Coming from new developer Covenant, Gord is a dark fantasy RPG that centers around a growing village and the many threats they face while trying to survive. First teased on April 8 via the game’s official Twitter page, we now have the first gameplay elements and plot for the upcoming survival-sim and city-builder, which is coming from Stan Just, a former developer from CD Projekt Red and 11-Bit Studios.
The main story of Gord follows The Tribe of the Dawn’s struggles and growth while surviving a fantasy world inspired by Slovic folklore. Throughout the game, you will decide how you want your village to evolve, how best to defend your community from threats, and how to use your limited resources to keep your town prosperous for the future.
In addition to city-builder gameplay, allowing you to customize and outfit your village as you see fit, the game also includes survival RPG mechanics, where you take a member of your community out into the wild to forage for supplies and food. While exploring, they may encounter monsters, some minor and others rare and mysterious, to hunt–allowing them to collect more materials to bring back to the village.
