Deadhaus Sonata - First Age Coming Later This Year

If you have fond memories of the Legacy of Kain series, you might be interested in Deadhaus Sonata, a new game from Denis Dyack who you may know as the director of Blood Omen.

Described as a narrative-driven action-RPG, Deadhaus Sonata will let you play as an undead creature engaging in fast-paced combat, discovering endless loot, and participating in all manner of story content, some of it, community-created.

Right now, you can check out the game’s Steam page or the official website that features an extensive FAQ and allows you to support the project during the early stages of development and get access to its early Ages.

These Ages are an interesting feature that replaces the traditional Alpha and Beta releases and allows you to leave a permanent mark on the game’s world. At the moment, the game’s First Age is scheduled to go live sometime around Q4 2021.

Here’s a video describing this feature and showing off some early gameplay:

And here's the game’s official description:
