PARIS – September 12, 2012 –Console players will get their Hack’n’Slash fill this year! RAW – Realms of Ancient War is getting ready for a prompt arrival next week on consoles. It will be available on September 19th on Xbox LIVE® and the European PlayStation®Network, and September 25th on the American PlayStation®Network. The PC version is planned for a slightly later release (October 4th to be exact).
A true and pure Hack’n’Slash that offers intense and challenging combat all while displaying an impressive number of enemies onscreen, RAW multiplies fun and visual spectacle in cooperative mode. In this co-op mode, two players may join forces to face hordes of monsters, some of whom show their menacing faces in today’s video!
In this great co-op adventure, friends may join any time in the game to lend a hand in assaulting monster hordes of growing strength! Cooperative play maximizes team strengths and optimizes all attack tactics. While a Warrior distracts the enemy in melee battle, the Wizard is free to cast his most powerful spells in safety! Good coordination will be required, as the monsters in co-op mode will be stronger than the monsters of single player mode!
RAW – Realms of Ancient War will be released on Xbox LIVE® and European PlayStation®Network on September 19th, American PlayStation®Network on September 25th, and PC on October 4th

About R.A.W. – Realms of Ancient War
R.A.W. – 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 two-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!
