A Pedigree of Talent

GRAVEN boasts an impressive lineup of industry veterans contributing to its development. Character designs come courtesy of Chuck Jones, known for his work on iconic titles like Duke Nukem 3D and Half-Life.

Retro Aesthetics, Modern Gameplay

Release Details

GRAVEN is available now on Xbox Series X|S, priced at £23.99. The game also supports Xbox One, allowing players on the previous generation console to join in the dark fantasy action.

With its blend of retro-inspired gameplay and modern sensibilities, GRAVEN looks set to offer Xbox players a unique FPS experience. Its dark fantasy setting and emphasis on both combat and exploration could make it a standout title for fans of the genre. As always, we’ll reserve final judgment until we’ve had hands-on time with the game, but the pedigree of talent involved and the promising feature set certainly make GRAVEN one to watch.
