Team 17 has fire right now and is attacking on all terrains. If the British publisher has been talked about a lot lately with Moving Out (released last week on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch) or the acquisition of Hokko Life (an Animal Crossing-like on PC signed by the guys from Wonderscope), he never gives up and presents his new project: Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos, an action-RPG from Heliocentric Studios.
Developed for the PC and the Switch, it seems, according to the trailer, that the title is a more or less spiritual descendant (more or less also descended from elsewhere) of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords. The title proposes to a group of up to 4 players to form a team in order to destroy vermin in this open world in pixel art. The goal: solve puzzles, clean up dungeons randomly generated and overcome giant bosses, the titans, and rebuild the life of a village with the treasures found. Allergic to multi, the adventure can also be done solo, so do not mind.
If the concept wants to be enticing, it is still necessary to take a step back since the trailer does not present that good. Indeed, just take a look at it to get the impression that the action is quite messy and we hope that by its release (normally in summer), the presentation will have been reviewed. That said, you may want to add it to your list of “to be continued” games as it is an interesting element and more particularly if you are fans of rogue-lites and / or frenzied games with friends; both online and from the couch.
In short, let’s hope that the further development of the title goes well and that his studio addresses the 2/3 negative points observed. In the meantime, take note, Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos due out this summer on PC and Nintendo Switch.
