Heidelberg 1693 is a challenging 2D action platformer set in a zombie-infested version of 17th century Germany in which the player takes control of one of French King Louis XIV’s famous musketeers. The game adds a layer of tactical combat to the genre by introducing the musketeers’ weapon of choice: the musket. Players will be able to fire a powerful and highly effective musket shot at the same time. The weapon, however, must be used wisely due to its long reset time. Heidelberg 1693 tells its dark story – featuring real-life locations and historical figures – through multiple paths and endings. On PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, Heidelberg 1693 frame rate will run at 120 fps (on compatible displays). On PS5, the game will also use features of the DualSense controller.

Members of the press, bloggers and content creators will have the opportunity to play an early version of Heidelberg 1693 during Gamescom 2022 at the Red Art Games stand located in the Business Area (Hall 3.2, Stand B-052).

About Heidelberg 1693
The year is 1693. War engulfs Europe as France, led by the illustrious King Louis XIV, fights the Grand Alliance. Also known as the Sun King for his luxurious tastes and extravagant appearances, Louis XIV is driven by the belief that the sun – his sun – should shine on all the peoples of the world. While his enemies are far too numerous to count, one stands out as the most dangerous of them all.

This enemy is none other than his own bastard son. Poisoned and left for dead, he emerges from the smoke and ashes of the German battlefields and becomes known as the “moon king“. With nothing but hatred in his heart, he turns to the evil and forbidden sciences in order to build an army the likes of which the world has not seen since the days of Satan’s rebellion.

Now the dead rise from their mass graves, seeking revenge on the king who demanded their heads as he basked in glory. Can you, the Sun King’s bravest musketeer, stop the approaching royal eclipse that never ends?
