First-person Lovecraftian cyberpunk adventure Transient has a release window. Stormling Studios and Iceberg Interactive‘s game will launch for PC and consoles next year. We’re not sure on an exact date yet.
Transient takes place in a far-future post-apocalyptic society consisting of the last remnants of humankind. An unspecified apocalyptic event killed most of the species and drove the rest into Domed City Providence, an enclosed citadel intended to shield humanity from the harsh outside world. Domed City Providence is, of course, not all it appears. Hacker Randolph Carter is on a routine mission when he accidentally uncovers a horrifying truth and must protect his mind and his species from untold horrors. You can check out a trailer for Transient below:
The trailer is just a teaser, so it doesn’t give too much of Transient‘s gameplay away. Stormling Studios describes the game as a “first-person 3D adventure” which blends Lovecraftian horror themes with a cyberpunk aesthetic. It’ll involve switching between the real world and what Stormling describes as “artificially created worlds”. Since Carter is a hacker (and not the writer he was in the original Lovecraft stories), expect this to come up in gameplay.
Stormling is also promising “ominous but lush graphics” created using Unreal Engine 4. There will also be an atmospheric soundtrack to accompany you as you explore Domed City Providence, as well as plenty of secrets and Easter eggs to discover. Looks like we’re settling into a fairly combat-free first-person exploration game with a spooky bent.
Transient launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2020. If you can’t wait for more info about the game, you can wishlist it on Steam right now. You can also follow publisher Iceberg Interactive on Twitter, Facebook, and Discord for more updates.
