For those niche group of people that always said they wanted a Tarantino video game, this news is for you. Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is here to celebrate the iconic film’s 25th anniversary in game form. The top down shooter will feature everyone’s favorite misters and will release later this year on Steam and Xbox One.
Much like the movie, Blood Days will focus around heists and the thieves working together. There are definitely strong Hotline Miami vibes here with a similar focus on strategy and blood-soaked killing. However, the game has a ‘Time Back’ mechanic that allows you to rewind time and change up your tactics if they’re not working.
Levels also feature interaction and support from all the different Dogs. You’ll have to support your teammates with cover fire and defensive positioning if you want to make off with the loot.
The press release claims that the game will follow the plot of the movie through these missions, but it didn’t mention if it would contain arguments about tipping. There’s also no word about torturing your fellow Reservoir Dogs.
Bloody Days also features:
- Unique time-bending action: Employ a highly addictive strategic approach in tension-filled robberies and shootouts, controlling each character for overlapping bursts of time;
- Six Infamous Movie Characters: Control Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, and Mr. White in a series of heists;
- Heists and surprises based on the film: Experience adrenaline-filled heists with the Reservoir Dogs crew.
No release date or price has been given. However, since 2017 means that it’s been a quarter of a century since the game released, it will be coming out this year. Hopefully the final product ends up being a ‘bloody good’ shooter with some nice strategic elements as opposed to a franchise cash grab.
