With Pagan Online, a new action-RPG developed by Serbian studio Mad Head Games. With Wargaming handling publishing duties the PC title is set in a world built on pre-Christian mythology – so expect angels, demons, and beasts ala Diablo. Although all we have to go on is a somewhat over-the-top cinematic trailer, the game promises to feature “challenging and fast-paced combat, powerful combatants, endless gear, and tons of gory glory.”
And err, combat built on the style and flow of the MOBA genre. Okay.
“With Pagan Online we’ve modernized how combat in a top-down action RPG works, taking cues from MOBAs to create something that’s fast-paced, overwhelming with enemies, and super challenging,” said Uros Banjesevic, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Mad Head Games. “It’s a thrill to finally be able to share this game, the product of our blood, sweat, and tears, with the world!”
“Mad Head Games are passionate, talented, and have a ‘go broke’ mentality to do whatever it takes to make their game as awesome as it can be,” said Jacob Beucler, Product Director, Wargaming. “We’ve taken Mad Head under our wing because this mentality reminds us of the early days at Wargaming when we put everything we had on the line to launch World of Tanks. Pagan Online is one of Wargaming’s most exciting opportunities yet—we’re helping bring these devs’ passion and skill to PC gamers everywhere.”
In terms of structure a lot of it sounds like Diablo, with difficulty levels, dungeons, replayable missions, but with new story content added on a episodic basis. Sounds interesting, and we’ll be sure to share gameplay footage when it emerges.
