Paradox International Announces Two New Titles

By Cindy Minguez,
We have more game reveals coming out Gamescom 2014. Paradox Interactive announced two new games that it's bringing to the PS4 platform: Hollowpoint and https://www.truetrophies.com/Runemaster/trophies.htm. The first is an action title centered around co-op combat while the second is a tactical RPG inspired by Norse mythology. Though only a single piece of artwork was released for each game, Paradox has been kind enough to give us trailers for both.



Hollowpoint puts players in charge of secretive Organizations of corporate mercenaries, taking on missions for pay and prestige alongside three other players in online co-op. Developed by Ruffian Games, the team behind Crackdown 2, Hollowpoint brings classic 2D side-scrolling action into the next generation with seamless 3D targeting into stages’ backgrounds. Hollowpoint features:

Old School Meets Near-future: Hollowpoint is played in a blend of traditional 2D side-scrolling action with 3D targeting, challenging players to take down enemies in front of them as well as in the background of their surroundings

Plan and Execute: Each mission is procedurally generated along with objectives, level layouts, and events, requiring a mix of strategic planning and skillful action to complete – no mission is merely “routine”

Organisation, Corporation, and Cooperation: Team up with friends via Steam or PSN and take on contracts together, handling your personal Operatives to succeed – or fail – together

Upgrade and Adapt: Earn experience and skill points to upgrade Operatives, and outfit them with the right abilities, weapons, and equipment for the job

Runemaster
From Chaos Rises a Norse Legend

With Runemaster, Paradox Development Studio invites you to a fantasy realm etched in the rich history of Norse mythology.

Description

In this tactical RPG, you are a hero in a time of chaotic upheaval. Explore the six worlds of Norse mythology, amass your forces and vanquish your enemies on the battlefield in the name of your chosen God. Will you choose to enforce change for those that crave it or will you seek to maintain the status quo - for better or worse?

You, alone can determine the fate of the world.
You, alone are the master of your own saga.

Features

Vast vistas to explore: Wander the six worlds of Norse myth, from the lofty forests of Midgard to the fires of Muspelheim. Each time you start a new campaign, the world is procedurally generated to ensure each adventure is a venture into the exciting and unknown.

Rich tactical combat: Recruit and command an expansive range of units with unique abilities. Learn to use your troops – and the terrain of the battlefield – to crush your enemies.

Immersive story: The game’s procedural quest system will take note of your deeds and challenge you accordingly. No two playthroughs will ever be the same.


Both Hollowpoint and Runemaster are expected sometime in 2015.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Hollowpoint trophies.
