Underworld Ascendant Prototype Gameplay Footage at PC Gamer and Polygon

The last three biweekly updates for OtherSide Entertainment's Underworld Ascendant were not very interesting, and I had assumed that the much-awaited gameplay footage was still a ways off. For that reason, I was quite surprised to wake up this morning to discover that said footage had suddenly appeared on PC Gamer and Polygon.

At PC Gamer, Paul Neurath and narrative designer Joe Fielder were guests on the site's weekly livestreamed podcast, where they chatted with their hosts about stealth games, open world games, roleplaying games and Undertale, before finally getting to Underworld Ascendant at around 1:19:25. Polygon, meanwhile, just got the raw footage, so that's what I'll post here. The footage features a rather talkative female rogue-mage on a mission to steal some sort of Dwarven artifact, who finds herself pursued by a fearsome Shadow Beast. If you'd like a play-by-play description from the developers (and without the Polygon guy's annoying opening comments) I do recommend watching the PC Gamer stream as well. Anyway, check it out:


Not bad for a game that's just seven months in development. For comparison, we saw our first serious footage of Wasteland 2 after ten months. I assume the voice acting in the final release won't be quite as...contextual.
