Today Square Enix released some gameplay screenshots of the upcoming game The Quiet Man, that was teased at E3 2018.
Those are the first nine screenshots in the gallery at the bottom of the post, followed by a new piece of key artwork created for the game. The screenshots show both combat and some of the environments that we’ll be able to explore.
We also get some hints on the story of the game, which you can read in the rather unusual form just below.
Interestingly, the messages are sealed with the insignia of a bird, but not much is known at the moment.
We do read about a female bird trapped into a cage guarded by a tiger, with another bird who cannot hear (presumably the protagonist) observing the scene. Pairing that with the key artwork, it’s possible that those metaphors represent the three characters portrayed. Looking at the screenshots, there seems to be stalking involved, which would match the idea of a caged bird who thought she was in the open sky.
One last piece of information includes the names of the characters. The protagonist is named Dane, the lady is Lala, the masked man is simply defined “Mask,” the man wearing the trench coat is Lieutnant Ash, the elegant dude in suit and tie is Taye, and the two gangsters are Marcelo and Peter.
The quiet man is set to launch for PS4 and PC, but we don’t yet know when that will happen.
