Bloodborne in 2D, with a lot of blood
Designed by the small studio Kumi Souls Games, The Last Faith was once again highlighted at tonight’s Future Games Show… and caused quite a stir among netizens.

Our hero will then go through challenging levelsbacked by an arsenal “Melee Weapons, Arcane Spells, and Long Range Firearms”allowing scalable gameplay to be optimized based on enemies and environments.
A violent blood-for-blood game
The trailer, released tonight during Summer Game Fest 2022 – which you can also enjoy in our video player above – sets the tone: The Last Faith promises to be extremely violent, with lots of gore and very trashy performances.

The Last Faith is expected in 2022 on PC via steamPlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcing video games that will come this year or the following years. In 2020, journalist and presenter Geoff Keighley launched this now essential festival for the first time. Last year the show featured stunning images of the Elden Ring; So the third iteration inevitably raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest takes place this Thursday, June 9th at 8pm. The show will again be followed by a Day of the Devs session dedicated to the independent scene.
