Blazing Griffin has revealed a new PC exclusive multiplayer title that is set in the Victorian Era with a twist. That twist is the use of time travel, and the fact that the upper class lives amongst the clouds in their fabulous ships.
Up to eight players will vie for the eye of Mr. X, who hosts murdeous parties in which players must take each other out while hiding in plain sight. You can check out the official announcement trailer above to get a look at the game in action. Below you will find more details on the game from its press release.
About Murderous Pursuits
As the name so deftly implies, murder is the name of the game here, but it’s just as much about the tense moments of planning, strategy and panic-ridden, on-the-fly adjustments, as it is the execution itself. Developed by the team behind The Ship: Remasted, experience the giddy joy of subterfuge like never before. Surrounded by scores of innocent AI party-goers and patrolling guards, up to 8 passengers (humans or bots) must compete for the favour of Mr. X as they plot their gloriously violent acts, all while hiding in plain sight. That means identifying their assigned quarry in a crowd and plotting their demise, all while keeping a low profile and an eye out for suspicious individuals who could be their very own hunter.
Luckily, players have a wide range of tools at their disposal for such occasions. Chief among them are vignettes – special locations that allow nearby characters to participate in a variety of highbrow activities, like appreciating art and discussing foreign economics, which will surely dissolve suspicion. Since no two murders are the same, players can also bring a range of equippable boons to the table, ranging from temporary disguises and flash grenades, to the ability to counter another player’s dastardly deed.
All this to say, players would do well to make sure their assassinations are discreet and anything but run-of-the-mill. Mr. X expects only the most exquisite of murderous acts. Whether it’s by seeking out high value death-dealing implements across the game’s lavish maps, or dancing over your quarry’s lifeless body, there’s nothing quite like the thrill of a well-executed execution.
Murderous Pursuits sets its cunning plans into motion on PC in March 2018, bringing this third-person, PvP murder mystery to life. Get ready to fall into this atmospheric, steampunk take on the Victorian era, as you experience the darker side of high society.
