Zelda Meets God of War in Insomniac's New Action Game

Feral Rites will have mid-air combat, beast transformations, and more.


Ratchet and Clank developer Insomniac Games has revealed a new action game titled Feral Rites. Creative director Marcus Smith, who also directed the Xbox One-exclusive Sunset Overdrive, has described the gameplay as having the "exploration of Zelda" and the "all-out combat" of God of War. Check out some of the key art and screenshots in our gallery below.

Feral Rites will launch exclusively on the Oculus Rift this fall. The player can choose whether to play as a male or female main character, and will be able to transform into different beasts to use special abilities and powers. The concept art revealed thus far has a Celtic myth vibe.

Players will be able to fight in a combo-based combat system and unlock extra gear to customize their character. Gameplay isn't just limited to fighting on the ground either--mid-air combos and executions will be a part of the combat.

Insomniac Games revealed more information on several upcoming titles such as The Unspoken, an Oculus Rift-exclusive game which features first-person magic casting. GameSpot recently got hands-on with the game; check out what editor Mike Mahardy thought of the experience in our full write-up.
