Wrath: Aeon Of Ruin is another upcoming FPS from 3D Realms. Developed by KillPixel, the game utilizes the legendary Quake 1 engine. And judging by what we’ve seen so far by the early access demo, it pushes the Quake engine further than you could imagine. For using tech from 1996, the game is insanely impressive looking.
The game entered early access last year and already saw its first major content update. And sticking to the roadmap, the second update just launched.
The new update adds a bunch of new stuff to the game. Here’s a list of some of the stuff added in the new update:
- New level: “The Priory”
- Enemy: “The Oppressor”
- Weapon: “The Slag Cannon”
- Item: “The Sigil Of Flight”
- SDL2 version of Game Client
- Cumulative damage system to enemy pain states
- Option for screen flash when picking up items
- Refresh rate options
- “Always Run” option
- “Toggle Run” option
You can find a complete list of bug fixes and other changes in the official changelog.
Physical Big Box Release
Like with 3D Realms’ previous game Ion Fury, Wrath is getting a proper big box release. The big box can already be preordered at the game’s official website. Only 500 copies are made, so you better hurry if you wish to secure a copy of this collectible edition for yourself.
The Founders Edition Big Box contains the following items:
- The game on a CD-ROM
- “The Art Of Wrath” art book
- Original Soundtrack by Andrew Hulshult
- 5 metal enemy figurines
- Reversible poster
- USB drive containing exclusive digital content
- Exclusive stickers
A regular big box edition will be released later. Though if you wish to secure the exclusive stuff in the Founders Edition, you better act fast. As of writing, only around 150 copies are left for grabs.
Final Release Date
In addition to the content update and the Founders Edition, 3D Realms announced the game’s final release date. The full game will be released on 25th of February 2021. So likely that’s when the Founders Edition Big Box will be shipped out.
If you don’t wanna wait that long, you can check out the game’s early access version on Steam and GOG. This version already features several levels and offers quite a hefty amount of play time. And we highly recommend checking it out if you want an idea what Wrath is like.
