Well, it came out of nowhere! After browsing through our Twitter feeds this afternoon we came across ” Stormrite From Studio Kelechi Apakama, an action RPG that could even make its way to Xbox Game Pass.
The developers teased the game a lot in a new tweet. With a PC and Xbox release apparently in the works, the developer is also hinting at something else, “or maybe Game Pass”? As a little extra food for thought here:
Hello, @Xbox Players 👋
This is our indie game, Stormrite!

Fortunately, a Steam page is now available for Stormrite that tells us more about what to expect from the game itself. Here’s a quick developer overview of what the team is aiming to achieve, gameplay-wise, with this open-world action RPG:
Stormrite is a fully single-player third-person experience. Your time will be spent on fascinating quests, exploring the Kingdom of Redrich and using various weapons and combat techniques to eliminate your enemies. The three main fighting styles are melee, ranged, and magic. However, within each of these three categories, there are many weapon/fighting styles to choose from. For example, ranged players can choose a traditional bow and arrow loadout, they can choose a more clumsy but powerful crossbow style, or even a hybrid melee loadout using agility, daggers, and throwing knives.
Magic users can choose to cast spells that directly affect their enemies, summon companions to battle, or manipulate the structure of the world around them. You can also stack spells on top of each other, resulting in some very interesting interactions that can be used to increase your abilities in battle.
Melee users also have plenty of options, with 5 fighting styles (and counting) to choose from and aid in your battles.
As of now, Stormrite doesn’t have a release window other than “soon”, yeah, pretty vague there. Still, after seeing this, we’re definitely curious to see where it goes, especially if the team confirms an Xbox Game Pass release.
What do you think of Stormrite? Excited to see more? Let us know below!
