Almighty Kill Your Gods, a four player online co-op multiplayer Action Role Playing Game that is set to be released sometime later this year for PC, and we had the opportunity to speak with Vs. Evil about the game and take a closer look at some of the gameplay mechanics that it game offers. Hunt demons, monsters, and gods solo or online with friends in this action RPG. Run, leap and fly across islands, ripping your foes to pieces, and rebuilding your home with their remains. Bring low the oppressive false gods, protect your kindred and become Almighty. Anger the gods and see the islands change before your eyes.
Not much is known about the story of Almighty, a magical warrior that uses the power of your ancestors, and that you have been reborn to protect your tribe against the tyranny of the elder gods. Players will each have their own island that they will upgrade and enhance that will contain their tribe, and you will see it visually change through out the course of the game. There are four basic “classes” that you choose from when you start Almighty, but the game features a classless system. The four starting classes do not restrict you from using any equipment or skills, but rather give you a starting setup upon which you can build upon or deviate from.
Almighty does have character creation for the player, and Almighty has a customization feature that lets you change your appearance from, eyes, horns, material, and tail. The game also has a Transmog feature that is similar to the one that Dauntless uses, but so far you can only change three categories left gauntlet, right gauntlet and amulet. The character you build is free to use any skills and equipment they want, and this will determine what sort of “class” they become. For example, if you want to be a more tanky character, you would equip the “Shield” ability, allowing you to block attacks and play more defensively.
Almighty has a large focus on mobility and movement due to the size of the islands you’ll be exploring. The game itself plays a lot like a third-person shooter, as players move around rapidly and shoot down enemies and gods from ranged a large portion of the time. You have two types of attack to deal damage to the enemies, and an ultimate ability that goes on a long cool down after use. So far we have seen a meteor barrage ultimate ability that calls down you guessed it, meteors, that decimates any enemies in that area. And, a transformation ability, that increases your size, your charging damage and probably defense as well.
Almighty has a lot of potential, especially the multiplayer aspect of the game. Being able to play with friends is generally more enjoyable than playing alone, and the Island base building feature is also quite unique for this sort of game. It remains to be seen how the game will stack up against the other titles that we’ve compared it to, and with the little we’ve seen so far, there is definitely a danger there of very repetitive gameplay. Especially if the bulk of the combat is just floating and shooting. Additionally, the game does scale to the number of players on each island, increasing in difficulty the bigger “threat” that is posed.
