Cygames’ Project Awakening: Arise maintains beauty while flaunting epic scale that is normally only seen in titles like Monster Hunter, and it might be dropping a demo soon.
A European PEGI rating for a trial version of the game was spotted (and then removed) a few days ago. Thankfully, Gematsu was able to grab a screenshot before the rating and Project Awakening: Arise trial description were taken down. The description reads: “This trial version will allow players to get a taste of the combat and action available from Project Awakening, an action role-playing game featuring photorealistic graphics.

So far, all we know about the game comes from its impressive first trailer. The footage from developer Cygames features not only some stunning graphics, but Dark Souls-like combat in a Monster Hunter-styled scenario. The end of the trailer, however, promises more than just a single creature to take down.
Having been originally announced at a Sony Tokyo Game Show (TGS) presentation from last year, it looks like this trial period could line up to release during this year’s TGS when it begins later next week.
With not much time left in the year, Project Awakening: Arise is running out of space to make its originally promised release window of 2019. Hopefully Cygames will be able to give us more information on its new action RPG next week.
