Announced at X018 today is the new, stylish, strategy-shooter Void Bastards
. Inspired by both BioShock
and System Shock
, and developed by those games' co-director, Void Bastards
follows the path of a small team of former convicts as they attempt to escape numerous derelict ships in the Sargasso Nebula. You can check out the launch trailer below.
With multiple characters (or criminals) to choose from, players will be required to scheme up various plans to survive the creatures roaming the galaxy, from greedy and merciless pirates to large and very deadly space whales. Craft your weapons and scavenge for food before you become a meal for the dangers that still remain on the ships. When you fail, select another convict to take your place and continue the fight where you left off. Your choices will define whether your team of Void Bastards make it out alive.Void Bastards
will be coming to Xbox sometime in 2019. Furthermore, the game will launch into Game Pass on release.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Void Bastards achievements.
