Metroidvania style games are all the rage these days and ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights is a new one coming to consoles later this month.
Binary Haze Interactive has announced today that its upcoming dark-fantasy Metroidvania game ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights will be releasing on July 20th, 2021 for PS4 and PS5, with the PS5 playing the game via backwards compatibility.
The game has already been out for a while on Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch, so the PlayStation edition will release with all of the updates and content that has been released thus far.
What is ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights?
A cursed rain scourges the once-hallowed kingdom of Land’s End. As the perpetual downpour plagues the population, turning the peaceful people into twisted undead creatures, the priestess Lily awakens from her slumber in Land’s End’s great Cathedral. Steeled by the tragedy befalling her hometown, Lily begins a dangerous journey to seek out and stop the source of the mysterious rain.
Guide Lily on a quest as she fights those she once held dear, as former friends stalk Land’s End as wicked shells of themselves. But no soul is too far gone for saving. Face Lily’s reincarnated friends, defeat them in combat, and perform an exorcism to reawaken their souls and bring them into the fold as equippable companion spirits to aid in future trials.
Experiment with different souls to create a variety of reliable allies and valuable abilities. Call upon a stalwart bodyguard to tank hits and keep the priestess safe, summon ethereal volleys of damaging attacks, or create myriad skills that make traversing Land’s End more manageable.
Advance through the dark kingdom, traversing mysterious ruins housing forgotten relics, weaving through oppressive forests holding untold secrets, ascending the kingdom’s grand castle on a search for the source of the endless rain.
ENDER LILIES’ haunting world comes to life through breathtaking hand-drawn 2D art evoking a Japanese dark-fantasy aesthetic.
“ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights carries on the rich legacy of dark fantasy,” said Hiroyuki Kobayashi, CEO, Binary Haze Interactive. “Lily’s journey through the fallen kingdom of Land’s End captures the essence of the genre while expanding on it with a detailed world full of memorable characters, stories, and surprises.”
