Console players will get their Hack'n'Slash this year! RAW - Realms of Ancient War releases today on consoles (Xbox LIVE® and the European PlayStation®Network). The game will release in the US PlayStation®Network on September 25th. Accompanying this release is an explosive launch trailer, immersing players in the intense and spectacular battles of RAW - Realms of Ancient War.

A true and pure Hack'n'Slash that offers intense and challenging combat all while displaying an impressive number of enemies onscreen, RAW - Realms of Ancient War brings players to a continent ruined by a never-ending, violent war.

Take control of a powerful Warrior, a dark Sorcerer, or a Rogue master of stealth and plunge into an action-packed quest! The world of RAW leads players alone or in 2-player co-op through many diverse levels in every corner of the continent.

Along their quest, experience gained from violent battles fought as well as weapons and magic items looted from the lifeless bodies of opponents will allow players to develop the skills of their chosen character. Players will learn new powers and spells ever more devastating, some of which when mastered will allow players to inflict tremendous amounts of damage and eradicate several dozen enemies at once, imperative for enemies that rally in hordes to fight!

All the power granted will never be more than enough to exterminate outnumbering enemies. Thanks to the special ability of 'incarnation', players will even be able to take direct control of the body of the most powerful foes, seeding discord and destruction right at the heart of enemy armies!

Invite a friend to join in an exciting co-op mode where coordination and teamwork are essential ingredients of victory!

RAW - Realms of Ancient War is now available on Xbox LIVE® (Europe and US) and PlayStation®Network (Europe). It will be released on September 25th on the US PlayStation®Network. The game will also be released for download on PC on October 4th.

About RAW - Realms of Ancient War

RAW – Realms of Ancient War is an explosive Hack’n’Slash for PlayStation® Network, Xbox LIVE® and PC developed by Wizarbox, taking you on a continent ravaged by a war that raged ten years earlier.

The four Kingdoms of Men, Elves and Dwarves lay in ruins, preyed on by raiders and looters. In this chaos, a new, unknown threat is looming... To discover its true nature, the kingdoms sent detachments to investigate, a dangerous mission from which no one returned. But what about you? You, who were in the wrong place at the wrong time...

Take control of a powerful Warrior, a dark Sorcerer or a Rogue master of stealth, and plunge into a grand quest full of action! The world of R.A.W. leads you, alone or in 2-player co-op, through many levels as rich as varied in every corner of the continent.

Along your quest, the experience gained through the violent battles you will fight and the weapons and magic items you will loot on the lifeless bodies of your opponents will allow you to develop the power of your chosen character. You will learn new powers and spells ever more devastating, some of which, when mastered, will allow you to inflict tremendous damage and eradicate several dozens of enemies at once… as they will often rally in hordes to fight you!

All the power you will be granted will not be too much to exterminate your outnumbering enemies. Thanks to your gift of incarnation, you will even be able to take direct control of the body of your most powerful foes, seeding discord and destruction right at the heart of enemy armies!

Invite a friend to join your adventure in an exciting co-op mode, where coordination and teamwork are essential ingredients of victory!

RAW - Realms of Ancient War is now available on Xbox LIVE® (Europe and US) and PlayStation®Network (Europe). It will be released on September 25th on the US PlayStation®Network. The game will also be released for download on PC on October 4th.
