Take to the neon streets of a violent cyberpunk future and face off against gangs, cults, and shady corporations in Glitchpunk
Are you ready to be welcomed to the dystopian future? Do you have what it takes to handle the unbridled chaos of a world unhinged? Revealed to the masses back in January, developer Dark Lord, alongside publisher Daedalic Entertainment, are delighted to announce Glitchpunk, a cyberpunk-themed game with an old school GTA 2 feel will go into Steam Early Access on Aug. 11th, 2021.
A top-down action game where you shoot, brawl, drive, steal and sneak yourself through a neon-soaked world full of gangs and cults, forging cooperations along the way, Glitchpunk isn’t just about blowing things up – it also tells a compelling story of transhumanism, xenophobia, and religion. You can influence the world around you, make new friends, face off against more enemies than you can count – and perhaps, just perhaps, convert an enemy’s aversion to affection.
Glitchpunk’s Early Access will launch with two cities — Outpost Texas and New Baltia — with two more cities — Neo Tokyo and Moscow — to be added during the Early Access journey. Each city has its own gangs and characters while also continuing the protagonist’s gripping story. Keep an eye out for more information on Glitchpunk’s Early Access updates as a detailed road map will be on the way soon after the game’s launch.
