XSEED Games has announced that Silent Hope is now officially available for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. The latest press release mentions that the game will be 10% off in the eShop for the next week and it will also be 10% off for both the Standard and Digital Deluxe Editions on Steam. They also mention that the Wanderer’s Special Weapon & Voidstone Set DLC, which includes an exclusive in-game weapon for the Wanderer, will be free in the eShop for the next week as well and be included with all Steam purchases of the game. But once this first week after launch is over, it will be available to purchase separately for 99 cents. Not only that, but if you played the demo, your save data will carry over should you purchase a copy of Silent Hope on the same platform. Feel free to check out the brand new launch trailer down below and read a little bit about the game from the press release. Also, you can find our review of the gameover here.
Silent Hope harkens back to the glory days of isometric dungeon-crawlers, but with a modern touch. Players will take the role of seven unlikely heroes, each with their own unique weapon, separate fighting style, and non-combat job, spending their days battling through enemies and collecting materials in The Abyss before returning to Base Camp to craft and rest up for their next adventure. Each journey into The Abyss will be a fresh experience, with procedurally generated layouts ensuring no two expeditions into the mysterious caverns below will be the same. The deeper the heroes delve, the more about the world that once was they’ll uncover, and the greater rewards – and challenges – they’ll find.
In a world without words, what hope is there for humanity? Silent Hope takes place in a once-peaceful land, silenced by the former King who stole people’s speech before escaping into the endless chasm known as The Abyss. Following these events, the Princess, mourning her father’s actions, wept until she was entombed in a magical teardrop. Now, years after these events faded from memory, seven heroes find themselves imbued with new powers and drawn towards the Princess; and to free her they must brave the depths of The Abyss to find the long-lost King and free the Princess from her crystalline prison. Can these seven unlikely strangers come together in wordless unity to save the princess, and in doing so return words to the world once again?
Seven Heroes, Seven Unique Fighting Styles: Players can choose from a motley crew of characters like the well-rounded Wanderer, long-range specialist Archer, or heavy-hitting Warrior to find whose skills suit their playstyle, and embrace new roles and abilities as they gain more experience.
A Home at the Edge of the World: Find new recipes and materials and return to the Base Camp at the edge of The Abyss, where each character has a unique job. From alchemist to blacksmith to cook, each hero brings something different.
Engaging Exploration and Dungeon-Crawling: Experience a new layout each time players enter the enigmatic Abyss, keeping them on their toes every moment. Stay on the lookout for Memory Rifts, where greater rewards and challenges await.
A Vibrant Storybook Aesthetic: With its mournful princess, spellbound kingdom, and everyday heroes, Silent Hope feels like a fairy tale come to life – right down to the mysteries waiting to be uncovered in the visually stunning underworld.
