Underworld Ascendant Gameplay Footage: Return to the Stygian Abyss with Marvelous Powers!


Old school PC gamers will undoubtedly remember a dark fantasy realm known as the Stygian Abyss. As role playing games became more immersive on the computer, ‘Ultima Underworld’ forged a pathway to the expansive fantasy epics we have today. Though 1992 seems like a lifetime ago, the ‘Underworld’ franchise is not a relic of the past, but is being revitalized with the help of Paul Neurath and Otherside Entertainment.

Underworld Ascendant’ was recently shown off behind closed doors at PAX South. Fret not if you were not in attendance, because we’ve got some gameplay footage to show you. Below is a short clip which shows off the various hero kits and various environments that will be present in the Stygian Abyss. Player agency appears to have a major effect on the game as our choices will change the environment, some of which is present in the following footage.

Underworld Ascendant’ is slated for a second half of 2018 release on Steam. Though not available for preorder, it can be added to your wishlist.

Mike Phalin Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and FanBolt. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry and pulled him out of his seven year retirement. Since 2013, Phalin's focus is creating an outlet for up and coming professionals, actors, and filmmakers via his Syxx Sense Interview Series. These videos can be found on YouTube, Vimeo, and TopBuzz. Mike Phalin recently has been on set for many Netflix shows including Stranger Things, Lost in Space, and Altered Carbon.
