The development team behind the upcoming exploration adventure title, Jotun, have released a new trailer to celebrate the impending alpha launch for the game. According to the timer on the game’s official website, the alpha will be available in about two days time.
We haven’t followed Jotun too closely until now, so for those of you that are just now learning about the game, here’s a short description from the game’s website:
In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must face the challenges of Viking purgatory to prove herself to the Gods and enter Valhalla.
Jotun‘s core loop revolves around collecting Runes to summon and fight the jotun, gigantic Norse elementals. The game focuses on the balance between atmospheric exploration and ferocious combat. Imagine the mysterious romantic mood of Journey mixed with the scale of the boss fights in Shadow of the Colossus in top-down 2D.
The combat in Jotun is fast-paced and brutally hard. Using only your massive two-handed axe, you take on foes that are hundreds of times your size. Every hit from a jotun’s attack will take out a huge chunk of your health.
We’ll see about getting access to the game’s alpha to bring you some hands-on impressions of the game, so stay tuned to OnlySP by following us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest.
