It’s not often that a game’s press release is brought to my attention and immediately grabs me with such a striking and instantly appealing visual style, but Chains of Fury has done just that.
With a comic book style that looks incredibly close to the aesthetic of artists such as Mike Mignola – clean, colourful and with great, copius use of solid black areas – Chains of Fury is a first person shooter/brawler that also features an environment in which around 80% of the scenery can be destroyed.
The CEO of Cobble Games – Chains of Fury’s development team – and the originator of the game, Krzysztof Orzędowski, says “The gameplay itself will be intensive, brutal and bloody but of course within the limits of the slightly grotesque comic convention.”
With such a strong visual aesthetic – which directly appeals to the lifelong comic book geek in me – Chains of Fury is already becoming one of my most anticipated titles for 2020, with a release planned for PC and Nintendo Switch.
Split screen play is the icing on an already very tasty looking cake. I’ll be keeping a close eye on this one and will report back with further details as soon as I have them.
In the meantime – after feasting your eyes on the gorgeous screenshots dotted throughout this preview – check out the game’s trailer below:
