The Souls-like genre is growing, and Dolem is the latest game to bundle these influences into a different package.
Dolmen was revealed again today as another project to be released by Prime Matter. Dolmen is a sci-fi action RPG set in a Giger-esque universe.
If the name sounds familiar to you, it’s because Dolmen launched successfully in 2018. Indie developer Massive Work showcased the game at a preview event that VG247 attended, showing off a few minutes of playtime. Dolmen is a challenging game, with endurance-based battles, environmental puzzles, and big boss fights.
The game features both melee and ranged combat, with players free to choose one over the other or create a hybrid between the two. Souls players will be familiar with the game’s beacon system – essentially bonfires and a mechanic that causes players to drop their shards to death, which can be picked up in the next race.
Between races, you can spend earned money to unlock new abilities. There’s even a parry system that lets you strike back if you time your shield block correctly.
You will be able to play Dolmen on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S in 2022.
