Chronos: Before the Ashes

Publisher THQ Nordic and developer Gunfire Games have announced Chronos: Before the Ashes for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Stadia. It will launch on December 1.

While the publisher did release a description for the game, it was rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board back in August 2019. Here is the rating description:

This is an action role-playing game in which players assume the role of a fighter trying to save a land from a great evil. From a third-person perspective, players can explore an ancient labyrinth while battling fantastical enemies (e.g., goblins, stone monsters, minotaur) in melee combat. Characters fight using swords, spears, and clubs. Combat is highlighted by impact sounds, light effects, and cries of pain. Enemies emit small splashes of blood when struck, and some levels depict pools of blood on the ground. The word “bastard” appears in game text.

Chronos first launched for Oculus Rift in March 2016. At this point, it is uncertain if Chronos: Before the Ashes is a non-virtual reality edition of the 2016-released game, or a new entry in the series entirely.
