From Red Thread Games, a Norweigan indie studio, a new title called Dustborn was shown off. Previous works from Red Thread include Draugen a mystery title set in the 1920s Norway.
The trailer showed a band of friends road tripping together. With heavy shading, the title looks like you're watching a comic book in action. Explaining the game is about hope, road trips, and pretty much everything.
Gameplay was shown of Dustborn in action, a story-driven action-adventure title. You play as Pax and her friends as they travel across America to recruit people to establish a resistance. It's not just an announcement trailer that we get either, there's a brief developer-led gameplay demo showing Pax as she is traveling with her friends, talking to her sister, and even facing off against some mysterious soldiers. While the gameplay was shown it was stressed that this is very early alpha gameplay and that the game is still a long way from release.
If you'd like to see the gameplay developer presentation then you can on the GamesRadar YouTube page.
While not discussed it seems that the game will allow the player to choose dialogue options to change the flow of conversation. Briefly, we see white-clad soldiers approaching Pax before she uses some kind of power to create a large force to throw these soldiers away.
Dustborn coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X in 2021 and you can wishlist it on Steam now.
