First teased at The Game Awards in 2023, The First Berserker: Khazan tells the story of the Great General Khazan, the ancestor of all slayers, after he was falsely accused of treason. In this hardcore action RPG, thrilling combat takes center stage with every step of Khazan’s bloody quest for vengeance against those who orchestrated his downfall, marked by a dark fantasy world, gritty, manga-inspired visuals and intense, aggressive and ever-changing styles of battle.

The new trailer follows an in-game scene set against the backdrop of the Embars region leading up to a boss encounter with “Viper.” It also highlights key battle scenes during the boss’ first and second phases, never-before-seen combat, executions and Khazan’s impactful burst attacks that ground themselves in Dungeon & Fighter’s trademark punchy, yet edgy cartoon graphics.
