Total conversion modes are not so popular in the gaming world. First, they need a team to create it. Second, nobody knows if they are even commercial or potentially lucrative.
But when you have Starcraft 2 as your role-model and if you celebrate Starcraft’s 20th anniversary, then you have really good grounds for the project. Dead Zone – Hope Lost is something completely different and most ambitious project if you compare it with RPG’s, TPS or total re-creations. Survival horror with 25 chapters, 5 different endings, and huge worlds is built in Legacy of the Void, the standalone Blizzard expansion.
The demo is available even now but the full game will be out at the end of this calendar year. A report says that it’s about ‘isometric combat in claustrophobic corridors’.
Players will have around 10 weapons to choose from, each of which will have a fair few modifications. From the sounds of it, stealth kills will be your friend, and you’ll be encouraged to fight only when you have no choice. Monsters will hunt during the night, move dynamically around the world, and get tired over time.
We are waiting…
