Developer Jujubee has announced a new game in development called Kursk, a survival adventure game coming to the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The game will explore the Kursk Russian submarine disaster which occurred back on August 12, 2000. According to the story, the ship suffered two major explosions causing it to sink and left a number of sailors stuck in the sixth and ninth compartments of the ship. When the explosions occurred, it took the Russian navy over 6 hours to realize the submarine had sunk and then 16 hours to find it. In the end there were no survivors as the only remaining oxygen cartridge contacted the oily sea water and exploded, killing the remaining survivors.
Kursk will seemingly be exploring the story of those that were stick in the compartments of the ship and will hopefully feature a compelling story at that. According to the developers, “the game will look at the tragedy of the submarine ship from a new angle and will combine first-person action with a heavy focus on a carefully crafted story and engrossing gameplay.”
Jujubee released the first teaser trailer for the game today as well, which you can view just below.
The game is planned to release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC and has not been given a release time-frame at the time of this writing.
