When something’s popular you can count on copy-cats, and Egress is a shining example of that. Described as a “role-playing battle royale with intense hardcore Souls-like combat system”, the Fazan Games developed title clearly has no shame. It’s due out in 2018 on the PlayStation 4, and promises an alternate universe setting, “combining the Victorian era, Lovecraft’s mythology, and Retrowave”.

There’ll apparently be solo and team-based modes, and the combat system will focus on “melee attacks and dodges, ability combinations, as well as [the] strengths and weaknesses of characters, their roles, and equipment”. We suppose it’s not the worst idea in the world, but it does sound a little bit shameless, doesn’t it? After all, this title’s basically a hodgepodge of everything that’s popular in the industry right now.
