You've lost count of how many times you've beaten Elden Ring, but while you want more of that sweet, punishing action, you also want to play something new. So, what do you do? Boot up the 2D Souls-like Moonscars, of course, releasing for PS5 and PS4 on 27th September 2022. A brand new trailer has been unveiled confirming the date, which also shows off its superb cel-shaded aesthetic.
Taking control of Grey Irma, it's your job to find the Sculptor and "unravel the mystery of her existence", according to the game's Steam page. There's then mention of its "unforgiving 2D linear world", lots of brutal challenges, and the general themes of desperation and despair. Maybe don't go into this one expecting some jolly tale of a knight rising above the darkness. "Mold yourself into a master warrior through a cycle of trial and triumph," it's explained.
Publisher Humble Games is starting to put together an interesting slate of titles for itself as we look towards the end of the year, with Signalis also being put out by the team in October as well as Midnight Fight Express. Moonscars is the very first game made by developer Black Mermaid, so it'll be interesting to see whether it lands or not.
