Originally planned to release this year, Hellraid will unfortunately not be making its deadline. Techland, the creators of the Dead Island series, have sent out a press release detailing the “tough decision” they made to push the game back for a 2014 release instead.
The reasons for this delay in Hellraid? To make the game better with new ideas and redesigns based on playtesting from fans. From a different kind of magic system that will allow for new ways to cast spells, to a completely new set of spells, to other new gameplay modes and features. While, there isn’t much detail right now about all the new things that will be coming to the game, we will most likely hear more on it as the new release date draws near.
Hellraid will allow players to take on the forces of hell alone or with up to 4 players, which is now set to release digitally for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC sometime in 2014
