Annapurna Interactive has revealed Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth, a brand new story set between the unique Blade Runner movie and Blade Runner 2049.
Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth is ready after the occasions of the Black Out, posing a query of what function a Blade Runner has if there aren’t any extra Replicants to hunt. The trailer’s voice over reads:
“Numerous folks misplaced issues within the Black Out.
I used to be fortunate, I simply misplaced a job.
However now they need me again.”
It’s actually a stunning and visually arresting trailer, and evidently you’ll be exploring and looking by way of the previous. Extra particulars in regards to the sport will probably be coming within the months forward, so I suppose we’ll simply sit and watch for that.
Or possibly we’ll should revisit the earlier online game diversifications of Blade Runner? The primary crack of the Voight-Kampff take a look at was in 1985 with a sport for ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amstrad. It had a loosely comparable story arc to the film as you seek out replicants which have made their approach to Earth. Sinclair Consumer referred to as the sport pretentious and described the graphics as plodding, so it’s not nice.
Considerably higher was the 1997 level and click on journey Blade Runner by Westwood Studios, which grew a cult following massive sufficient to justify a remastered Enhanced Version launch by Nightdive Studios in 2022. Sadly this remaster was not met with beneficial views by players, as the sport in contrast poorly to the unique launch run by way of ScummVM.
So… Annapurna don’t have a very excessive bar to beat with this one. I hope they do, although.
