Earlier this year, we reported about a closed door meeting where we got to see Cygames’ Project Awakening for the first time. Ahead of TGS this year, Cygames has released a trailer for the action RPG title that we saw for the first time at E3, and it looks even more impressive than it did then.
The trailer shows a fantasy knight fighting a scaled beast inside a coliseum, preceded by a voice over booming platitudes in an echoed wave. The fight scenes are intercut by other cutscenes from the game and the trailer ends with the main character standing in front of a mist-filled horizon where shadows of giant armored enemies slowly approach.
Details are sparse about the game, but a previous listing of the game’s staff showed talent from games like Metal Gear Solid V included. While the game has been announced for PlayStation 4, I have my suspicions after seeing it in person that PS4 would be ambitious at best.
Project Awakening currently has no publicly known target date.
