Check Out The Sinking City’s Detailed Investigative Gameplay in New Trailer

The Sinking City Detective Gameplay Trailer

Frogwares has published a new trailer for its upcoming Lovecraftian game The Sinking City.

The new trailer shows off the game’s detailed investigative gameplay, demonstrating how players will solve crimes and uncover mysteries.

The trailer reveals that the developer aims to “put the detective experience first,” omitting any form of hand-holding to the player. The game will never tell the player how to approach or advance a quest, including which locations and suspects to follow.

Players are also able to use the police records to solve cases, including a newspaper archive. Evidence is pieced together in the player’s “mind palace”—a gameplay feature borrowed from Frogwares’s Sherlock Holmes games. However, unlike the Sherlock Holmes titles, The Sinking City does not feature a right or wrong answer, so players may potentially blame the wrong suspect.

The Sinking City was originally scheduled to release on March 21, 2019. However, a recent rumour indicates that the game’s release date has been pushed back until at least May. The omission of a release date from the gameplay trailer supports this delay, but the developer is yet to comment.

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 four years with no way 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, Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
