Night Call was revealed at E3 last year, but at that point we assumed it would only be arriving for Xbox One. Publisher Raw Fury instead sprung a surprise by revealing the PC version of the game will be releasing next month, and it will be launching on Xbox Game Pass for PC.
The "investigative noire" game takes place in Paris, and the city is in the grip of a serial killer. Players assume the role of a taxi driver working the night shift, and he's the last person to see the killer's final victim when they were still alive. In fact, he's the last person to see any of them alive, because they all took a ride in his taxi before they died. With the police investigation grinding to a halt, they ask you to help in the only way you know how — talk with your passengers, collect clues from their conversations, and stop the killer.
Players need to pick up the right passengers from more than 70 characters and make sure they ask the right questions in the short amount of time they have. To encourage repeated playthroughs, the non-linear story will change. The killer in your first playthrough will likely be different in the next.
The game will be released on Steam and Xbox Game Pass for PC on July 17th. We're unsure whether the game will be Xbox Live enabled. The good news is the Xbox One version will be Live enabled when it's released later this year.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Night Call achievements.
