Systemic Reaction Reveals Ravenbound, an Open-World Action-Roguelite for PC

By Nick | August 24, 2022

Systemic Reaction, the studio that brought you the living worlds of Generation Zero and Second Extinction, has revealed Ravenbound, a challenging new open-world action-rogue-lite in development for PC via Steam. Master steel and tactical combat skills to survive in a beautiful but dangerous fantasy realm where each death brings you closer to victory.

You are the Vessel. Within you is the Raven, a powerful weapon forged by the ancient gods to rid the land of darkness. Knowing this mission could take many lifetimes to complete, the gods have allowed each Vessel to pass down to the next the wisdom they gain from traveling across the world and battling ferocious enemies. Be ready to die, but know that with every peril you overcome, you serve those who will follow you.

Key Features

  • A Beautiful, Deadly Open World: Experience the freedom of exploring a unique fantasy world inspired by Scandinavian folklore on foot or on the wings of the Raven. Choose where to go and which challenges to undertake, but beware: this land and its creatures are ever-changing, giving rise to new foes, locations, and trials when you may least expect it!
  • Intense Action-Roguelite Combat: Arm yourself with steel imbued with magic and face off against fantastic creatures like trolls, huldras, and the fearsome undead draugr in fast-paced, up-close combat where tactics are everything. Each Vessel has just one life to sacrifice, but the abilities you attain can benefit the Vessel that rises in your place, so choose your battles wisely.
  • Play Your Cards Right: Ravenbound’s deck-building feature gives you access to more powerful gear and weapons with each new life. Expand your deck when you die, but pick carefully: these are the cards your next Vessel will draw. Improve your deck to give each Vessel the best chances of surviving and bringing the Raven closer to victory.
