The upcoming Hack n’ Slash title, R.A.W, from Wizarbox and Focus Home Interactive is looking like a pretty sweet download title to us. The RPG set against a background of a land ravaged by a war which has left the Human, Elven and Dwarven kingdoms ravaged and at the mercy of bandits and other nefarious types will be making it’s way to the PSN and XBLA during the 2nd quarter of this year.
The gameplay is a top down kill everything in sight affair, with some similarities to Diablo, but this title may offer gamers something a little different than what Blizzard has in store for us. With graphics which are reminiscent of last years side scrolling platformer Trine 2, RAW is certainly a very pretty looking game and this latest trailer gives us an idea of what the Wizard class has to offer.
Although the Wizard may not be the best at running head long into hordes of enemies and getting hit in the face, he does have incredibly strong spells at his disposal as he bends the forces of nature to “unleash lightning, torrents of flames, tornadoes and waves of pure energy”.
We are quite impressed by the potential this release has to offer and will be sure to bring you further news ahead of it’s arrival. In the mean time be sure to check out the trailer below and feast that part of your brain that loves shiny things on some of the screenshots which should be enough to get even the most jaded of hack n’ slasher excited.
