Meta Studios has released a gameplay teaser trailer for its upcoming Unreal Engine 5-powered game, Mictlan: An Ancient Mythical Tale. Mictlan: An Ancient Mythical Tale will be an action-adventure open-world game, that currently targets a 2025 release date.
In this game, players will be able to explore a vast open-world, learn how to survive the journey across Mictlan, the Valley of the Death, while ancient Mesoamerican gods meddle with their fate and Spanish soldiers want their head on a stake.
For those wondering, Meta Studios is a Mexican-American studio. Additionally, Mictlan: An Ancient Mythical Tale is the first video game completely based on Mesoamerican history and culture.
Since this teaser trailer is short, I’ve decided to also include below its first UE5 trailer. This trailer will give you a better idea of what you can expect from it. However, keep in mind that this is a WIP trailer, and does not represent the quality of the final game.
Lastly, here are the game’s key features:
- Slash and cut your enemies with the deadly Macuahuitl; a wooden club with shiny, sharp and cruel obsidian pieces embedded in its sides.
- Keep enemies at distance using the Tepoztopilli; a long pole-arm weapon the height of a man, with its superior reach and thrusting ability.
- Throw your spears from a great distance with deadly force and speed using the lethal Atlatl. By using the Atlatl, you can also pierce through any armor or enemy.
- Increase your magic skills and conjure spells to summon spirits, defeat enemies and protect yourself.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
