Necropolis shows off its cooperative dungeon crawling in a funky new trailer


Shadowrun Returns developer Harebrained Schemes have just released a new trailer for Necropolis, their upcoming third-person action adventure and dungeon crawling hybrid.

Harebrained Schemes’ very own Shadowrun: Hong Kong made its way into our list of the best RPGs on PC.

Necropolis is a stylised mix of third-person action and roguelike dungeon-delving, a bit like Diablo if it felt like you were swinging your sword and dodging attacks.

“You play as a nameless adventurer attempting to escape a living, magical dungeon that reconstructs itself each time you play, with only one way out – down,” says the Steam blurb. “Craft, equip, explore, and fight to stay alive as you delve deeper and face ever-greater threats in the twisting halls and endless chasms of the Necropolis. Have no doubt, you’re going to die – often! – but you’ll improve your combat skills, available upgrades, and dungeon know-how with every playthrough, bringing you one step closer to the exit.”

If it’s like a 3D Rogue Legacy with co-op I am so on board. Have a watch of the new co-op trailer and see what you think:

It’s coming out this summer and will set you back£22.99. Pre-orders also net the game’s soundtrack when it releases.
