Today, publisher Lace Mamba Global confirms the contents of the upcoming Krater retail Collector’s Edition that will be priced at £19.99/€19.99. Krater is a lush post-apocalyptic top down action RPG, based on gameplay elements such as crafting, exploration and consequence. Extensive crafting (craft unique abilities, weapons and items) and character persistence where both injuries and experience work in conjunction are key elements to evolve the player’s team over time. Krater combines combat mechanics of action-RPGs with top-down tactics of classic old-school dungeon crawlers.
Krater Collector’s Edition includes:
· The full game
· Dr Cerberus special character pack
· Krater soundtrack-CD
· 40-page “The Art of Krater” book, designed exclusively for this retail version of Krater
· A double-sided poster
The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world around a gigantic impact crater where cities have been built on and even whole nations emerged from the rubble and aftermath of a huge bomb explosion. The center of the crater is an abyss that stretches deeper into Earth than anyone has ever been able to dig.
One of the players’ main goals is to build a team and try to get as deep as possible into the abyss. The game world offers several joinable factions and groups, such as the Free-diggers, for example, bands of fortune seekers who compete with each other to excavate valuable pre-armageddon technology from an endless system of tunnels, caves and bunkers, called the Underside.
Krater is scheduled to arrive in retail throughout the UK and Ireland on August17th, 2012, and on August 31st, 2012, in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
