Stick to the shadows and use your quick wits in Winter Ember, a pure stealth experience not seen since the Thief series. 

Winter Ember is an isometric stealth game where you play as Arthur Artorias, a man who returns to his city of Anargal after years of exile. Arthur is home for revenge, which players will be able to accomplish within the title's large sandbox. Players will be able to use shadows as their weapon of choice, flitting out from it while using their tools and special abilities to kill off a religious militant group that is now ruling Anargal. Utilize the shadows, explore hidden passages, and craft magical arrows to navigate the world around you, all on your quest for vengeance. 

Winter Ember is available for the PC and PlayStation 5.

Key Features:
A True Stealth Experience

As Arthur, you must stick to the shadows, infiltrate homes and explore hidden passageways; but, be careful not to be spotted! Choose your playstyle: knocking out enemies may keep them quiet for some time, but they will eventually wake up; a quick slice to the throat may be a more permanent solution, but the bloodstain you leave on the carpet might be a dead giveaway! Keep your wits about you, dispose of bodies, peek through keyholes and pickpocket unsuspecting victims.

Deep Arrow Crafting System

Prepare for your mission by planning your loadout. With over 30 arrows to craft, experimentation is key to your success! Do you craft a smoke arrow to blind your opponent, or do you add on a poison element to create poisonious gas? Use your arrows offensively or defensively: break down weak walls with a blunt arrow to surprise your enemy, or use a rope arrow to reach a higher place and take out your enemies from a distance.

Skill Tree

Customize your playstyle from 3 distinct skill trees – stealth, combat, and utility. Unlock over 70 unique passive and active skills to choose from and seek vengeance your way.

Explore A Dark World

Return home to the cold Victorian town of Anargal, on the verge of technological breakthrough. Infiltrate and explore vast environments brimming with treasure and mystery. From rival gangs to unique characters, approach each scenario in a myriad of ways. Take advantage of the environment, find solutions to every problem, and move past any challenge standing in your way.
