Ever wanted to play a first-person shooter (FPS) video game that is set in a medieval world? If that’s a yes, then you might find solace in “Blood Ancestors.” It’s a multiplayer team-based game with an eSport style and feel, and it’s set in an interesting medieval fantasy world.
“Blood Ancestors” was developed by Snowpeak Studio using the Unreal Engine 4 developing platform. The multiplayer aspect is designed to work with 4 vs 4 matches where players must defeat their enemies and capture the relics.
While the game is mainly multiplayer focused, there is a decent enough backstory going on here. Apparently, a group of people known as Arhan: The Bloodied, have been forced to leave their world after dabbling in the dark arts.
They even believe themselves superior to the Relic cult, and that’s not something the cult is willing to turn a blind eye to.
Eventually, the group, Arhan: The Bloodied, managed to come across a new world, Vetland. Here, the Light and Darkness factions do battle.
As it stands, then, Arhan promised these factions they could repair Vetland with the power of the Relic, and as such, they are then transported there to be used as an army in the ongoing war.
Light: The fools, they want to use the promised power to repair Vetland.
Darkness: Their true intentions are to use the power to permanently surrender the Light to them. They are also interested in the dark arts of the Bloodied.
