Horror-inspired fighting game will be playable at EVO 2017

Developer AOne Games has announced that they will showcase Omen of Sorrow, an upcoming fighting game inspired by classic horror at EVO 2017 this weekend.

Omen of Sorrow will have a playable demo at booth #110, and will have attendees able to try out the games mechanics and test out the latest combat engine.

Here is a quick overview.

Omen of Sorrow is a classic 2D, four-button fighting game, with Unreal Engine 4 powered graphics, a cast of 12 characters inspired by classical horror, fantasy and mythology, and a battle system designed from the ground up to leverage player skill, rather than stats or random chance, featuring deep combat mechanics that favor movement and spacing over tight execution to provide an engaging experience for pros and newcomers alike!

Using a netcode technique called rollback (GGPO), we’ll provide you with a near-lagless online experience. You’ll also be able to fight your friends in Local Multiplayer; having someone in the same physical space when playing a game is a very different experience than playing with them over the internet, you know that, and so do we.


  • ☠ Master its hardcore combat mechanics
  • Compete Online
  • ☠ Fight your friends in Local Multiplayer.
  • ☠ Choose among 12 iconic characters from myth and legend.

Omen of Sorrow will release on Playstation 4.
