Fans of the popular souls-like title Morbid: The Seven Acolytes, rejoice!

The sequel to the 2020 game just released on May 16th, creators from Maximum Entertainment and Still Running announced.

Titled Morbid: The Lords of Ire, it can be played on PC and consoles. These include PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

Morbid: The Lords of Ire, like its predecessor, throws players in a hellscape, roaming with grotesque creatures. At the same time, it introduces new features, including upgraded visuals and hack-and-slash elements.

For The Lords of Ire, developers from Still Running decided to depart from the 2D, isometric art style found in The Seven Acolytes. Instead, the new game will have 3D graphics and perspectives.

"Morbid: The Lords of Ire is a continuation and reinvention of the critically acclaimed isometric souls-like ARPG Morbid: The Seven Acolytes from an all-new 3D perspective," said Maximum.

In the game, players reprise the role of the heroic Striver. For The Lords of Ire, developers added new skills and abilities for Striver. This included doing brutal finishers and wielding devastating guard breaks. She also has the ability to unleash the powerful Spectre Blaster to obliterate stronger foes.

On top of these, developers promised to roll out new worlds for players to explore in The Lords of Ire. The game will have five distinct and horrifying environments, they said. And each of them is teeming with monstrous denizens. From desolate wintry mountains to decaying urban landscapes.

On the other hand, the creators also retained several features from The Seven Acolytes for the sequel. Players can expect the return of the game's signature sanity system in The Lords of Ire.

"Maintain your sanity to gain incredible resilience, unleash devastating critical blows, and earn more experience," developers said. "However, succumb to the allure of madness and unlock a torrent of raw power that lets you deal and take more damage in a frenzy of violence," they added.

Morbid: The Lords of Ire currently carries a price tag of $16.99. For a limited time, publishers offer a limited price discount of up to 20 percent.
