It has been slightly more than a year since we last experienced the bliss of Amid Evil. The consistent surprise of each level in this Heretic-style retro fantasy roleplaying shooter, the pure gameplay, and challenging bosses made for a game that looked retro, but was modern in every other way. Amid Evil was also a substantial journey, enough to entertain for hours. However, if you were craving for more, your prayers have been answered. A new prequel chapter, Amid Evil: The Black Labyrinth, has been announced with a teaser trailer.
New Blood Interactive and Indefatigable are not pulling any punches with this new expansion. Amid Evil: The Black Labyrinth will feature new worlds, new enemies, and of course, insane new weapons. The brutal and adaptive enemy AI will be back in new forms to take on the player. In order to make your stand once again, we can expect more magical weaponry to level the playing field. Just like the base game, Amid Evil: The Black Labyrinth will likely have a banging soundtrack as well.
Definitely not a heretic
The prequel content will also explore your origins as the champion, turning back time in order to give players more context with Amid Evil: The Black Labyrinth. How far that will go remains to be seen. For veteran players returning to the fold, it will be an interesting experience for sure. Certain fan-favorite weapons will likely not make it into the expansion, although the developers are sure to have interesting alternatives to make up for it. In fact, that makes me even more excited about what is to come in Amid Evil: The Black Labyrinth.
There is currently no date set for the release of Amid Evil: The Black Labyrinth. However, New Blood has shared that it will be in the near future. 2020 sure could do with some good, and this might just be it.
