Stealth-Based Party Game Cutthroat Launches onto Steam to Make Friends into Enemies
Developer Ocumens announces the release of its Assassin's Creed multiplayer-inspired stealth party game Cutthroat.
If you remember playing the multiplayer from previous Assassin’s Creed games, then the concept of indie developer Ocumens’ Cutthroat is likely not completely foreign to you. By the developer’s own admission, the game was inspired by Ubisoft’s online modes. However, with a splash of its own style and a number of different mechanics, the game has set itself apart and made its way to the Steam store.
Cutthroat asks that players adopt one of four playable classes, then to hide amongst masses of similarly-dressed NPCs while looking for the other players. The catch is that whenever you kill someone in the crowd, tombstones appear and can potentially reveal to your opponents where you are.
Each of the playable classes in Cutthroat comes with its own unique abilities, making it important to choose a favorite class and hone your abilities with it to come out ahead of your friends. The game offers both a Free for All Deathmatch mode, as well as a Team Deathmatch mode for both local and network multiplayer games. Of course, if you’re just looking to play the game along, there is also a single-player mode.
Cutthroat is currently available on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux. The game is being sold for a discounted price of $13.49 (10$ off of its original price of $14.99), but it won’t be that way for long, as the promotion ends on November 28.
