Death’s Gate is one of the best indie games of the year (and the gaming period), but only Xbox and PC players like it. Things will change when this fascinating action game migrates to PlayStation consoles and Switch next month.
This fascinating adventure lets you control a crow, the soul reaper of the crow bureaucracy. They dominate all death, but when your designated soul is stolen, the adventure puts you into conflict with characters who have tried to deceive death for centuries.
The gameplay includes top-down actions, where you can use a few weapons to traverse waves of challenging enemies and super bosses. Outside of the battle, you will explore the dungeons of various biomes connected by the main world full of secrets. I gave “Death Gate” a 9 out of 10 and wrote that it “combines fine-tuned hack n’slash action with a cool world full of secrets. The result is a fun and dense journey to the other side. Travel.”
“Death’s Gate” will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Switch on November 23. As a cool bonus, pre-orderers can get Titan Souls, the previous game by developer Acid Nerve, for free.
