Skara The Blade Remains video

Skara The Blade Remains is a Free 2 Play under development whose ambition is to propose the first ever Multiplayer Online Versus game with a rich background worthy of a real RPG. You'll find more details about 8-Bit-Studio's title on the game's Kickstarter page, but we had a chance to try it ourselves and the April build we played is not really convincing yet. Graphics-wise, Skara looks great even though the 10 people team has just been working with Unreal Engine 4 for 8 months. Gameplay on the other hand is too clunky and slow at this stage to get us excited, but if the developers manage to make the combat system more dynamic and responsive, it might be worth checking out later. A new build should be available soon, so hopefully we'll see some improvements over the one we played. For now, make sure to watch the video we captured as it shows the two arenas which are available in the game at the moment.

Hope they improve the character animations because they're right out of 2001. Some cloth physics would also be a good idea.

Graphically not too bad at all, but yeah those character animations are pretty damn sad, lol.

    Megido @Sdarts: i tjink ive been pretty consistent in saying the books are better than the games. I dont know why you even directed that at me :) (3 Hours ago)

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (7 Hours ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (7 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (7 Hours ago)
