Gearbox Publishing will publish Rogue Snail-developed free-to-play top-down looter-shooter Relic Hunters Legend, the companies announced. It will be available for PC via Steam. A release date was not announced.
“It was here at PAX East, almost two years ago to the day when we started conversations with Gearbox—now we’re unveiling our partnership to the world, and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Rogue Snail CEO and Relic Hunters Legend creative director Mark Venturelli in a press release. “We’ll have a lot more to share on Relic Hunters Legend soon and how everyone can get involved.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Relic Hunters Legend is an in-development free-to-play online looter-shooter RPG featuring exciting, fast-paced gameplay, a ton of powerful equipment and weapons with tons more customizable options, and a cast of rowdy rebels with different skills and abilities that you can fine tune to match your playing style!
Relic Hunters Legend is free because it allows for more people, all around the world, to enjoy the game. Our goal is to make a good game, with a fair monetization system, that can make money and be sustainable without exploitative practices. We believe that free-to-play games can be fun and fair for everyone! So come dive into an epic adventure with the Relic Hunters to recover lost Relics and “Duck, Duck, Loot” some Ducans!
The evil duck, Duke Ducan, has somehow stolen the past and tells everyone that he is responsible for everything good that has ever happened – providing legitimacy to his oppressive galactic regime.
The Relic Hunters, led by Pinkyy, travel around the Galaxy looking for ancient ruins and Relics of the old civilization, trying to restore the memory of the true Past. In this journey, the crew meets a mysterious ally: Seven, who has no memories and the strange ability to travel back and forth through time.
