A new game announced at E3, Soulstice, allows you to control two players at once – combining their moves to reclaim a lost city.
Modus Games made the announcement during E3’s PC Gaming Show, launching a new gameplay trailer with footage from the alpha build. Soulstice hinges on a unique fighting style that blends two characters’ moves together for a powerful attack.
Controlling sisters Briar and Lute, the player must attempt to battle enemies to reclaim a fallen city as a Chimera – a hybrid of two souls. The Soulstice trailer shows their dual combat style in action, with one using the other to strengthen their attacks.
“When the city of Ilden falls to the invasion of the Wraiths,” reveals the Soulstice website, “The two sisters are sent on a mission to reclaim it. Only by utilising the abilities of both characters will players unlock their full potential and stop the invasion before it’s too late”
Soulstice is described as a “sleek, fantasy-inspired world” with places “filled with danger and beauty”. The main focus of the game at this stage appears to be the unique dual combat system, incorporating multiple weapons, combos, and customisations.
