Gord is a city-builder with survival elements that has players as the leader of the Tribe of the Dawn as they migrate into forbidden lands. There will be an AI-driven quest system that will ensure that players encounter legendary creatures, uncover secrets, and vanquish a "nasty scourge." There also will be sanity and burden systems that will impact your villagers through illness, hunger, and the death of their kin. It all sounds pretty cool, so let's check out the trailer:

The developers of the game, Covenant, are a new Polish game studio founded by former CD PROJEKT RED and 11 bit studios producer Stan Just. This is their first game, and judging by the trailer it looks pretty polished for a first time effort. Gord is inspired by Slavic folklore, which is pretty neat. It should be something different from the traditional fairy tales that creators are inspired by.

As for what else is in the game, there will be spells that you can unleash, both defensive and offensive. To do so you must please the Gods by prayers, so you'll have to pray pretty hard if you want to have a few extra tricks up your sleeve.

There will also be The Chronicle that will be scattered throughout the game that will explain the history of the Gord universe. The more that's collected the more players will understand the origins of the Gods, ancient factions, and the Whisperers, who presumably speak softly and carry a big stick.

Gord will be launching on PC sometime in 2022.

For those who are interested in Gord you can check it out the official Gord website and the Steam page. If you're really interested there's also Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Discord pages for you to haunt. For all things Gord, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
