Morbid: The Lords of Ire to Release Early on May 17

It’s not often we get news that a game is releasing earlier than planned, but this is the case for Morbid: The Lords of Ire, a nightmarish action-adventure developed by Still Running and published by Merge Games. A sequel to 2020’s Morbid: The Seven Acolytes, The Lords of Ire will be launching a week earlier on May 17 on PC, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and Xbox Series X|S. In addition, good news for Xbox fans is the game will also be releasing on Xbox One.

Morbid: The Lords of Ire is a continuation and reinvention of the isometric souls-like ARPG Morbid: The Seven Acolytes, taking more of a 3D souls-like viewpoint. You will play as the heroic Striver of Dibrom, returning once more to do battle with horrific creatures in a dark and twisted world of pain and suffering. Slaughter hideous creatures using a range of vicious weapons, equipment and blessings to eviscerate everything in your path.

Building on the sanity system from The Seven Acolytes, how you approach combat can have a dramatic impact on the world around you. Succumbing to insanity can grant incredible power, but at great personal risk, and will dynamically change how you perceive the world around you. Battle your way through the five lands of Ire – horrific realms populated by five unique factions, from wintry mountains to rotten cities and beyond. Fulfill your sacred duty to rid the lands of the evil that has befallen them.

For those who haven’t yet had a taste of the nightmare that awaits, a demo is currently available on Steam and PlayStation 5. It’s the perfect opportunity to test your skills and whet your appetite for the full experience. Morbid: The Lords of Ire will be launching on May 17 on PC, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One/Series X|S.
