Indie developer Hyperstrange has shared a new trailer for their game ELDERBORN, a labeled “Hardcore First-Person Slasher” which is emphasizes its focus on melee.  From what we can gather, players can expect the intensity and action of a typical first-person shooter game, but trading the guns away for a variety of different bladed weapons.

ELDERBORN is a First Person Slasher focused on melee combat exclusively. Each enemy whether human or not, has its own behaviour patterns which will require players to adapt to their fighting technique. The levels are created not only horizontally but vertically, so the player will be able to solve every skirmish in a variety of ways. Beware, the enemies aren’t the only dangers of this world: deadly traps and chasms await for those not paying attention.

The game is planned to launch sometime next year for PC.
