Playstack will publish Kumi Souls Games-developed “Soulsvania” game The Last Faith for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam when it launches in 2022, the companies announced.
“When we first met developer Kumi Souls, we were struck by just how closely and attentively the studio listens to the desires of its fanbase,” said Playstack chief executive Harvey Elliot in a press release. “That player-first approach is often a hallmark of success and it was completely unsurprising to us that The Last Faith significantly outperformed its Kickstarter target and accrues so many Wishlists on a daily basis. That drive, coupled with the engaging world The Last Faith builds, made it a no-brainer for the Playstack family.”
Here is an overview of the game, via Playstack:
With gorgeous pixel art depicting an imposing gothic landscape, as well as the ferocious monstrosities that lurk in its shadows, The Last Faith delivers brutal but empowering gameplay. It earns the ‘Soulsvania’ moniker by fusing a unique mix of Metroidvania and Soulslike elements into a powerful one-two punch.
With its rock-solid foundation of nonlinear exploration, players will discover a huge range of tools for destruction as they traverse snow-dusted mountains, deep dark forests, crypts and cities bathed in moonlight—all of which are painstakingly hand-drawn by outstanding artists who have captured the imagination of thousands of fans on Kickstarter.
Often brutal, but always empowering, The Last Faith thrives on merciless and precise combat, with a huge range of custom executions to perform. Players will unearth a formidable variety of melee weapons, arcane spells, and long-range firearms, allowing them to carve a path in their own style.
Step into The Last Faith‘s ravaged world as Eric, awakening with no recollection of his immediate past. Soon he will discover he is in a race against time as his mind and conscience begins to deteriorate in front of him. His desire for salvation from this affliction sets him on a cursed mission that crosses paths with ancient religions and divinities.
