It was inevitable. As sure as Modern Combat 6 is in development somewhere, a new Dungeon Hunter was surely around the corner - and it is.
Dungeon Hunter 5 follows hot on the footsteps of 2013's Dungeon Hunter 4 but with some small improvements that have obviously been pinched from other franchises.
Remember the largely disappointing The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot? That was Ubisoft's attempt at making a free-to-play action-RPG and it actually had a decent concept. You could build your own dungeon or stronghold and fill it with traps and minions, much like in Dungeon Keeper, and then raid fellow player's dungeon, stealing their treasure if you were successful. Well, that whole idea has been thrown into Dungeon Hunter 5.
Now when you come across loot that's not worth selling or keeping, you can use it to buff up your existing loot. That feature seems pretty great, if not already done before. Apparently if you do this enough your gear will change in appearance and new stats will be added. That actually sounds like a pretty neat system.
The visuals have also been vastly improved and, chances are, they'll be improved further on devices that take advantage of Metal. There's no news as to what Dungeon Hunter 5 will cost you but, judging from Gameloft's recent releases, I'm going to gamble and say it'll be free-to-play.
