You can now sign up to Beta test Dread Templar, an excellent new retro FPS inspired by 90s classics, where you blast your way into Hell in search of vengeance!
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer when it was called Hell Hunt, Dread Templar is a glorious blood-splattered love letter to the 90’s run ‘n gun first person shooter. In the game you step into the shoes of a very angry Dread Templar who is seeking vengeance against someone (or something) deep within the pits of hell.
As you blast your way the hordes of Hell you collect an arsenal of powerful weaponry, all of which seems designed to cause demons to explode into sprays of blood and meaty chunks. One particularly enjoyable weapon is your katana swords which can be used up close and personal or combined and thrown like a spear (to devastating effect). You’ll be able to customize your weapons to suit your playstyle and you can unlock powerful Dread Powers that will really make you a force to be reckoned with.
The gameplay in Dread Templar is fast and fluid, the levels are well designed with puzzles and secrets to discover, and it’s extremely satisfying blasting your way through the demon hordes. There may be lots of nasty looking demons that you come across, but Dread Templar really makes you feel like you are the scariest thing in Hell. The Beta is live now and will run until the 15th of July so jump in now for a Hell of a good time!
