Team17 has today announced alchemy driven action-adventure The Serpent Rogue will launch on 26th April, 2022. Currently in development at Sengi Games, the game will launch on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on 26th April, 2022.
In The Serpent Rogue, players enter the role of The Warden. They will embark on a quest to save the world from a corruption known only as the titular Serpent Rogue. While doing so, they must utilise each tool at their disposal to cleanse the realm and restore balance to Mount Morbus.
Alchemy is one of the key ingredients in The Serpent Rogue’s gameplay and mastering it will be pivotal to The Warden’s success. Players must collect and research ingredients, discovering their uses and experimenting with different mixtures to craft unique potions. Those concoctions can then be used in a variety of ways to progress through the world.
Each action The Warden takes has an effect on the wider world. For instance, if too many items are left littered around an area, rodents will arrive en masse to cause havoc. If bodies are left unburied, ghouls will be lured by their scent leaving death and destruction in their wake.
According to publisher Team17, here’s the highlights of the game:
The Serpent Rogue Key Features
