Project Awakening, the elusive fantasy action RPG that many believe in will follow the fate of Deep Down, still not canceled. For the first time in three years, the team at Cygames has revealed some new engine footage, giving a fresh look at the game’s rather impressive visuals.
Originally announced as Playstation 4 title back in 2018, Project Awakening (still an active title) suddenly appeared during the recent Cygames Tech Conference live stream (via Twinfinite). The studio is using its own custom Cyllista Game Engine for the game, which may explain the long development cycle and extremely rare updates over the past few years.
However, the good thing is that the new engine delivers very promising graphics – if you can still be surprised by such things in modern games. In the video, the team shows a highly detailed environment with rich and dense foliage, natural light, and a breathtaking draw distance – check out the new footage below.
Unfortunately, since it’s just a technical showcase dedicated to developer rendering techniques and rendering engines, there are no new details about Project Awakening itself.
From what we’ve seen, Project Awakening looks like a mix between Monster hunter and Dragon dogma, affected by FromSoftwaregames are like souls – and there are dragons in them. Simply put, it’s a third-person action killer with nasty bosses, intense and realistic sword fights, and a beautifully crafted open world environment. The creators have also teased some co-op multiplayer aspects for Project Awakening, with the idea of supporting up to 12 players in a single session.
Judging by its fancy looks and three years of silence since its initial announcement, Project Awakening is presumably targeting the PS5 right now, though it’s yet to be officially confirmed. However, back in 2019, producer Kenichiro Takaki hinted at The game may launch as a PlayStation 5 title if the growth is prolonged.
Project Awakening is currently in development and there are no updates on the target platform or release date as of now, so players better be prepared to wait a few more years for the fascinating game to launch.
Another day, another strange reason that Amouranth reported.
