To help share why this is one adventure you won’t want to miss, we are here to break down the 7 most exciting things to know about UNDECEMBER.
UNDECEMBER’s Story and Lore Is as Exciting as Its Gameplay
UNDECEMBER takes place in a universe where 12 beings rose from the Void to create a land called Traum. This was a land that knew peace and prosperity for many years, and its inhabitants would come to worship these 12 beings as gods as they were as generous as they were powerful. However, one day a 13th being known as the Evil God Serpens rose from the Void and began to spread chaos and death throughout Traum.
In an attempt to stop Serpens, the original 12 gods gave humanity Runes and Essences infused with their power to smite this evil. This plan failed, and the beings decided the only way to stop Serpens was to bring her back to the Void with them and enter an eternal slumber. This worked for a time, but the descendants of Traum would eventually begin using the Runes again in an attempt to bring the gods back, but they accidentally brought back the wrong one and awakened an evil unlike any that has been seen before.
Fans of Diablo, Torchlight, and Minecraft: Legends Will Find Plenty to Love in UNDECEMBER
Fans of legends in the hack-and-slash genre like Diablo, Torchlight, and Minecraft: Legends will find plenty to love in UNDECEMBER, as it takes the best aspects of these games for one unforgettable game. From countless enemies on screen to flashy and powerful abilities to epic gear that’s 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 hard-core of adventurers satisfied.
“As a genre where character growth is tied to devastating enemies to obtain new items, the focus was set upon the proposition to ‘gain strength after wiping out enemies’ during development,” developer Needs Games and publisher LINE Games said. “Stirring away from the typical growth system, players will be able to enjoy completing their own unique builds.”
Level Up in Style With UNDECEMBER’s Zodiac Growth System
Leveling up will be crucial to your survival as you journey through the world of UNDECEMBER, and the Zodiac Growth System will be how you grow your character from a green soldier to a warrior of legend. The system is separated into two parts – the First Growth Axis and the Second Growth Axis.
The first axis is where you will build the core stats of your character – Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence. By growing these stats, you will 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 trait points you earn in battle and will unlock passive skills that further boost your power. The Zodiac system is all about flexibility and allows for countless builds depending on your specific playstyle.
The Rune Cast Puts the Power of Devastating Skills In Your Hands
To conquer the evils of UNDECEMBER’s world, players will need powerful gear and even more powerful skills. These skills range from fireballs that will melt any foe to deadly icicles that will pierce the most sturdy armor to lightning that will stop even the strongest enemies in their tracks. Players can choose the skills they most want to master, and they do so through the 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 link runes can enhance or change the properties of the Skill Runes. For example, one Link Rune can allow a Fireball Skill Rune to throw out multiple projectiles instead of just one.
These runes, alongside the incredibly powerful gear you will find along your journey, will be the keys necessary to save Traum and everything you hold dear.
Legendary Gear Awaits the Bravest Players, and Enhanced Gear 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 Serpens. By leveling up, players will be able to equip powerful gear that will bring with it a level of protection needed to survive. However, if you happen to find gear that seems as though it was made by the gods for you, you will have the ability to enhance it through materials you earn from disassembling other gear that no longer suits you.
Beyond Its Campaign, UNDECEMBER Features Co-Op, Raids, Chaos Dungeons, and Markets
UNDECEMBER features 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 could solve. Chaos Dungeons are another way for players to test their might and earn the most legendary of gear doing so. Raids will include the most fearsome and massive bosses that only the mightiest of warriors will have any hope of taking down. PvP will let players prove, once and for all, who is the best. And, lastly, markets will let players buy and sell any item they may find.
Speaking of Campaigns, UNDECEMBER Has One That Is Not to be Missed
In addition to building out 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 into 10 Acts — each filled with exciting developments to the game’s lore, immersive environments, and boss battles that will test even the most seasoned gamers.
UNDECEMBER Is Filled With Options and Features to Make it an Enjoyable Experience All Around
Alongside all the previously mentioned content, UNDECEMBER will have many features that will make it a joy and ease to play. For example, the game is all about control. There is no auto-play to be found here, and your victories will be won by your hand and not some computer. Furthermore, seamless crossplay and game-pad support add benefits that are additive to the overall experience.
UNDECEMBER is out now on PC, iOS, and Android and it’s free-to-play for all. The game has been enjoyed by those throughout Asia and Europe during the testing phase, and now this brand-new hack-and-slash adventure is available to all around the world to enjoy.
