The game offers hack’n’slash combat in which players will have to master timed attacks to make the best of the skills available to defeat all enemies. With dozens of different skills, weapons and relics to choose from, players can create hundreds of combat combinations to customize their playstyle.
The Early Access of Ember Knights is now available on Steam (PC). Players can buy the game for 14.99€/$14.99/£11.39. Until April 27th, players can enjoy a 10% launch offer when buying the game.
