Blankhans GmbH, an international veteran-run remote-only games studio, announced today their debut game – Coreborn: Nations of the Ultracore. Based on the vibrant pen and paper universe of Ultracore, created by co-founder, designer, and writer Hauke Gerdes, it was first popularized via Rocket Beans TV.
The announcement story trailer and the comic book dropped today. Fans of pen and paper games can also download and play the first Coreborn P&P Adventure: Bandits of Pipers Whistle on the official Coreborn website, coming soon to virtual tabletop platforms.
Coreborn, initially coming to Early Access on PC, will be a free-to-play, cross-platform social survival sandbox game. It is being built on three main gameplay pillars:
- Survival sandbox (the world of Tormentosia) – Gather resources, craft tools, and weapons, build settlements, all alongside your friends.
- Adventures (diverse action experiences) – Prove yourself as a mighty adventurer in the wondrous world of Tormentosia. Use your skills to master mini-games such as horde mode, dungeons, and big boss fights.
- Social hub (Coreheim, the location of the Ultracore) – Meet fellow adventurers in the grand community of Coreheim. Trade, socialize or simply hang out where the wonders of Tormentosia all come together.
The game takes place in Tormentosia, a land shattered like broken glass, previously divided by its different races in a state of persistent conflict. Then came the imminent destruction of their world as Sorgoth, Devourer of Worlds, invaded the realm. Facing his calamitous frenzy, the six remaining kingdoms united their power, each providing essential resources to defend all living creatures with a new kind of technology – the Ultracore.
