Over the weekend, Team EARTH WARS announced that LOST EPIC, a 2D side-scrolling action RPG with fast-paced battles and elements of hack-and-slash, surprise-released on Steam Early Access for Windows PC without a prior release date announcement.
Featuring a vast amount of character progression options and a multitude of upgradeable weapons, LOST EPIC invites adventurers to summon help from other players online by using the item Shroud of Mist. Two explorers can join in, spawn to the chosen area, assist the main character in exchange for Anima that strengthens equipment, and Tamahagane that can further power skills.
Early Access contains a third of the content planned for 1.0, featuring at least 7-10 hours of gameplay with additional challenges. Travel through The Sacred Mountain of Fertilis and Lake Pelgrand, discover more than 30 weapons and more than 100 skills, with character artwork by Namie (Fate/Grand Order, Arknights, Azur Lane).
In a newly released trailer, developer Team EARTH WARS explains the features of Early Access, with multiplayer footage and voices of the characters sprinkled throughout the video. LOST EPIC is still under active development, with further content updates planned ahead of the 2021 launch. The developers invite the community to submit their feedback through Steam and the official Discord server.
