Baldur's Gate 3 has entered the top 10 on Steam ever. I also discuss the Metal Gear Solid total sales, and the advanced gameplay trailer for Atlas Fallen.

Diving Deeper into the Gameplay of Atlas Fallen

The esteemed developers behind the highly anticipated game, Atlas Fallen, have given gamers worldwide a thrilling taste of what's to come with the release of their advanced gameplay trailer. This innovative trailer provides a captivating peek into the intricate combat system and various gameplay elements that promise to bring new depth to the action RPG genre.

From the onset, the trailer showcases the ability to parry and stun enemies, a feature that will undoubtedly add a rich layer of strategic depth to every battle. This mechanic urges players to not just mindlessly attack but to closely observe enemy movements and time their actions precisely. Successful parries leave enemies stunned and open to devastating counter-attacks.

However, the exciting possibilities don't stop there. Atlas Fallen takes combat to the skies with the introduction of aerial battles. This aspect of gameplay is set to revolutionize the traditional combat scenarios we're used to, allowing players to soar through the air and launch attacks from various angles. Aerial combat adds a dynamic dimension to battles, opening up an array of strategic possibilities for both offense and defense.

The concept of gaining momentum also seems integral to the game's combat system. Whether it involves chaining attacks for devastating combos or building up a speed advantage in the heat of battle, the implications of this mechanic will surely be a game-changer, making each encounter unique.

The world of Atlas Fallen is set to unravel in front of gamers worldwide on the 10th of August, 2023. As the clock ticks closer to this date, the question that lingers on everyone's mind is - will you be taking the plunge into the vibrant universe of Atlas Fallen?
