With Dead Island Riptide out, Techland has now announced their next project. Hellraid is a first person co-op hack and slash game that pits four players against hellish beasts. The developers are saying it will have plenty of loot and combine elements of first person action RPGs and first person shooters. There isn’t much else to go on just yet, and the three screenshots (posted below) Techland has put out at this point look more like renders than in-game screens but it will be interesting to see what they can pull off. The game’s set for release this year on PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.

Techland has formally announced Hellraid, a first-person co-op slasher that offers two games in one: a single-player, story-driven campaign of hack & slash action; and unique, co-operative multiplayer that pits four players against the denizens of hell – and each other – in a battle for points, rewards and fame. The first official screenshots, game details and more are available on Hellraid.com, where you’ll also find the developers blog, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the production of Hellraid.

The armies of Hell brought pain and destruction to the realm of man, and only a select few have the fighting skills necessary to confront the devilish monstrosities. Combining elements of hack & slash RPGs, first-person shooters and online multiplayer games, Hellraid features an advanced, immersive combat system with melee, ranged and magical weapons. The engaging Game Master system makes each game a different experience, placing loot and enemies while generating random online challenges.

With exploration, looting, questing, weapon crafting, boss fights, armor customization, character development, leaderboards, magic and so much more, Hellraid is set to drag you straight to hell later this year on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
