Last Epoch (Early Access) – A Modern High-Quality Action RPG with Stunning Graphics and Old-School RPG Mechanics

Game Review

 

Last Epoch is an awesome dungeon-crawler with realistic graphics that are stunning to look at.

It’s like Diablo with modern graphics and all the action packed into a hack and slash dark fantasy world. You’re in the world of Eterra, which was lost to “The Void” a long, long time ago. You’re the hero and your job is to bring Eterra back from the grasp of the dark powers.

Last Epoch pits you against tons of undead minions, monsters, and creatures in this hack and slash action RPG that’ll have you nostalgic for Diablo or Baldur’s Gate.

Currently, you can play the game in its alpha demo. It’s still very very early in development, but you can get a good feel for how the game will play and the combat system (which I expect to change a lot over time). It has some pitfalls and isn’t completely polished, but it already has a solid foundation.

You can play a decent amount of the game which includes a piece of the campaign, a few boss fights, and even an arena mode. If you’ve played Diablo before, you’ll fit right in. You basically navigate through a dungeon, fight monsters, get loot, and level yourself up. You can also choose between two classes in the demo right now. The game combines tons of character customization, replayability, and even time travel.

The best part about Last Epoch is probably the game’s graphics. It looks surreal- everything from your weapons to the monsters to each individual grain of dirt. If the whole game gets this level of polish, it’ll easily be one of the best-looking RPGs ever made. The visuals are super high-quality.

I read that the game will feature both single-player and online multiplayer as well as a full story mode campaign and tons of content for endgame players. It’s basically a modern MMORPG with a Diablo-like feel and the promise of lots of content like quests, gear, raids, and even randomized dungeons for a unique run every time.

It’ll also have ten classes to choose from with extensive skill trees, play styles, roles, and combat mechanics like the Paladin, Sorcerer, Bladedancer, Beastmaster, Warlock, Void Knight, Spellblade, Marksman, Druid, and Necromancer. This is an upcoming MMORPG you need to keep your eyes on. Loot is even randomized as well.

Last Epoch is an awesome action RPG with impressive graphics, a huge dark fantasy world to explore, lots of content promised, and unique dungeons for each crawl session! When the game finally rolls out, it just may be the next big MMO. It focuses on old-school RPG mechanics with updated graphics and systems.

You can check out the Kickstarter page when it launchers on 4/17/18.

I play the newest to the crappiest indie games and filter them for the rest of the crew.

In other words, I’m a bottom-feeder. Why do I volunteer for this trash?
