The story of Pascal’s Wager
Long ago, the sun mysteriously disappeared, which brought about a Dark Mist that spread all across the land. Soon enough, gargantuan beings known as the “Colossus” appeared and brought light with them where they stood, providing humanity with sanctuaries against the unending darkness.
After the passing of Millennia, the juggernauts showed signs of an unknown illness and one by one they began to fall. Terrance and his band of couriers set out on a perilous journey to uncover the truth about the dark world they live in, meeting helpful friends and malicious foes along the way.
Players will take on the role of one of the couriers as they embark on a challenging third-person adventure that utilizes action-RPG elements and mechanics. Any fan of From Software’s Souls games can easily tell that Pascal’s Wager borrows heavily from the likes of Dark Souls and Bloodborne when it comes to setting and general aesthetic, but the game does add enough in the way of varying combat styles and a wide cast of characters that help it stand out.
Gamers will be able to play as five different characters, each with their own distinct move set and playstyle which gives the title an added layer of depth and strategy. If you’re not a fan of punishing video games that require you to “git gud”, Pascal’s Wager: Definition Edition has a casual mode for gamers that aren’t as hardcore.
With superb indie titles like Hades and Disco Elysium taking the gaming world by storm, Pascal’s Wager: Definitive Edition is surely worth a look if you’re a fan of the Souls games and want to give the little guys a chance. In a similar vein, if you’re a fan of moody RPGs, maybe the Diablo II remaster is up your alley!
