Developer A44 Games (Ashen) and publisher Kepler Interactive (Cat Quest III) are coming together for what could be one of the biggest hits of the summer: Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn.

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn‘s four-word elevator pitch is “explosive indie Souls-lite”. Set in the world of Kian, disaster strikes as the Door to the Great Below has been opened and now the Gods and their armies of the Dead are loose. Players take control of Nor Vanek, an elite member of the Coalition army. Aided by her mysterious companion, Enki, Nor embarks on an epic journey to make amends and reseal the Gods to save humanity.

You know the drill by now: check out the Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn trailer from this weekend, overview details (via the game’s official website), and key screenshots below.

  • Music lovers can already check out “Rammuha” from the OST.

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn will launch globally on July 18th for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store). Special note for Steam users: the base game and the deluxe edition are 10% off until July 25th.

He discovered the RPGFan community a couple of years ago and, after growing up in Western Canada as a "jock," was thrilled to realize that there were others in the world who learned roman numerals as a teenager thanks to the Final Fantasy series. Contributing to the news team is his main objective at the site and it is his goal to project the confidence of Ron Burgundy while keeping everyone from realizing he might just be Brick Tamland.
