Again in 2021, New Blood Interactive mentioned The Black Labyrinth, the prequel to its most wonderful Hexen-esque fantasy FPS Amid Evil, could be out—as normal—”Quickly™.” Two years later, it really goes to occur quickly: New Blood introduced right now that the long-awaited growth will lastly go stay on August 18.

The Black Labyrinth is a full “growth pack” for Amid Evil that particulars the journey to, and trial of, the titular labyrinth. It is acquired new ranges, new weapons, and “new evil,” together with “the keeper of the legendary Axe of the Black Labyrinth.” Kick his ass, snag the axe, and declare the title of Champion!

It is not the deepest story ever informed, however that is Amid Evil for you (and boomer shooters usually, actually). We do know that there is a new pair of spiked gauntlets within the growth, and a scythe that “cuts actuality,” which sounds fairly wild besides when you think about that the game already has a magic employees that grabs random planets from all through the cosmos, shrinks them to concerning the measurement of a basketball, after which fires them like grenades. In comparison with that, slicing the material of actuality is absolutely kinda meh.

For the advantage of anybody who hasn’t but performed Amid Evil, the brand new trailer might sound a little bit ridiculous however that is really how the game is. It is overwhelming at occasions, and I imply that in a great way, however I additionally discovered when enjoying the unique that I sometimes needed to cease for some time as a result of holy shit, it is simply an excessive amount of. Am I getting previous? Presumably. Am I going to play The Black Labyrinth? Completely. Possibly I can not put it straight into my veins the best way I used to, however Amid Evil is a superb shooter and if there’s extra available, I would like it.

Amid Evil: The Black Labyrinth is on the market for wishlisting now on Steam. It’s not presently listed on GOG, however Amid Evil is (and is presently on sale for $6, down from $20) and so I anticipate The Black Labyrinth will find yourself there too. I’ve reached out to New Blood to verify, but it surely’s Friday evening so I in all probability will not hear something again for just a few days. I am going to update once I do.
