It’s time for a road trip, baby, as Dustborn from Red Thread Games gears up for a 2021 launch on Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC.
A brand new narrative action-adventure game that is coming to Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC, Dustborn is a story-driven, road-tripping action-adventure about hope, friendship, love, robots — and the power of words. Red Thread Games, the award-winning studio behind Dreamfall Chapters and Draugen, announced Dustborn in a world premiere at the GamesRadar+ Future Games Show, yet if you missed it, you need not worry – it’s right below these words.
Set in a colourful and perilous post-infodemic world inspired by graphic novels, a band of friends must cross a divided continent, carrying a precious cargo from California to Nova Scotia. You play as Pax: ex-con, outcast, con-artist, and Anomal with superhuman powers fuelled by disinformation. Your job: to transport a mysterious cargo across a Divided States of America. But this is not a one-woman job. The fanatical Puritans are on your tail, the authoritarian Justice is in your way, and you’re four-months pregnant. Joined by a motley band of misfits with their own weird powers, you’ll overcome the challenges that stand in your way…through manipulation, subterfuge, and force.
Key features of Dustborn on Xbox, PlayStation and PC include:
- YOU JUST CAN’T WITHOUT YOUR CREW: Recruit and manage a motley mob of outcasts and misfits with weird powers, compelling personal stories, and conflicting personalities, and manage your relationships through an expressive, branching dialogue system.
- WIELD WEAPONISED WORDS: Words have power. Use weaponised words (fuelled by disinformation) in combat and conversations, to fight enemies, manipulate strangers, and motivate friends.
- THE ROMANCE OF THE ROAD TRIP: On the road you’ll explore new places, take on unexpected assignments, recruit crew members and fight your pursuers. Travel undercover as a folk-punk-rock band, and keep up appearances by learning original songs around the campfire…before proving yourself in an epic Battle of the Bands!
The road trip in Dustborn will start in 2021 when it launches on Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC. If you wish to wishlist it, then heading to the Steam page will sort you out. Let us know what you think of Dustborn too – the comments section is down below.
