I'm normally not easily excited (pun intended), but this game simply looks like a dream come true! Check out these trailers and the gameplay:








The game is expected in 2019. I've always been a great fan of Conan the Barbarian - maybe it's time to become Conan  :D

ABOUT THIS GAME

UNDEAD CITADEL is an action-packed title exclusively built for VR that relies on a hybrid physics-driven combat system which allows for unobtrusive close/ranged medieval skirmishes with real-life movements, all within a visually stunning fantasy universe threatened by undead annihilation.

FEATURES

  • Innovative hybrid physics-based combat engine.

  • Smash or cut your enemies down with over 40+ different close combat weapons with real-life movements: swords, axes, war hammers, maces, shields, longswords or even your own fists.

  • Take the undead down with ranged weaponry like javelins, bow and arrows, or blow them up with powerful explosives.

  • Engage against dozens of different close combat, ranged or heavily armored enemy types.

  • Find and use slow motion, strength, invulnerability or freeze magic potions to mutate your power and obliterate the dead ones.

  • Full-size campaign: find your way through a huge apocalyptic fantasy environment, with 10+ levels to explore, including exterior and interior scenery.

    Real Life movements eh. Looks very scripted to me as if it's on rails. Hopefully it will have free movement and smooth  turning options. Aside from that, yeh looks pretty decent.

    I'm pretty sure it has full locomotion etc. Also I like this:

    "Full-size campaign: find your way through a huge apocalyptic fantasy environment, with 10+ levels to explore, including exterior and interior scenery."

    Maybe it's a good thing with PSVR support if that implies that the game will be quite polished and play smoothly in PCVR (just as long we get better textures o:)

    The only problem I've got with VR games right now is I find the AI dumb most of the time. I would love to fight just one character if it meant that character would give me a good challenge in VR. While it all looks good swishing your sword around and shooting arrows, these Youtube clips make the enemy look rather easy to kill.

    I'd love an arena type game where you fight characters with good fighting skills. Where I really had to defend myself and battle it out to the death and not just kill them with one swish of my sword. Would that be really hard to do? I've got know idea because I'm not a dev, but is it possible to make AI that clever?

    The game does look good though, it looks much better then a lot of the games I've seen and I'll defiantly pick it up just for it's looks alone.

    I believe designing great AI is one of the hardest things to do in a game - it's so much easier making dumb in-game enemies and opponents (or dead and lifeless levels with some puzzles). Gorn may have the worst ever AI, but seems to survive on a fun "the more the merrier" approach. Have you tried Blade and Sorcery? - I haven't, I'm not a great fan of early access, but it seems that the majority of users like the game - then again, not sure about the AI:


    For sword fighting, I hope Shadow Legend will be awesome - also for the AI. Every one is using UE4 these days - we need a company developing awesome AI for enemies to be implemented in the games - and maybe prices could reflect in-game enemies' performance on a cognitive ladder much like this one  B)

    Sadly, I'm not sure we've really moved on since the ReaperBots in Quake...  Those were the days  ;)

    I was looking to get the game, but like you, I'm not a fan of early access. I like to play a game when it's fully completed with patches and all. I usually purchase a game a few months after release and can even get it cheaper sometimes.

    It kinda made my day too - if the devs get this one right, it could easily be among my top 5 VR games.

    Good find mate, also I forgot about Defector, so now I have a TOP SIX to look forward to :)

    My new list: 
    Stormland
    Undead Citidel
    Lone Echo 2
    Shadow Legend
    Defector
    Asgard's Wrath

    I think all six are due out in 2019 but so far we only got a release date for Shadow Legend which is 28th February 2019 so only 3 days to go! :smiley:

    I really like blade and sorcery, this looks like a fleshed out version with better graphics. Ai is certainly very hard thing to get right in a VR melee game as there are far more variable in VR compared to pancake, i think we have to remember that it's very early on in this new genre I'm also not a dev but at a guess more fluid reactive ai is some way off.
