Now, you might or might not have heard of the Lone Wolf series from the late game designer Joe Dever, but it’s a popular gamebook series back in the 80s-early 90s. Back in 2013, it received a video game adaptation titled Joe Dever's Lone Wolf, which unfortunately went largely under the radar. Now, London-based studio VisionizAR aims to revive the franchise in a brand new form with its upcoming release Lone Wolf AR.

As the title implies, Lone Wolf AR is an augmented-reality RPG that will reportedly be available on both Android and iOS and at launch. The game was originally revealed last year, but now we finally get to see more of it through a new trailer. Check it out below:

The idea is pretty cool: You get to play as a character from the Lone Wolf universe and will be able to interact with various things such as puzzles, monsters, and bosses wherever you wish. VisionizAR also says that there will be “cooperative Boss Fights with other players" as well, so we can expect some social elements.

Moreover, to make sure that the game stays as close to the source material as possible, the studio has also teamed up with Ben Dever, son of Joe Dever, who is working on new books based on the detailed notes left by his father.

“It’s a childhood dream come true to be working with such a beloved fantasy series alongside Ben," said Rene Batsford, founder of VisionizAR. “Like many children at the time, I found Lone Wolf captivating and it truly was a forerunner to modern-day interactive adventures. I wanted to tap into the rich and detailed world that Joe Dever created and apply a modern twist using mobile-based augmented reality. Lone Wolf lends itself perfectly to location-based gaming."
