'Loot River' Gets Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S And PC Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on April 20, 2022 @ 9:39 a.m. PDT

Prepare to journey down an otherworldly river in search of knowledge and loot in the island-shifting action/rogue-like Loot River.

Set in a series of procedurally-generated labyrinths, Loot River is a dungeon-crawling action-roguelike that combines the tense, real-time combat and dark fantasy stylings of Dark Souls with the spatial block-shifting puzzles of Tetris.

Armed with the power of the Relic, players can shift the ground beneath them, sliding floating ruins together in a series of tile puzzles. As players venture through these endless catacombs, they’ll encounter beasts, lost travelers, and bosses. These cosmic grottos offer a wealth of new weapons and gear to discover, as well as unholy knowledge to unearth for permanent upgrades.

Drawn to shards of an unholy relic, wandering nomads have found themselves in a perpetual cycle of life and death, losing their sanity as they journey through endless parallel realities, devouring each other to absorb the knowledge of their fellow travelers. No two journeys are ever the same as countless lost souls float through the Loot River.

straka.studio, with the support of Superhot Presents, are delighted to announce that players can finally begin exploring the abomination-filled waterways of the anticipated Loot River on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on May 3rd.

The ‘Dark Souls meets Tetris’ action roguelike will also be available to download for Xbox Game Pass subscribers on release day.

“I’m so pleased to finally announce that we will be bringing Loot River to PC and Xbox, via Xbox Game Pass, on May 3rd,” said creative director Miro Straka. “The attention the game has gotten over the last couple of years at showcases like Guerilla Collective, Day of the Devs and Xbox’s ID@XBox events has been incredible, but what I’m really looking forward to is getting the game in players’ hands!”

Key Features:

  • Beautiful hand drawn pixel art with fluid animations and real time shadows
  • Astonishing water simulation
  • Ability to control every piece of floating dungeon
  • Plenty of different abilities, items and weapons, each with unique look, animations, powers, and style
  • Procedurally generated levels

Loot River is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) on May 3, 2022.
