Now Playing: Miasma Chronicles | Pre-Release Alpha Gameplay: Video 01

From Miasma Chronicles' pre-release alpha gameplay released in Feburary, players can choose between a light tactical--described as a more predictable combat experience--and full tactical, a more chaotic and unpredictable mode. The game opens with protagonist Elvis, accompanied by his robot brother Diggs, trying to break through a Miasma wall with his gloves. He fails, and the gloves break.

In the combat segment of alpha gameplay, players and enemies use cover, partial or otherwise, to their advantage. Enemies in full cover can be countered by flanking them, and if players are covered, enemies can counter in the same way. (Do be prepared for Elvis quipping a lot in what sounds like a best effort at a Southern accent.)

Miasma Chronicles releases on May 23, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store for $50 USD.
