Pixelmad Studios has revealed its brand new trailer for the upcoming Soulborn closed alpha.
Inspired by Norse mythology, you are Brynjar Townshield, a Soulborn demigod and bearer of the most powerful weapon of all nine worlds: Mjölnir. Mjölnir is able to transform into a sword, a bow, or its original form as the legendary hammer, and will help you vanquish the soul-devouring beast Nidhöggr who threatens to destroy Midgard!
During your journey, you will have to explore dungeons, solve puzzles, craft new gear, and finish quests thanks to your skills and the help of your precious friends.
As development goes through, new content will be added. Players will be able to travel across a small part of its open world, explore 2 dungeons, and solve puzzles in the first version of this closed-alpha.
If you are interested in participating in the closed alpha, it will be available on discord, which you can join here.
The closed alpha trailer for Soulborn looks interesting if somewhat rudimentary. The mechanic of a shapeshifting Mjölnir helping you bring order to the chaotic realms of Norse Mythology is fascinating. Now we need a decent cast of characters to bring this all together. After all, we have the bones of a compelling story and a gameplay mechanic that could grow into something great.
