  1. it’s surely goodlooking, the city is from the guy behind city 17, and you can feel it

  2. Glad I’m not the only one who thinks that. Last year I played L.A. Noire which was a great detective story. To their credit, Team Bondi did an amazing job in creating a real-looking 1940s Los Angeles but the gameplay did not take advantage of the setting unfortunately. Unless you’re a fan of cartography or city history, there wasn’t really a reason to explore the LA area. Open world games need to have fresh content otherwise they can become stale and gratuitous.

  4. i cant wait for this to come out!

  5. love how they say that the art style is new, looks like bioshock

  6. aoo ao ao that flute and synth orchestra throbs my heart and brings tears to my eyes x,)..

  7. Is this a opened world game or just a level objective. ?

  8. I’m pretty sure it only says close quarters because the maps are inside enclosed buildings.
    Don’t own it myself though, so its just a thought.
    Just a thought.

  9. Seriously boruu, I’ve never even heard of Dieselpunk before.
    Makes me think of some “hardcore” gangster chugging gasoline.

  10. Why.
    Because it haves a sword?
    Shit if that’s why I’d make it more appropriate.
    Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.
    At least some guys at Arkane made that.

  11. You speak the word of gods my son.
    Continue living righteously.

  12. Same Art director of Half-Life 2, so I’m not surprised, I’m feeling that nostalgia from it.

  13. “just glue some gears on it”

  14. Afraid not.

  15. According to my English teacher, it is.
