Red Thread Games has announced the release date for its upcoming noir mystery game Draugen.

Draugen will be available on Steam and GOG on May 29, 2019. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will get their hands on the game at a later date.

To celebrate the release date announcement, Red Thread has released character biographies of protagonist Edward Charles Harden and his ward Lissie. While Edward is a quiet man who lives “alone with the dusty furniture,” Lissie is described as an “adventurous and spirited young woman.”

Red Thread released a story trailer for Draugen last month, showing off more of the game’s characters in action.

Draugen is a first-person ‘Fjord Noir’ set in the beautiful country of Norway in the 1920s. The game was first announced in 2014entered full production at the end of 2015, and received few updates until Red Thread released the first look at the title in November last year. The game is planned to be a standalone title with a self-contained story, not the beginning of a franchise.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over six years with no means of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
