Immortal: Unchained PC Alpha Coming In March; New Trailer Out Now

PC gamers will get their first chance to play Immortal: Unchained in March during a newly announced (and Steam-exclusive) closed alpha. Participation isn’t guaranteed, but a new trailer for the upcoming “hardcore action-RPG” should help fill some of the downtime while we wait for Immortal: Unchained to hit PC and consoles.

ID casts players as a being of immense power -- the studio describes its protagonist as “the ultimate weapon” on Steam -- freed after thousands of years of incarceration. Unlike the games it draws inspiration from, Immortal: Unchained won’t ask players to become masters of melee combat. Instead, you’ll wield an assortment of firearms, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. It also ditches the medieval trappings of Dark Souls for something a bit more futuristic, though the project shares an emphasis on larger-than-life boss battles. You’ll just be shooting at them instead of looking for the right opportunity to slash or stab your enemies.

According to a new press release from publisher Sold Out and developer Toadman Interactive, some PC gamers will get access to a partial build of Immortal: Unchained in March. Testers will explore two areas and to our surprise won’t be subject to non-disclosure agreements. Toadman is actually encouraging participants to share their feedback on the game’s Steam page and their preferred social networks. Anyone interested in the closed alpha can register on the Immortal: Unchained website but not everyone will receive a key. The closed alpha will be available March 8-12. There’s no word on if/when we can expect a similar test for the console versions of ID.

For a closer look at Immortal: Unchained, while you wait/hope for an invite to the closed alpha, check out the new gameplay trailer from Sold Out and Toadman Interactive.

Immortal: Unchained is expected to debut on PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2018.
