3D Realms has revealed Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, a new 90s style shooter that embraces the timeless elements of games like DOOM, QUAKE, DUKE NUKEM 3D, Unreal and HEXEN. 

So how retro is Wrath? 3D Realms' new shooter will be built using the original Quake engine, a relic of a bygone age that has been lovingly revived by technomancers to create a new shooter for PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. 

Wrath: Aeon of Ruin will not just be playable on modern hardware. The game's Steam listing shows system requirements that go as far back as the Geforce 7950GT and the Pentium 4, but things will be possible with older hardware. Yes, 3D Realms has confirmed that Wrath will be playable on the 3DFX Voodoo 2, a graphics card that boasts a whopping 12MB of memory.

The game will be capped at 666FPS offer multiplayer modes using classic QuakeWorld netcode and support 4-player co-op through both LAN and online play.   
   

    You are Outlander. Once adrift upon the Ageless Sea, you now find yourself on the shores of a dying world. From the consuming darkness emerges a figure cloaked in white, the Shepherd of Wayward Souls, who burdens you with the task of hunting down the remaining Guardians of the Old World. You must journey into the vast gloom to explore ancient ruins, discover forgotten secrets and battle the horrors that lurk within.

Fueled by legendary Quake 1 technology, the veins of WRATH pump with the DNA of revered '90s shooters. WRATH embraces the timeless elements of classic titles such as DOOM, QUAKE, DUKE NUKEM 3D, BLOOD, UNREAL and HEXEN and carries them into the 21st century.

Equipped with an arsenal of 9 weapons of exceptional might and an inventory of 10 powerful artifacts, you must traverse ancient crypts, sunken ruins, corrupted temples and howling forests to bring death to your enemies. But do not underestimate your adversaries, for they are great in power and number. Your mind must be as sharp as your blade if you hope to survive the dangers ahead.

  
Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is currently set to release in Summer 2019, supporting PC and all modern console platforms.
