Along with the big news with the Alone in the Dark remake, THQ Nordic with publisher HandyGames also revealed Lethal Honor – Order of the Apocalypse. Developed by Viral Studios, this roguelite action adventure title takes its cues from the 1980s dark age of adult superhero graphic novels, and sees you up close and personal, mowing down hordes of eldritch creatures, the undead and more.
Set in a shady and post-apocalyptic world, the story goes that you’re part of a secret organization that operates within the realm of impossibilities and investigates paranormal events and interdimensional “inconveniences”. That usually involves you having to destroy them using melee combat and tons of different abilities.
Lethal Honor mixes up the idea of roguelites with its progression model. With every run and every death, you come closer to waking one of the main characters, each with their own story to play. You’ll also be revisiting scenarios in order to access content that was previously hidden away. You’ll also have access to hundreds of items, relics, and artefacts that will force you to adapt your combat style to maximize their benefits.
You won’t have to go it alone, either. You’ll be assisted by several NPCs you’ll end up rescuing. In return, they will help them from the Awakening Room, the game’s main hub before each run. Allies will send you on new missions, requests, and story events.
Lethal Honor – Order of the Apocalypse is currently in development for PC via Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, and the Nintendo Switch.
