Electronic Theatre Image8-bit Studios’ Skara – The Blade Remains is slowly attracting the attention of the videogames community. Following the announcement that the project would utilise Unreal Engine 4 earlier this year and the subsequent release of alpha footage from the videogame, it’s not surprising that many are looking ahead to what Skara – The Blade Remains could become. Now however, 8-bit Studios have revealed the design principles that underpin the production.

Offered to press as ‘The Six Skara Principles’, the offering reveals much more about the videogame. Not only will Skara – The Blade Remains be made available for the new generation of consoles, but the videogame will be offered as a free-to-play title. These and other new details follow below in the principles given by 8-bit Studios, verbatim from the source, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Skara – The Blade Remains.

COMPELLING GRAPHS: With the amazing tools we offer next-gen graphics as never seen in a Free-To-Play Game. These projects tend to offer low-poly persistent worlds instead of real time high definition renders like next-gen consoles. We are changing that.

 

REALISTIC COMBAT SYSTEM: In Skara players will have absolute control over their character movements choosing the timing and direction of each attack. Our goal is to mix the accuracy of a Versus Fighting game with the fast paced action of a First Person Shooter.

 

COMPETITION: The skill of the player is the key for success in Skara. Our combat system is easy to learn but hard to master, so only the best warriors will reach the top positions in the rankings and tournaments. This characteristic makes Skara the perfect eSport game.

 

WRITE YOUR OWN STORY: We will promote and reward skilled players as the real protagonists of Skara. They will motivate others to reach a higher status and will write their own history for posterity. Creative players will also contribute to the world of Skara by starting new factions, designing banners, weapons, armours and even their own cities.

 

CUSTOMIZABLE FIGHTING STYLE: Players will be able to acquire new weapons, shields and armour, but also movements, combos, fighting techniques and even fatalities! Players will differentiate themselves not only by their appearance, but finding the best combination of equipment and fighting style will be hard challenging.

 

PLAYER RETENTION: Each rank will continually unblock new options and features. Players will be able to create factions and invite other to join them in battle. Some may eventually fund their own cities and defend them from the enemy’s raids. Each step will be challenging and exciting and will create a sense of community that will keep players engaged.
