I Can't Believe It's Not Hexen Again

Amid Evil is an FPS with its fair share of mystical worldsworlds filled with enemies that want to kill you. With a recent announcement during Realms Deep 2020, it looks like players will have a chance to experience another devious realm with Amid Evil's Black Labyrinth.

Today, we got to see our first look at a new area in Amid Evil. It's a full "prequel expansion," so the Black Labyrinth looks to provide a helping of new content. The protagonist, dubbed the Champion, is armed with a brand new weapon in the trailer, which looks like some kind of sharp scythe. While we don't get to see just how this new scythe is used, it'll probably be as visceral as the signature axe from Amid Evil.

 
 

As for the Black Labyrinth itself, there are new areas separate from the main game. Curiously, it looks like an area that comprises elements from all other chapters from the game, including the Astral Equinox and The Sacred Path. As a note note, the main melee weapon used in Amid Evil is called the Axe of the Black Labyrinth, so it's possible players will receive some lore behind this brutal bringer of death.

Amid Evil is a retro FPS heavily inspired by classics like Hexen. Players are armed with various mystical weapons like a staff that shoots damaging spells and a trident that lets out a deadly stream of electricity. This title features seven episodes total, each with a distinct theme. Amid Evil also has a survival mode where you can tackle waves of enemies. Developed by Indefatigable and published by New Blood Interactive, there is no release date for Amid Evil's Black Labyrinth yet. When it releases, we'll keep you informed.
