Developer Krafton, perhaps best known for their genre-spawning battle royale PUBG: Battlegrounds, has released a concept trailer for the yet-to-be-officially-named Unannounced Project. This ambitious fantasy adventure game is based on the best-selling Korean novel, The Bird That Drinks Tears, written by Lee Yeongdo. We don’t have a lot of concrete facts regarding the title so far, but the tone is cool as hell, and a far cry from the usual Tolkienian-inspired fare we see in the West.
The trailer shows the book’s protagonist, Kagan Draca, the Nhaga Slayer, mercilessly dispatching a group of the serpentine Nhaga, creatures inspired by East Asian Folklore. The violence, shown in such incredible graphical detail, is fairly shocking, even for jaded veterans of countless video game battlefields like us.
Considering the developer is still looking for partners to bring this particular title to life, this one is likely a long way off. Still, what do you make of Krafton’s Unannounced Project? Commit heinous acts in the comments section below.
