The Serpent Rogue, from Ukrainian developer Sengi Games, is out today on Xbox Series X|S.
First announced in February, The Serpent Rogue combines a roguelike structure with a sandbox dark fantasy world. Playing at a character known as The Warden, you'll explore the world, and use special potions to help rid it of a the titular corruption spreading across the land.
Players are able to use alchemy in order to craft items, create new tactics, and overcome threats, with challenges able to be taken on in multiple different ways. Your actions will also impact the world - for example, food left lying around will attract vermin, while unburied bodies attract ghouls over time.
Developer Sengi Games did consider delaying The Serpent Rogue following Russia's hostile invasion of Ukraine, but ultimately made the decision to “stick to the original plan and launch our game… as promised”.
The Serpent Rogue is available today on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can check out the launch trailer down below.
