Ambitious action-RPG Monolith: Requiem of the Ancients now rebranded as Astor: Blade of the Monolith

Medellin, Colombia – April 18th, 2024 – Independent game developer C2 Game Studio has today revealed that its upcoming third-person action-RPG game Monolith: Requiem of the Ancients has been rebranded as Astor: Blade of the Monolith. The newly titled action adventure will launch later this year on PC, Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms.

“We wanted to ensure Astor: Blade of the Monolith had a strong, unique identity. Something to really make it stand out,” said Luis Correa, Founder & game director at C2 Game Studio. “We think the new title offers something punchier and more distinct. And you won’t need to wait long to play it as Astor: Blade of the Monolith will launch on all platforms later this year!”

More about Astor: Blade of the Monolith:
Explore the vibrant planet of Gliese, once inhabited by an ancient race, and now home to their sentient creations – the Diokek. After the ancients’ disappearance, the Diokek lived in peace until malevolent creatures, the Hiltsik, started wreaking havoc among their settlements. With threats of a more sinister force at play, Astor – a young Diokek warrior, must journey across Gliese to solve the mysterious disappearance of his creators thousands of years ago, believing that they may have left behind the key to their salvation
