll out about Arise of Awakener in the coming months, though don’t expect another major reveal until at least 2022.
