Techland’s Hellraid delayed to 2014

Hellraid_LogoTechland today announced that Hellraid, their unique, first person slash-em-up for the PS3, XBox 360 and PC, has been pushed into 2014. The reason? To polish up the games, and to work on some new features and game modes.

It sucks, but hey, at least we have a new screenshot.

Read on for the details from Techland.

As the team adds new features and game modes for both single-player and co-op, Techland announces that its upcoming game, Hellraid, will be released digitally in 2014.

?Since we started developing Hellraid we have had a clear goal to create a game that we all would love to play. We wanted to pay tribute to the best aspects of classic titles we grew up on and enhance them with new ideas, modern technology and extensive co-op that would provide players with dozens or even hundreds of hours of pure and bloody fun,? writes game producer Marcin Kruczkiewicz in an update on the Hellraid official blog at

?If we released our game this year we would have to make too many compromises and the final product probably wouldn?t meet all our promises and players? expectations.?

The decision to release Hellraid in 2014 was made in order to implement new ideas and redesign those parts of the game that fans didn?t like while playtesting the game. ?For example we want to redesign the magic system to make it even more powerful and diverse, add new ways of casting spells and a set of new, more visually stunning spells,? reveals Kruczkiewicz. The team wants to use this additional time also to add new gameplay features and game modes which should make the game even more entertaining for both single player and 4-player co-op.

Hellraid offers a story-driven campaign of hack & slash action and unique, competitive co-op multiplayer that pits four players against the armies of hell ? and each other ? in a battle for points, rewards and fame. The game is developed by Techland for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
