Publisher Big Sugar and developer DoubleMoose have announced their new “brinepunk” shooter Abyssus for PC (via Steam) at this year’s Gamescom, set for a 2023 release.
Here’s a new trailer:
Here’s a rundown on the game, via its Steam page:
As a late 19th Century brinepunk mercenary-for-hire, you are employed to explore the subaquatic ruins of an ancient civilization. However, your mission of discovery turns to one of survival as the sunken kingdom’s corrupted inhabitants make it clear that interlopers are not welcome.
Wield an array of exotic, adaptable weaponry, and fortify yourself with mysterious, enhancing powers as you engage in a seemingly perpetual battle against the watery domain’s ranks of mutated guardians.
Abyssus is the latest creation from Swedish developer DoubleMoose, which was founded by ex-developers from Coffee Stain and Ubisoft.
- USE OUTLANDISH GUNS TO KILL OUTLANDISH ENEMIES – Equip yourself with human brinepunk firearms or strange, ancient weapons as you prepare to face foes unlike anything you’ve ever encountered before.
