Description

After the death of your father, you are sent to live with your uncle, Andrus outside the snowy town of Madrigal. Once you arrive at his house, he tells you about magic and his past. You learn of Harbinger, an ancient warrior who sealed the Revenants (demon kings) in the well of souls which are now breaking free and returning to the World. The game is advanced as you are assigned quests, which are recorded in your journal. Not all quests need to be completed in order to finish the game.

Soulbringer is an action RPG. Melee combat consists of detailed moves, which can be chosen by the player: high and low slashes, strikes, etc. The player can create combos with two or more such actions, and execute them. The main character also specializes in magic (including elemental schools), and can fight with weapons and cast spells at the same time.
