Chinese action RPG Xuan-Yuan Sword 7 hits October 29th with a demo available now

I'm slow to trust when it comes to god sims, and I won't beat around the bush—it's mostly because of Godus. But Fata Deum is not Godus, even if it has a similarly iffy name. It's closer to earlier god games, with Black & White seeming like the most obvious muse, though there's a clear attempt to evoke the genre's heyday more broadly. It's getting a Steam Early Access launch next year.
