Remember during last year's E3, Koch Media announced a whole new publishing label? That publisher is Prime Matter, and it has all kinds of interesting games in the works. One of these is Dolmen, an action RPG set on a hostile alien planet named Revion Prime.
You'll be able to wield guns as well as melee weapons in this intriguing title as you search for the titular Dolmen, a crystal that holds the key to interdimensional travel. We're getting a Souls in space sort of vibe from the new trailer (above), which also tells us the release date. You'll be facing off against nasty looking alien baddies from 20th May on both PlayStation 5 and PS4.
There's not a whole lot of info to get into right now. It does seem influenced by FromSoftware's work, pitting you against a harsh world and its powerful inhabitants. You'll be able to swap between melee and ranged at any point, and an Energy Mode imbues your weapons with elemental effects, which seems like a cool wrinkle.
We're certainly intrigued, but what do you think of Dolmen? Will you be attempting to best Revion Prime and its (probably) horrible beasts? Tell us in the comments section below.
Looks ok... I'm more likely to get Forspoken at the time though
Sci-Fi RPG ✔
Souls like ❌
Another space souls game that no one talks about is hellpoint. It has a great level design (with intricate platforming puzzles that hide good loot), was surprised by how good it is.
Brought it initially for split-screen, even though the fps is a steady 20 (not a typo) I had a lot of fun on my ps4 slim.
Yeah been following this for a while, looks cool. If I could enjoy Immortal Unchained I’m sure I’ll enjoy this.
At this stage it's hard to be anything but neautral in reaction to these sort of games, trailers do little to sway opinion.
Elden Ring <3 Not excited for anything else atm.
First time hearing about this game. Nothing too spectacular about that trailer. We'll have to wait and see what it is like to play.
The industry needs to stop with these souls like games
I am following this game for a while and it looks fun . It seems like a mix of Bloodborne and Mass Effect and has a lovecraftian vibe that is interesting for me.
I loved Surge 2. Souls + sci-fi is right up my alley. Consider me intrigued.
Is this 3p co-op like Remnant: From the Ashes?
@lolwhatno Yeah I was getting some Hellpoint vibes too... great game!
Glad I played it on PC then, had a steady 60fps and no problems.
More interested in The Last Oricru. Same publisher, souls like (with story difficulty option), deep story, medieval/sci fi
Sci-fi RPG and Souls-like has me intrigued, but as for pre-ordering? Those days are GONE for me unless it's a 'known quantity' like God Of War, Dead Space, Crysis, BioShock, etc. where I basically know the quality I'm getting into based on past experiences.
In Swedish, ”dolme” is slang for penis.
So it's the Dark Souls bloke in spaceman outfits? I'm in.
@velio84 Damn beat me to it 😂
Welp, my original comment just aged badly…
@Voltan WHAT DID YOU DO?!
@MFTWrecks Wasn’t me, I swear!
Voltan: "I'm more likely to get Forspoken at the time though."
Squeenix: "Hold my beer..."
Another Souls-like game...?
Hmmmm watched some gameplay and well it is not good imo.
Looks like a warframe knock off
