Today, Square Enix announced The Quiet Man at the Square Enix E3 2018 Video Showcase. While no formal information was released about when the game will be coming to players, the trailer promised more information to come in August and that the game will be released on PS4 and PC.

The trailer showcased an incredibly sleek transition from live-action actors to gameplay during the course of the game’s introduction. The main character coyly taunts his brutish opponents by noting that he cannot hear them before taking them on in a fist fight. From what we’ve seen of the game so far, we know that it will take place in New York City and that the main character appears to be deaf, which is definitely a unique way to portray a character and likely to produce some interesting gameplay concepts.

From a recent press release following the game’s announcement, Square Enix described the concept as such:

THE QUIET MAN takes players beyond sound and words to deliver an immersive story-driven cinematic action experience, which players can complete in one sitting, seamlessly blending high-production live action, realistic CG and pulse-pounding action gameplay.

Square Enix promised more information to come in August, so stay tuned for more information about this intriguing new game to come soon. The Quiet Man is set to release digitally on PS4 and PC.
