Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 are huge video games, promoting 18 million and 40 million copies, respectively. With a pedigree like that, it’s thrilling when members of developer CD Projekt Red splinter off to start out new tasks. One such instance is the brand new game studio Dark Passenger.
Based in Warsaw, Poland, Dark Passenger has a staff consisting of Cyberpunk and Witcher veterans, in addition to new expertise. This group was beforehand often called RealTime Warriors, an skilled CGI studio. “Our long-term support of the game industry inevitably led us to production of our own, original project, which is currently in its first production stage,” the Dark Passenger website reads.
Even if it’s in its early phases, we nonetheless have an excellent bit of information about this primary challenge. The on-line multiplayer game is being constructed on Unreal Engine 5, with each aggressive PvP and cooperative PvE content material. There may even be some stage of randomness to those on-line encounters. “In order to make every game unique and surprising, we’re using advanced, procedural solutions,” the outline says. “While the goal will be the same for all players, every time achieving it will require a different approach, tactics, and taken routes.”
The game itself is about in Feudal Japan, with loyal shinobi and usurpers and assassins all clashing. “We’re building a captivating, dark world full of mysteries, extraordinary characters, and tense conflicts that are consuming the Land of the Cherry Blossom,” Dark Passenger teases. Players will wield a wide range of weapons, from katanas to shurikens to kunai, for each short- and long-range fight. Players will be capable of customise these weapons and practice with mates in a personal dojo. Dark Passenger additionally talks up the “locomotion” of the game, saying that gamers will be capable of pull of feats like operating on arrows within the air and pole-jumping over obstacles.
Dark Passenger’s game sounds fairly promising, although it presently has no identify or launch date — that’s comprehensible because it’s in early phases. It has, nonetheless, been introduced for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC through Steam and the Epic Games Store. We anticipate the identical platforms for The Witcher 4, which is presently in pre-production.
