Developer Snail Games has a new RPG set in the works named Dark and Light for PC via Steam Early Access, which is much like ARK: Survival Evolved in that it’s a sandbox game and not an MMORPG. The game is set to come out in 2017 and currently has a new teaser trailer showing in-game footage.
If sandbox RPG games are fun to you, Snail Games’ Dark and Light is said to hold some familiar and improved features in the genre. Additionally, players and NPCs can progress and learn new skills in a “growth system” that allows for abilities like crafting, speed, endurance strength and more to be mastered your way. Although the listed features sounds like any other RPG game, this game encourages mixing classes and skills to build a limitless hybrids that can still support a team — if you choose to team up.
Moreover, if you want a further in-depth take on the game the devs posted up Dark and Light’s official description for you to look over…
“Dark and Light is a vast sandbox RPG set in a world dominated by powerful elemental forces. Find your way in a meticulously crafted world, featuring breathtaking landscapes, a wide variety of mythical creatures, and limitless possibility to craft, build, and unlock over 100 abilities.”
Honestly, I’m not sure how this game will turn out and if it will be anything like its CG trailer below. But, if you are curious and wish to see more of the upcoming sandbox RPG you can watch the one minute and 20 second long trailer that comes in by Snail Dark and Light.
Adding on to the above, snippets of in-game footage shows running around the world, swimming, fighting and doing other types of interactions with the sandbox world that is said to be “meticulously crafted” from scratch.
