The atmospheric action and adventure title, BELOW, is now available to purchase outright on Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles or play for free as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription service.
BELOW is designed to be challenging gaming experience with randomly-generated locations, little hand-holding, and permadeath (no respawning after a character dies). The game has been highly anticipated by gamers and gaming media alike since its initial reveal in 2013 but had been delayed for several years due to the developers wanting to perfect their creation before its release.
Here’s the official game description, trailer, and store link:
Test your adventurer mettle against The Isle’s procedural subterranean labyrinths. Explore a large, interconnected underworld crawling with cunning wildlife, deadly traps and stalked by a shadowy presence. Survive the perils of The Depths and unearth what lies below… or die trying.. BELOW is a procedural terrarium filled with life, mystery and death.
Explore the vast subterranean underworld of The Isle: a dangerous, unfathomable deep. Choose your path through the randomly generated labyrinth crawling with deadly monstrosities, traps and hazardous environments. Perma-death awaits at every false step, and there are no hints to guide you… Spelunking through The Depths of BELOW is a treacherous endeavour, with death around every corner. The world is alive with flora & fauna, and there are many ways to scavenge materials and harvest ingredients to create life-saving remedies or useful survival tools…
What lies below? Only the bravest wanderers will find out. The Depths are filled with secrets and danger. BELOW embraces the idea that players enjoy discovering secret areas, finding hidden passageways and unravelling the deepest mysteries hidden in the darkness…
