Developer Still Running and publisher Maximum Entertainment announced this week that their upcoming action-adventure title ‘Morbid: The Lords of Ire’ will launch on the 17th of May, moving up from its previously announced release date. The game will launch on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, the Nintendo Switch, and Xbox consoles (Xbox One support revealed as of this update!).

A demo is currently available on Steam and physical versions of ‘Morbid: The Lords of Ire’ will also be heading to PlayStation 5 & Nintendo Switch—with pre-orders available now at all good retailers including Signature Edition Games.

Risk insanity in the gruesome slash-em-up Morbid: The Lords of Ire, with brutal combat and souls-like elements. Defeat the five Lords of Ire as you fight for your life across tortured landscapes, rending the evil Gahars of their flesh-bound forms.

Face off against hordes of hideous creatures with furious hack and slash combat, testing your mental and physical resolve in a hellscape that threatens your very sanity. Loot and scavenge unique weapons, imbue them with runes to alter their abilities or perks, grant blessings to garner unique perks and take on the grotesque Lords and their minions.

Sequel to the studio’s smash hit ‘Morbid: The Seven Acolytes’, the critically acclaimed isometric souls-like that originally launched in 2020, ‘Morbid: The Lords of Ire’ invites players to risk madness venturing through a revolting hell from an all-new 3D perspective.

Building on the sanity system from ‘Morbid: The Seven Acolytes’, your choices will send you down a path of Enlightenment or Insanity.

To reach Enlightenment will grant incredible resilience to your stamina, while fortifying your Rage Breaker attacks to stop enemies in their tracks and usher in the mighty Finisher. Deal more poise damage and battle harder, for longer.

Descend into the depths of madness and Insanity will fill you with an unrelenting power, dealing more health damage than ever before. But be warned, you’ll also take more damage as you frenzy against the hideous creatures in the lands of Ire.

‘Morbid: The Lords of Ire’ is a continuation and reinvention of the critically acclaimed isometric Souls-like ARPG ‘Morbid: The Seven Acolytes’ from all-new 3D perspective.

The heroic Striver returning once more to do battle with horrific creatures in a dark and twisted world of pain and suffering.

Slaughter hideous creatures using a range of vicious weapons and attacks from finishers, to guard breaks and the powerful Spectre Blaster, eviscerating everything in your path.

Battle your way through the five levels across the lands of Ire – horrific realms populated by five unique factions, from wintry mountains to rotten cities and beyond. Reaching enlightenment or succumbing to insanity can grant incredible power, but at great personal risk, dynamically changing how you perceive the world and its many threats…
