Maximum Games has announced that Torus Games, a Melbourne based studio is working on a new game set within the world of Beast Quest, the best selling book series, which has released over 120 different books to date with more than 17 million copies sold globally.
Evoking the same sense of sprawling wonder found in the books, Beast Quest will take players on an epic journey to save the mythical land of Avantia from ruin. Dark magic has corrupted the towering, noble creatures of the realm, which players must overcome in action-packed boss battles - dodging, blocking and countering attacks while chaining combos and unleashing allies to turn the tide of combat.
Meanwhile, spectacular environments with rich open-level design offer daring heroes opportunities to discover challenging quests, powerful upgrades, and ancient secrets hiding just beyond the horizon.
"The high-fantasy setting, characters and lore of Beast Quest are the perfect foundation for a modern adventure game on consoles," said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games. "We're building a gorgeous world true to this imaginative series that millions have come to love while giving fans of adventure games everywhere a unique experience to enjoy."
