XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today surprised fans with the release of a free playable demo for their upcoming action RPG, Silent Hope, which is scheduled to launch on the Nintendo Switch™ system in North America and Windows PC via Steam worldwide on Oct. 3. The demo allows players to take on the entire first level of the Abyss, and is now available for download digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch and Steam. The demo will also allow players to carry over any progress made to the full release.

To help adventurers eager to explore The Abyss, XSEED Games will soon release an update to the recently launched ‘Official World Guide.’ The next update will familiarize players with the user-interface and control scheme, and delve into some of the dangers and opportunities that await them below. While exploring, players may encounter unique challenges including ‘Memory Rifts’, which transport the player to a special temporary realm containing deadlier monsters that yield rare and powerful loot when defeated, and mysterious ‘Blackstone Statue Trials’ that reward those strong enough to defeat them. After any expedition into The Abyss, successful or not, players will return to Base Camp, where all seven heroes have their own unique role to play in crafting the supplies needed for the next descent. Whether using gathered materials to create and upgrade equipment at the Warrior’s Forge, caring for animals and harvesting their byproducts on the Archer’s Farm, or whipping up buff-granting food in the Fighter’s Kitchen, everyone has a part to play if the seven heroes hope to conquer the Abyss!

Silent Hope harkens back to the glory days of isometric dungeon-crawlers, but with modern flourishes. Players will take the role of seven unlikely heroes, each with their own unique weapon, fighting style, and non-combat job, spending their days battling through enemies and collecting materials in The Abyss before returning to Base Camp to rest, improve their gear, and prepare for their next adventure into the depths. Each journey into The Abyss will be a fresh experience, with procedurally generated layouts ensuring no two adventures are the same, with greater dangers lurking the further the heroes dare to venture.
