American Fugitive Gameplay Trailer Promises Old School Grand Theft Auto-Inspired Action

American Fugitive

American Fugitive looks like the alternate timeline version of a Grand Theft Auto that always kept its top-down point of view.

Fallen Tree Games put together a new gameplay trailer to showcase destructible environments, unique characters, and a “massive open world.” Watch the minute-and-a-half trailer down below.

Fallen Tree’s prison-escape love letter is set in the 1980s and puts players in the shoes of Will Riley. Publisher Curve Digital promises “dramatic storytelling and epic car-chase mayhem.”

The classic Grand Theft Auto connections are uncanny to say the least. Thankfully, American Fugitive looks fresh and inventive, even with the clear inspirations. The description on the video gives a general idea of what single-players can expect.

“The game offers a new 3D top-down single-player experience where you can STEAL, DRIVE and FIGHT.”

OnlySP’s “Three Single-Player Games to Watch Out for in May 2019” piece highlighted American Fugitive as one of this month’s honorable mentions.

American Fugitive launches on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One on May 21.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
