Nonlinearity in everything. Journalists about JUDAS, the new game by the author of BioShock [VIDEO]

Must Read

After the release of BioShock Infinite, Ken Levine decided to take a break and think carefully about his next project. Many years later, the designer and his studio Ghost Story Games finally revealed the game JUDAS to the public, but little is still known about the shooter announced at the end of 2022. Levin and the team invited journalists (and Geoff Keeley) to visit them to shed light on the action.

So, the futuristic FPS, which the press without much thought called “BioShock in space” (although it should simply be “System Shock in a new way”) will tell about the Mayflower, a spaceship that transported people from Earth to Proxima Centauri. During the trip, something went wrong. The ship breaks down and several warring factions form on board. To survive, the main character – a girl named Judas – will have to work with their leaders, Tom, Nefertiti and Hope.

The main feature of JUDAS gameplay is the absolute non-linearity of the plot. The player is given the opportunity to complete tasks from the leaders of three factions. At first, they do not value the central character and call her a “traitor.” But if you play your cards right, they (or some of them) can change the attitude towards the protagonist.

Ken Levine calls this approach “story LEGO” – each user will have a slightly different story, which will depend on who and in what sequence he will help (and whether he will help at all). The trio of leaders constantly appears before our eyes in the form of holograms, argue, and sometimes even attack Judas. The behavior of the trio works in the spirit of the Nemesis system from Shadow of Mordor. Levin promises that everyone will have a unique passage.

From an action point of view, experts agree that JUDAS feels like BioShock, even though it is a title in a different setting. The mechanics are similar, the shooting is similar, there are special skills that allow you to throw fire and ice – in a word, classic. At the same time, the new product will be larger than BioShock Infinite and the adventure will last about 15 hours.

Let us remind you that the shooter does not have a release date yet. It will be released on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
