Bethesda to Publish Hunted: The Demon’s Forge

PhotobucketBethesda’s quickly growing library of published titles will be expanding by one more with the announcement of Hunted: The Demon’s Forge, a new dark fantasy action game by InXile Entertainment. The announcement boasts Hunted as a co-op dungeon crawl combined with fast action inspired by modern-day shooters.

It seems like a good fit for Bethesda, the company behind both Oblivion and Fallout 3. Developer InXile’s pedigree includes The Bard’s Tale, and company founder Brian Fargo (whose industry credits include Baldur’s Gate and Fallout) is overseeing the project.

Hunted’s dark, grimy graphics come courtesy of Unreal Engine 3, with a visual style and character design that could best be described as a playable metal album cover. The game focuses on two heroes, E’lara and Caddoc, as they mix up long-range magic with up-close melee combat. Hunted: The Demon’s Forge will also feature a cover system and cooperative puzzles.

The game is currently slated for release on PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360, though no release date has been announced yet.
