Koch Media showcases Gungrave GORE, painkillers, and new IP slate


During today’s Summer Game Fest, Koch Media unveiled many upcoming games, including new IPs, cultivated under the new publishing label Prime Matter. If you are unable to attend the event, we will briefly summarize the announcement, when it will be held, and the platforms you can play.

Chant (tentative title)

Release date: 2022
Platform: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PC

Horror fans may want to pay attention to The Chant. The game starring a young woman making a mental retreat on a remote island where everything that might go wrong is done. Players use spiritually powerful weapons to fight evil cults and other cosmic horrors. Players can also raise awareness of the world by accessing the spiritual sight of the Third Eye. Outside of combat, you’ll explore tough islands and solve puzzles, just like Silent Hill.

Crossfire: Corps

Release date: 2022
Platform: PC

Legion is an RTS spin-off of the popular Crossfire shooter series. This classic strategic experience is set up in the same universe and features all of the familiar traps RTS fans expect. You can control a variety of customizable units to fight a large army in a complete single player campaign or fight a human commander in online multiplayer. RTS fans hungry for new experiences that aren’t named StarCraft are potentially looking forward to Crossfire: Legion arriving next year.

Dolmen

Release Date: 2022
Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Do you enjoy dark souls and soul-like experiences? What about science fiction and cosmic horror? Dolmen may be a game for you. This action RPG equips players with melee weapons / shield combos and guns to address malicious, bug-like threats to uncover the secrets of the mysterious crystal dolmen. Combat consists of attack / parry / evasion formulas known in the sub-genre, but players can infuse elemental effects into their weapons. For example, use a cryo to slow down or freeze enemies. The soul-like game is a dime at the moment, but we look forward to seeing how the dolmens will evolve and continue to differentiate when they launch next year.

Echoes at the end

Release date: undecided
Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PC

We don’t know much about the Echoes of the End, except that the player controls Ryn, a young assassin who has the power to manipulate and destroy matter. The game is the debut title from Icelandic studio Myrkur Games and is set in a unique fantasy world inspired by scenic islands. The Echoes of the End are entirely built with Unreal Engine 5, so they can look pretty sharp. We just need to monitor to find out more about what that means.

Wrapped

Release date: September
Platform: PC

Contains a humorous RPG set in an alternative version of 1976. At the heart of everything is the dome, a mysterious structure of unknown origin filled with advanced technology. To uncover the truth, you head to and join the organization working to unravel the mystery of the dome. Players choose one of five areas (science, engineering, security, management, and prisoners) with unique expertise to help manage various aspects of the dome’s society. In the event of a disaster, you will need to work with your crew to survive and perhaps escape. The Dome is currently playable on Steam Early Access and will be released to PC in September of this year.

Final form (tentative title)

Release date undecided
Platforms: Console and PC

Earth has bitten the dust in this sci-fi first-person shooter. You control a humanoid machine called Valkyrie, which steers a perceptual spaceship to prevent a devastating pandemic from clearing human wreckage. Its mysterious premise is underpinned by a fast-paced shootout that emphasizes constant movement. If you stay still for too long, you’ll notice that it’s full of bullets in favor of a race of hostile aliens trying to dominate an unknown space. The Final Form looks a long way off, but its short gameplay teaser is getting our attention.

Gungrave Gore

Release date: undecided
Platform: undecided

Gungrave fans haven’t received the right entry since Gungrave: Overdose in 2004, but it’s finally changing at GORE. I know nothing but a short action-packed movie trailer that promises a lot of bloody action. With our fingers crossed, we will sooner or later learn more about the game.

Last Oricle

Release date: 2022
Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PC

This fascinating RPG is a combination of medieval and sci-fi trapping. Last Oricle begins when a player wakes up from cryosleep and is trapped in a medieval-like alien world. Decision Making is the name of a game that allows players to form alliances with leaders of different factions during a civil war. There is no right or wrong answer. If you select it, the result will be different. Some are good and some are not so many. Best of all, you can play The Last Oricuru alone or with your partner in drop-in / drop-out co-op to solve the puzzles needed by two players.

Painkiller

Release date: undecided
Platform: undecided

A new Painkiller game is under development, but I don’t know who is developing it or when it will come. The original Painkiller was launched in 2004 and was a supernatural first-person shooter by Outriders and Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly. We still need to keep an eye on what this sequel or reboot will look like.

Payday 3

Release date: 2023
Platforms: Console and PC

Other than revealing new concept art (posted above), little is known about Payday 3. It’s unlikely to satisfy franchise fans, but confirmation that the game still exists is always welcome.

Scars above

Release date: 2022
Platform: Console and PC

At first glance, Scars Above looks like a mix of Tomb Raider and Returnal, a blend of third-person combat and exploration. Astronaut Kateward finds himself stuck on a strange alien planet. To survive, you need to use a combination of wisdom and combat expertise. Kate protects herself with weapons such as laser machetes, flamethrowers, and even freeze guns. When things aren’t actively trying to kill you, you connect clues about the world itself and understand exactly what you’re dealing with. Developer Mad Head Games describes Scars Above as “the encounter between Alice in Wonderland and aliens.” Let’s see how the comparisons stack up at the start of next year’s game.
