There’s a new RPG on the horizon but you won’t be playing it on PS4 anytime soon. Well, you won’t be playing it on PS4 at all, actually, as it’s only in development for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
The game is called Soulborn and it’s an RPG inspired by Norse mythology. You play as Brynjar Townshiled, a Souldborn demigod who also owns the most powerful weapon of all nine worlds: Mjölnir. Yes, the same magical bit of kit that Thor uses in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to kick arse.
Mjölnir can transform into a sword, box, or its original form as the legendary, mythical hammer, and it’s your best tool to help vanquish the soul-devouring beast Nidhöggr who is intent on destroying Midgard.
It’s an interesting concept, but it’s far more impressive when you see it in action. The developer, Pixelman Studios from Magdeburg (about an hour away from my house, actually) has released a new trailer showing the game off, and it really does look impressive, especially when you consider the size of the studio behind it.
