Dark Passenger, a new Polish development studio based in Warsaw made up of industry veterans who have worked on projects such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, officially came out on July 25th.
After five years of creating animations, movie sequences, characters and worlds for other games, both addicted and triple A, under the name of RealTime Warriors, the studio decided to take the plunge by transforming into Dark Passenger and kicking off the pre-production of his first feature.
The game in question is still untitled, but in some ways, it reminded us of Ghost of Tsushima and its Legends expansion – with due distinctions. On the official Dark Passenger website, it is described as a first-person multiplayer game featuring PvE cooperative and competitive PvP elements.
Set in Feudal Japan after the attack of “an unnamed invader” who usurped the throne of the Shogun, it also offers supernatural elements in the form of powerful artifacts. “Playing as shinobi and kunoichi, players will face the usurper’s acolytes and other assassins in search of the same items,” the site reads.
“While traveling through these dark places, players’ characters will be able to jump over the rooftops of the city, hide under the floors of country cottages, climb pagodas and sneak through shrines and temples. The verticality of the settings will offer an infinite number of possibilities for movement, while the changeable weather will surprise them with sudden downpours, strong winds and fog”.
Dark Passenger has undoubtedly put quite a lot of elements on the plate, so we can’t wait to see this elusive game in action. The wait will probably be long, in the meantime, we can enjoy the first conceptual images of the video game, which is currently in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store). You can find them below, enjoy!
