Dark Souls Meets Tetris Roguelike 'Loot River' Hits Xbox Series XS, Xbox One & PC On May 3rd

Discover a rich combat system, a varied bestiary of cursed enemies, procedurally-generated labyrinths packed with a bounty of build-changing weapons, spells and other loot, and a rich, lore-filled, fantasy-inspired world to explore.

In Loot River, players are able to harness the power of the Relic to shift the ground beneath them, sliding around on the floating pieces of ruined landscapes. These Tetris-like blocks can be slotted together to solve spatial exploration puzzles and employed creatively as a tool in combat to manipulate enemies and control the space on which your battles take place. As players venture through these endless catacombs, they’ll encounter horrifying beasts, lost travelers, and epic bosses.

As players explore ruined waterways, they can discover a wealth of new weapons, gear, spells and unholy knowledge: swords that thrust you forward towards enemies; axes that shoot projectiles; elemental enchantments; spells; armour and charms that imbue you with unique abilities. Combining these to create powerful and surprising synergies is crucial in helping you get further with each run. straka.studio’s recent developer walkthrough gives you a tantalising taste of the possibilities these combinations can offer.

Drawn to shards of an unholy relic, wandering nomads have found themselves in a perpetual cycle of life and death, losing their sanity as they journey through endless parallel realities, devouring each other to absorb the knowledge of their fellow travelers. No two journeys are ever the same as countless lost souls float through the Loot River.

“I’m so pleased to finally announce that we will be bringing Loot River to PC and Xbox, via Xbox Game Pass, on May 3rd,” said creative director Miro Straka. “The attention the game has gotten over the last couple of years at showcases like Guerilla Collective, Day of the Devs and Xbox’s ID@XBox events has been incredible, but what I’m really looking forward to is getting the game in players’ hands!”

The ‘Dark Souls meets Tetris’ action roguelike will be available for Xbox & PC on May 3, 2022 and will be available to download for Xbox Game Pass subscribers on release day.
