Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn Announced
Publisher Kepler Interactive and A44, developers of the acclaimed 2018 RPG Ashen, have announced their next project: Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn. It’s an open-world RPG due out later this year for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (both on Steam and the Epic Games Store). It will also launch right on Xbox Game Pass.
You’ll combine weapons and magic in the Flintlock fight, along with an AI-controlled magical canine companion (which you can see in the cinematic trailer at the top of this page) to defeat the hordes of undead that threaten humanity.

As A44’s story describes: “The door to the afterlife has been opened, allowing the old god’s army of undead to escape from within. Join Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, and her mystical companion Enki, the strangely gifted with magical powers, as they pursue their own personal vendetta against the gods.” According to the A44, you’ll visit several unique locations, including “desert sands, cavernous ruins, and lofty cities filled with mystery.”
We will have much more information about Flintlock throughout the year.
