Today, developer Odd Tales and publisher Raw Fury announced during Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference that the aforementioned’s first project, a cinematic adventure game called The Last Night, is coming to PC and Mac in 2018 — as well as now the Xbox One.
According to the developer, The Last Night is a 2.5D cinematic game that forges ahead “on the path established by the greats such as Another World, Flashback and the Oddworld series.” The game is set in a “rich post-cyberpunk world,” and is said to be inspired by Blade Runner and Ghost Shell.
The game takes place in an open-world, boasting 4 four unique districts, all with distinct cultures, architecture, and industries. You will be able to travel between district via taxis, ferries, or monorails, all in a “living” and “simulated” world, dense with crowds of people all doing their own stuff.
As for gameplay, it is described a combination of action and infiltration that varies, and includes things like driving down epic highways, flying drones, hacking androids to do your dirty work, and trying to remain undetected.
Lastly, the developer details the game’s characters as “diverse” and “complex,” who you will interact with meaningful, branching dialogue. The game will also contain many multiple-choice events, where you will have to choose from a variety of different responses that include running away, arguing to gain more time, or pulling out your gun.
Previously, the game had been reported to ship on “consoles,” so it’s possible more versions of the game will be announced later. Below, you can check out a new trailer which accompanied today’s news:
