To help you share why this is an adventure you won’t want to miss, we’re here to share the 7 most exciting things to know about UNDECEMBER.
UNDECEMBER’s story and Lore are as exciting as the gameplay
UNDESEMBER takes place in a universe where 12 beings rose from the void to create a land called Traum. This was a land that had known peace and prosperity for many years, and its inhabitants would come to worship these 12 beings as gods who were as generous as they were powerful. One day, however, a 13th being known as the evil god Serpens rose from the void and began spreading chaos and death throughout Traum.
In an attempt to stop the Serpens, the original 12 gods gave humanity runes and essences infused with their power to defeat this evil. This plan failed and the beings decided that the only way to stop Serpens was to bring her back to the void with them and enter an eternal sleep. This worked for a time, but the descendants of Traum would eventually start using the runes again in an attempt to bring back the gods, but they accidentally brought back the wrong one and awakened an evil unlike any seen before.
Fans of Diablo, Torchlight and Minecraft: Legends Will Find Plenty to Love in DECEMBER
Fans of legends in the hack-and-slash genre such as Diablo, Torchlight and Minecraft: Legends will find a lot to love in UNDESEMBER, as it takes the best aspects of those games into one unforgettable game. From countless on-screen enemies to flashy and powerful abilities to epic gear just waiting to be found to terrifying bosses, UNDECEMBER is filled to the brim with hours and hours of content that will keep even the most hardened of adventurers satisfied.
“As a genre where character growth is tied to destroying enemies to obtain new items, focus was placed on the proposition of ‘gaining strength after annihilating enemies’ during development,” said developer Needs Games and publisher LINE Games. “When moving away from the typical growth system, players will be able to enjoy completing their own unique builds.”
Upgrade in style with UNDECEMBER’s Zodiac Growth System
Leveling up will be essential to your survival as you travel through the world of UNDECEMBER, and the Zodiac Growth System will be how you grow your character from a green soldier to a legend warrior. The system is divided into two parts – the first growth axis and the second growth axis.
The first axis is where you build your character’s core stats – Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence. By increasing these stats, you’ll be able to equip more powerful gear and take on the ever-growing dangers of the world. The second axis is composed of constellations that can be activated with attribute points you earn in battle and will unlock passive skills that further increase your power. The Zodiac system is all about flexibility and allows for countless builds depending on your specific playstyle.
The rune throw puts the power of devastating skills in your hands
To conquer the evil in the world of UNDECEMBER, players need powerful equipment and even more powerful skills. These skills range from fireballs that will melt any enemy to deadly icicles that will penetrate the most robust armor to lightning bolts that will stop even the strongest enemies in their tracks. Players can choose the skills they want to master, and they do so through Rune Cast.
This Rune Cast consists of Skill Runes and Link Runes. The skill runes are placed on the Rune Cast and give players access to the previously mentioned abilities. Each skill rune is then surrounded by up to six slots that can be filled with Link Runes. These linking runes can enhance or change the properties of the skill runes. For example, a Link Rune can allow a Fireball Skill Rune to throw out multiple projectiles instead of just one.
These runes, along with the incredibly powerful equipment you find on your journey, will be the keys necessary to save Traum and all you hold dear.
Legendary equipment awaits the bravest players, and improved equipment awaits the most resourceful
Gear is just as important as leveling up and choosing the best skills, as it will keep you alive as you work to take down the evil God Serpent. By leveling up, players will be able to equip powerful gear that will bring with it a level of protection necessary for survival. But if you happen to find gear that seems like it was made by the gods for you, you’ll have the opportunity to improve it through materials you earn from dismantling other gear that no longer suits you.
Beyond the campaign, UNDECEMBER has co-op, raids, chaos dungeons and markets
UNDECEMBER has a campaign that will take many hours to complete, but there is so much more to the game that awaits players. First of all, co-op dungeons will allow players to gather their most trusted allies to fight through challenges that only teamwork can solve. Chaos Dungeons is another way for players to test their mettle and earn the most legendary gear by doing so. Raid will include the most fearsome and massive bosses that only the most powerful warriors will have any hope of taking down. PvP will let players prove, once and for all, who is the best. And finally, markets will allow players to buy and sell any item they may find.
Speaking of promotions, UNDECEMBER has one not to be missed
In addition to building a unique character and participating in the modes mentioned above, UNDECEMBER offers an extensive and interesting campaign mode to explore the dark fantasy world. The campaign is set up in 10 acts – each filled with exciting developments in the game’s story, immersive environments and boss battles that will test even the most experienced players.
UNDESEMBER is filled with options and features to make it an enjoyable experience everywhere
Alongside all the previously mentioned content, UNDECEMBER will have many features that will make it a joy and easy to play. For example, the game is about control. There is no automatic play to be found here and your winnings will be won by your hand and not a computer. Furthermore, seamless cross-play and gamepad support provide benefits that are additive to the overall experience.
UNDECEMBER is out now on PC, iOS and Android and is free to play for everyone. The game has been enjoyed throughout Asia and Europe during the testing phase, and now this brand new hack-and-slash adventure is available worldwide.
