Flintlock The Siege Of Dawn: Release Date, Trailers, Gameplay, And More
Back in March 2022, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn was revealed with a moody cinematic trailer that introduced us to the game's mysterious world of gunpowder and magic. Flintlock is an action role-playing game from developer A44 Games, that is set to see you challenge the gods and their armies in a tale of vengeance. It seems like a promising title so far that has the potential to make for a surprise hit, so if you're looking forward to Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn, here's everything we know about it so far.
Flintlock The Siege Of Dawn Release Date
The game is set to launch in early 2023, likely placing it in the first quarter of the year. We can also assume it will hit whatever date that A44 eventually settles on, as the game was initially supposed to release in 2022, meaning it's had extra development time.
Flintlock The Siege Of Dawn Trailers
The first trailer for the game was its reveal back in March 2022. It was a fairly straightforward cinematic trailer that set the mood for the game, and introduced some of the key aspects of the game, such as the focus on combat that mixes melee, guns, and magic together. The trailer shows an unnamed woman and her pet, as they walk through the trenches of a battlefield, before running into some undead soldiers.
The game's second trailer and subsequent info dump by the developers gave us a much better look at the game by showcasing actual gameplay, and explaining what the experience will be about. This trailer dropped during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase for 2022, and starts with narration from the main character that sets up the major conflict of the game, the people vs the gods. It also explored various locations across the game's open world, highlighting the sandy deserts, gloomy swamps, and a large city that looked to be inspired by architecture from North Africa during late antiquity.
Flintlock The Siege Of Dawn Gameplay
Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn plays from a third-person perspective and features fast-paced combat that allows you to mix up moves from your arsenal of melee weapons and ranged guns, while utilising the magical abilities of your animal companion Enki. The gameplay reveal trailer showed that Enki's magic had some functions outside combat too - allowing you to fly into the air at one point - and the player character of Nor has her own flair for the acrobatic, allowing her to flip out of the way of attacks. The game is set to feature a large open world with many areas, so Enki seems key to traversing much of the environment quickly.
