Underworld Ascendant’s release date has been pushed back somewhat, but you’ll still be able to dungeon crawl the Stygian Abyss later this year.

We have some bad news and good news about Underworld Ascendant, the Kickstarted spiritual sequel to Ultima Underworld. Unfortunately, it won’t be launching in time the September release date promised back at E3. The good news? You’ll only have to wait two months. (Thanks Eurogamer.)

Ascendant is an action-RPG set in the Stygian Abyss, an underdark setting introduced in the Ultima Underworld series. Players will be able to explore a massive dungeon filled with competing factions, roving monsters, and deadly traps. The game emphasizes non-linear progression, which means you can explore its game world and complete a complex skill tree using whatever methods you’d like.

Underworld Ascendant comes courtesy of Otherside Entertainment, who are also hard at work on the System Shock remake. It will launch for PC on November 15, 2018.
