The isometric dungeon crawler action-RPG is a genre that has stood the test of time and the upcoming Endless Dungeon looks to carry on the tradition. A world premiere gameplay trailer for Endless Dungeon was shown at Summer Game Fest 2021, showing a taste of what players can expect. With a release date of to be announced, Endless Dungeon from AMPLITUDE Studios and SEGA is set to launch on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4/PS5, and Xbox One/Series consoles.
AMPLITUDE Studios has been crafting Endless adventures for some time with 4X strategy games Endless Space and Endless Legend, and roguelikes with Dungeon of the Endless. Now it's time to give isometric dungeon crawling a try with Endless Dungeon. Officially revealed just over six months ago at The Game Awards 2020, Geoff Keighley gives us another look at the game with a world premiere gameplay trailer during Summer Game Fest 2021.
This new trailer for Endless Dungeon has gratuitous gameplay shown as tips and tricks from the characters in the game. The first tip reveals that weapons will have different types that can be more or less effective against certain enemies. This is nothing new for dungeon crawlers or isometric twin-stick shooters, but it's nice to see some depth to the action from the outset. Akin to their previous title, Dungeons of the Endless, the second segment details a sort of tower defense layer to the game. A crystal that attracts enemies must be defended at all costs and the player can utilize turrets for assistance.
The remaining moments encourage viewers to keep track of their squad as defeating the horde of alien enemies yourself is very unlikely. In the event of squad wipes, it appears that adaptation will be key in defending the endless dungeon. No release date for Endless Dungeon was shown today but it is planned for all current consoles and PC. Keep an eye on Shacknews for any future developments on Endless Dungeon or for more Summer Game Fest 2021 announcements.
