Kursk set to release on PC in October; on consoles next year
02 Jul, 2018
Spy on a sub in the documentary adventure game Kursk, which finally has an October release date for PC. Console players will have to wait until next year.
Polish developer Jujubee has announced that its ‘documentary’ adventure game Kursk will release on 11th October, but only for PC. The game will release on PS4 and Xbox One in the first half of 2019. We previously had a June release date for the game, but that clearly did not come to pass. Will this release date stick? There’s only one way to find out.
One sign that Jujubee is confident about this date is that they’ve introduced pre-orders for the game on their website. You get a 20 percent discount on the game if you pre-order from there.
As we have reported in the past, Kursk is an adventure game in which you follow the Russian submarine Kursk. The submarine ended up sinking to the bottom of the Barents Sea in 2000. The game will follow this disaster in a self-proclaimed documentary fashion. Some new details on the game have cropped up thanks to the Steam page, however. Have a look:
You assume the role of a spy who finds way on the Russian nuclear submarine K-141 Kursk. Your task is to collect secret information about the revolutionary Shkval supercavitating torpedoes. While trying to complete your mission, you become witness to the dramatic events which shook the world at that time.
As an intelligence operative, you will have to balance meeting people and obtaining secret information, all while trying not to get caught. The game also allows players to make choices that will affect the events depicted.
Well, that’s one way to get underwater. Another is to play Beyond Blue, which is being created in collaboration with leading ocean experts. Also have a look at Night Call for some noir taxi-driving mysteries.
