CyGames is initially a mobile games developer but now has announced a brand new PS4 exclusive game titled Project Awakening. A new trailer has been released and from a prominently a mobile games developer we could have quite a promising title on our hands.
Diving straight into the trailer, we are introduced to a world that seems much like Monster Hunter and even has some resemblance to Shadow of Colossus enemy wise. Narration wise, we seem to be beginning our story off at the end of the "era of never-ending peace" and that "It's time for we wolves of war to awaken..." As there really isn't any context for what the RPG is going to be like, my personal synopsis from the trailer is that "the wolves" are a group of what seems to be knights that are trained to take down these massive colossal beasts.
Looking towards the crescent on the shield, we can see a sword going through a dragon, which I think that would suggest that this would be the symbol of beast slaying. I think that this would reinforce my theory towards the character we see in the trailer being apart of the group of "wolves." Combat wise, we see fast paced, dodge, roll, kiting boss like fighting. When the beast connects with our hero the substantial knock back from the sheer power can be seen while he blocks, but when he doesn't he is hurdled through the air, quite a interesting mechanic. The trailer ends with our hero seeing the silhouettes of much larger enemies in the distance, these enemies are so big that it can be assumed that we are going to need much more than just a sword to bring them down.
Project Awakening currently doesn't have a release date, but we do know that the title will be a PS4 exclusive.
