Mike Bithell has announced when Volume, his next game after the incredibly popular Thomas Was Alone, is launching – and August 18 is the date.
Volume is a stealth game that’s all about being heard, but as such the protagonist (Locksley) does not kill his enemies, instead he commits his crimes through the use of stealth. The game leans on three major elements – sneaking, distracting and getting out of there, and that’s how you complete the challenges offered up in Volume. The game will be released with a hundred challenging environments to navigate, but all of those can be remixed, added to and expanded upon, giving the community a free grasp on what they want to do with the game after it’s out in the open.
Volume launches on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC on August 18th.
