Liberation may seem like a standard side-scroller at first glance, but the devil's in the details, as Atomic Wolf's new project is an interactive dystopian comic book, merging the art of hand-drawn graphic novels with thrilling and intense action sequences.
The team at IGN has released nearly ten minutes of never-before-seen Liberated gameplay footage, shedding new light on the Warsaw-based development team's vision of a noir cyberpunk near-future, "where modern technology empowers government control and civil liberties are in decline."
According to Atomic Wolf, Liberated will put the spotlight on important issues, including "authoritarianism, social networks, facial recognition, fake news, [...] government control and civil liberties."
Liberated hasn't even launched yet, but it has already managed to win several prestigious awards such as Famitsu's TGS Indie Prize and Nordic Game's Discovery Contest. As a reminder, Liberated will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC at some point between April and June.
