Lichdom Announcement screenshots and details

Xaviant has announced its forthcoming action role playing game set for release in 2014, Lichdom which is looking pretty fantastic at the moment. Be sure to head on over to the official Lichdom website, and check out the trailer game details and images below.


Lichdom is a violent world, where cruel tyrants terrorize the people, and where dark magic corrupts the very land itself. Only one has spent centuries trying to cure the disease that plagues the world: Roth. No one knows who he is, or where he comes from, only that he fights the darkness across the ages.

Now he has returned and has chosen the player as his new champion. As the player, you are “the Dragon,” wielder of the most powerful magic the world has ever seen. With it, you will craft an arsenal of magic and create hundreds of different spells to combat the darkness that has engulfed the world. You are the Redeemer.

The action in Lichdom is intense and dynamic. An advanced targeting system targets enemies based on player intent, rather than manual aim, making the experience feel much more like casting magic and much less like aiming a weapon. In addition, players are not bound by constraints like mana or cooldowns that slow the action, making the gameplay far more fluid.

Lichdom also brings a vast, loot-based approach to spell casting. Players get to craft their own spells, rather than finding books or trainers that teach spells others have constructed. By manipulating a diverse set of properties, players can decide how they want their spells to behave and interact with other spells. Players choose between ultimate diversity in spell selection, or powerful, but complex, synergies to create new, dynamic effects with a smaller selection of spells.

CRYENGINE will bring Lichdom’s gameplay, graphics and effects to life with amazing clarity.

The game’s visuals and action will get a further boost from AMD’s new audio technology, TrueAudio. The technology will speed the process of creating deeper, richer sounds and music, which in turn will add a completely new dimension to the overall gaming experience.

All of these elements and technologies will combine to make the player’s climb to power a very satisfying and rewarding experience that they will not soon forget.
