Thunder Lotus Games has kicked off the Closed Beta​ phase for Sundered ​with a dramatic new trailer, titled “Resist,” revealed by Sony.

Showcasing footage from the highly anticipated action-horror game’s heretofore unseen first gameplay region and spectacular boss fight, Sundered​’s Resist trailer offers a tantalizing glimpse at the content awaiting the game’s Beta players this week.

The Resist trailer juxtaposes background narration from General Waters, a fallen military leader from the Sundered’s ​Valkyrie faction, and images of the protagonist, Eshe, exploring the game’s first areas and confronting its foes. The trailer builds to a reveal Sundered​’s stirring first boss fight against Xea'sh'kaebt, a corrupted priest from the game’s rival faction, the Eschatons.

“The Resist Trailer puts Sundered’s ​ ​best foot forward,” said Will Dubé, Creative Director and President of Thunder Lotus Games in a prepared statement. “The new region we’re revealing features some of the best work our team has ever produced, and I’m excited that so many of our fans will get to experience it in the Beta.”

Notably, the entirety of Sundered​ ​’s 4,600 Kickstarter backers will be given access to the Closed Beta, the final major development phase until the game’s release on Windows and Linux in July 2017. The Closed Beta begins on May 16th, 2017.

    At the end of it all, yes. There were quite a few things in this installment that could have driven me batty — had I allowed them to do so. The beautiful reality of Syberia 3 is that I didn’t need to know what happened beforehand in the franchise. If you play for release, for freedom that you don’t have in a normal, boring life — and if you can look past some rough handling --  Syberia 3 is for you.
