Omen of Sorrow

AOne Games will showcase Omen of Sorrow, its upcoming PlayStation 4 fighting game featuring characters inspired by classic horror, at Evolution 2017, the developer announced.

The playable demo, which will be available at booth #110, will feature previously revealed characters Caleb and Gabriel, an updated version of vampire character Vladislav, and new character Zafkiel. Attendees will be able to try out the game’s mechanics and test out the combat engine on its latest iteration.

“A fighting game engine has very specific and strict needs, that need to be solved in order to deliver a top quality experience the community has come to expect,” combat designer Felipe Muñoz said in a press release. “To have a constant 60 fps framerate, deterministic physics and consistent collisions has allowed us to develop a precise and fast paced gameplay we strived for.”

Muñoz continued, “We’ve got the certainty that players will enjoy what we’ll show at EVO, our next challenge is to finalize our custom matchmaking server to avoid the problems other fighting game titles have suffered. Fortunately Microsoft Azure has placed their trust upon us, so we’ll be able to use their global infrastructure to provide a superior quality experience.”
