Gord has been confirmed for a PS5 release this summer. The dark fantasy title caught the eye last year when it was announced for a 2023 PC launch, and now it's coming to Sony's current-gen system as well.
Inspired by Slavic folklore — the creepy kind — it's a horror-tinged strategy RPG where you need to keep evil at bay. "Grow your gord from humble settlement to formidable fortress while protecting your citizens from invading tribes, gruesome monsters, and mysterious powers that lurk within the surrounding woods," reads the press release.
To make survival even more demanding, your tribespeople come with a sanity meter. Deaths, illness, and other afflictions can have a devastating effect on morale, making your villagers easy prey for monsters. It all sounds suitably horrible, doesn't it?
What's more, the title features a lot of procedurally generated gameplay. "Take on a wide variety of quests and random encounters that will lead you deep into the wilderness to hunt legendary creatures, uncover ancient secrets, and vanquish deadly scourges," the press release continues. You can even create your own custom scenarios.
