In a surprising move, PlayStation Plus has quietly introduced what many are calling the most overlooked shooter of 2023: IMMORTALS OF AVEUM. Developed by a new studio, this game harks back to the era when single-player campaigns were the hallmark of shooters, featuring massive set pieces and innovative gameplay mechanics reminiscent of classics like Half-Life 2, BioShock, and Halo: Touch.

A flashback from the past

Aveum: Immortals allows players to travel through a brand-new fantasy environment produced in the “arcanepunk” style, meaning a combination of magic and technological experience. In the game, Jak is a teenage kid who is homeless and lives on the streets of the city named Soren. Nevertheless, Jak’s life suddenly proceeds in a direction he didn’t expect when he finds out that he has awesome powers and is forced to fight for the very existence of the world.

Narrative of Immortals may be nothing groundbreaking but instead, it touches on the more compelling aspects of the game that resemble shooters of old. By capturing the audience with its amazing set piece sequences, brilliant fight scenes, and rich visual effects, Immortals engages the player to be absorbed into the fictional world.

Elemental magic system

Essentially, the game Immortals revolves around its magic elements, and players can use three styles of combat at the same time. Bone magic works as a long-range sniper rifle, fire magic serves as a close-range shotgun and green magic retains healing abilities and the firepower of machine guns. Players proceeding, there will be 25 unique spells which not only increase the level of elemental magic but also 25 new abilities are introduced.

Besides melee attacks, these “control” spells add complexity to game mechanics, allowing gamers to activate superpowers that change the way they confront hostile forces and the world around them. Say, for example, the Lash spell turns into a grappling hook, so that one can get access to new places and extraditions of significantly distanced enemies. On the other hand, Hover will let players fly above the battlefield making a destruction while its Animate spell helps to make manipulated elements of the environment.

Developing engagement and fantastic fights.

Together with each new ability that becomes available, you get a chance to witness how Jak’s magic keeps on getting stronger as he advances through the whole game’s storyline. Immortals’ fighting is so cool as it is intensely swift and there is active movement on the battlefield, similar to the fantasy dues of Doom. The players need to be good at adapting to the situation and swapping between the magic sets in a flash to defeat various enemy types and pass through difficult encounters.

The series contributes to this legacy with nail-biting battle scenes and awe-inspiring set pieces, for instance, fighting on top of colossi on the high oceans. An immortal game, in turn, is a source of excitement and additional visual and audio effects that bring up players’ adrenaline levels to the maximum.

A failed yet fascinating experiment

Although Immortals of Aveum has its weaknesses, such as the flatness of the story, and imprecisions in the game execution, it is a very interesting single shooter. The first game developed for the new studio, this title shows the ambition of its creators and the creativity level that still needs to be developed to achieve its potential.

By featuring interesting combat, breathtaking visuals and captivating gameplay mechanisms, Immortals of Aveum finds its place as an amazing example of a shooter game. Gamers playing PlayStation Plus now can find the game and catch the excitement of a domain, that was not disclosed before. For Immortals of Aveum be clear as day that the most enchanting journeys may emerge in amazingly uncommon locations.
