It features a dark fantasy universe that also follows along with the Souls genre, and mixes in some flair from A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin.

This will create an epic, powerful, and violent gameplay experience for players, where skill is the only separator from success and crushing defeat navigating challenging fights and bosses.
