If you ever wondered what Hotline Miami would be like with a cyberpunk look, an upcoming indie title has you covered.
Cyberpunk stealth action RPG, Disjunction, will launch on January 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on Steam and GOG. Publisher Sold Out and developer Ape Tribe Games made the announcement in a new trailer released today.
Players will tackle the streets of 2048 New York using three different characters. Each one brings a unique set of abilities, upgrades, and talents to customize the playstyle to their liking. The game features stealth-action gameplay where players can decide to sneak through each level or go all out with guns blazing. The trailer also reveals the player will dictate how the story unfolds with their decisions having real consequences.
2048. Following the arrest of a prominent community leader, New York stands in disarray. Suspicions and allegations run rife throughout the city, as an insidious drug known as ‘Shard’ spreads throughout the underworld. With the city’s future in doubt, three hardened citizens rise to discover the truth and uncover a conspiracy threatening to alter the city’s fate.
Inspired by tech noir classics, Disjunction is an intensely atmospheric stealth-action RPG that follows a trinity of interwoven narratives, and features a reactive story where your actions have real, persistent consequences. Choose your playstyle and use an arsenal of futuristic tech, cybernetic upgrades and weapons to blast through levels in brutally fast combat, or take a silent approach by using stealth and non-lethal takedowns to leave without a trace. Nobody needs to die… unless you decide they must.
The game was supposed to release sometime in 2019 before being delayed. While the game is not currently available for preorder, you can wishlist it to be notified when it releases.
