Xbox One owners can look forward to a new console-exclusive title in 2019. Announced just a little while ago at Microsoft’s Inside Xbox: X018 Special, Void Bastards is described as a strategy-shooter. This title, directed by the development director of Bioshock of System Shock 2, takes inspiration from both of those games. From the brief gameplay footage showcased in the announcement trailer, this appears to be a first-person shooter that takes place on a space-station. It also seems to involve some form of crafting mechanic and another type of gameplay that sort of resembles FTL. The art style and sense of humor shown in the trailer remind this writer of a cross between Jazzpunk and Borderlands. No hard release date has been announced yet, but it was stressed that the game will be available on Xbox Game Pass the same day that the retail version hits store shelves. There will also be a Steam version available. Please stay tuned for more details as they are made available.
UPDATE: An official tweet from Humble Bundle indicates that this title will release in “early” 2019.
