Over the weekend at the PlayStation Experience Keynote, Drinkbox Studios were able to reveal Severed for the first time. Today, the Toronto-based team at Drinkbox confirmed that their upcoming touch based game will be an exclusive to the PlayStation Vita.
Severed is a strange world which is filled with “ghastly enemies, including three-headed constellations, six-armed swordmasters and beasts made of crows”. Using touch controls, players will take control of a one-armed female character. The heroine uses a living sword as her preferred choice of weapon, which helps her regain pieces of her past and future.
As players set out into combat, they’ll be engaging their foes in first-person view and using a touch based combat system. Along the way, while unlocking secrets of this mysterious world, players will have the chance to earn new abilities as well offensive and defensive strategies.
“DrinkBox has a strong relationship working with Sony and we felt Severed’s combat and exploration mechanics were a perfect match for the Vita,” said Graham Smith, Co-Founder of DrinkBox Studios. “We hope Vita gamers will fall in love exploring Severed’s uncanny world through our gameplay just like they have with our previous games.”
Severed is an exclusive title for the PlayStation Vita and will be released in the Spring of 2015.
