Asmodev’s Genre-Bending “Priest Simulator” Coming to Steam PC in 2022
Game publisher Ultimate Games S.A. recently announced that Priest Simulator will be coming in 2022 to Steam PC via Early Access, with console ports to follow at a later date – that’d be PS4, PS5, Xbone, SeXbox, and Nintendo Switch, to be precise.
Developed by Polish studio Asmodev, Priest Simulator is a genre-blending adventure combining aspects of hack’n’slash, FPS, simulation, renovator and sandbox genres.
Players take on the role of Orlok, who is described as “a cunning vampire who accidentally becomes a priest in the village of San de Ville.”
Here’s the official breakdown of Priest Simulator from Ultimate Games:
Asmodev’s production will offer a total of 100 different missions to complete. The creators focus on a varied gameplay, which will include, for example, fighting shatanists, caring for parishioners and exploring the local village. The game will also allow players to, among others, administer the sacraments, perform exorcisms, and raise funds for the needs of the church.
