The much-anticipated action RPG Last Epoch, developed by indie studio Eleventh Hour Games, has officially announced its release date set for February 21. This marks a significant milestone for a game that has evolved from a Reddit post into a major success story, with over a million copies sold during its early access phase on Steam.
Last Epoch has captivated gamers with its unique blend of time travel, dungeon crawling, and character customization. Players are transported through the world of Eterra’s past, where they encounter dark empires, face wrathful gods, and battle to save time from the ominous Void. The game’s storyline, coupled with its immersive world, was showcased in the launch trailer, highlighting the diverse character classes and combat mechanics that have contributed to its popularity.
With its focus on endless replayability, Last Epoch offers players the choice between five distinct classes, further expandable into 15 Mastery Classes. The game features an intricate system of over 100 skill trees, each with its augment tree. This complexity is matched by a robust crafting system and a randomized loot system that keeps players engaged in their quest for the rarest items.
A standout feature of Last Epoch is its commitment to fair play, promising that gameplay advantages will never be sold for real money. This approach resonates well with the gaming community, advocating for an equitable gaming experience.
Three versions of the game are available for pre-order. The standard edition, priced at $34.99, includes the exclusive Golden Guppy pet. The Deluxe Edition, at $49.99, offers additional perks such as the game soundtrack, Epoch Points, and various cosmetic items. For the ultimate experience, the Ultimate Edition is priced at $64.99, bundling all Deluxe Edition contents with additional Epoch Points and exclusive cosmetic sets.
For existing players, there is an option to upgrade to the Deluxe or Ultimate Editions on Steam. Additionally, as part of a launch week celebration from February 22, players can earn free loot through Twitch Drops, with a detailed list of available items including various cosmetic back slot items and pet cosmetics.
