Duke Nukem creator 3D Realms is stuck in the past. That’s not an insult or a criticism, it’s literally how the developer has decided to make games. After debuting Ion Maiden last year – a well-received retro FPS made in the original Build Engine used for 90s games like Duke Nukem 3D – the studio told me its newest game is ready for the next big technological leap available: full 3D models.
Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, is a brand new, full-fledged FPS made in the Quake Engine. I’m not talking about 2017’s Quake Champions, I literally mean the engine made in 1996 for the very first Quake. It hasn’t been used in a major game release in roughly 20 years. And not only is Wrath coming to PC sometime this summer, it will actually be making its way to Xbox One, PS4, and even Nintendo Switch early next year as well.
