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.

Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Halo Infinite

Tim Longo, the creative director for Halo Infinite, has left 343 Industries.

According to Kotaku, Longo moved to a different role in 343 Industries a few weeks ago and then left the company for good this week.

In his place, executive producer Mary Olson will take over the responsibilities of the Campaign team as the lead producer. The studio head of Halo Infinite, Chris Lee, will still be in charge of the game’s overall creative vision and production.

Microsoft assured that Longo’s departure would not impact the game’s late 2020 release window and will still launch alongside the next Xbox platform, currently codenamed Project Scarlett.

Longo was also the Creative Director for Halo 5, as well as had previously worked on games such as Star Wars: Republic Commando and 2013’s Tomb Raider.

At E3 2019, Microsoft noted that Halo Infinite‘s Slipstream engine will support future Halo entries and that the game will be a single-player game initially at launch.
