First-person shooter RPG 'Beyond Sunset' looks awesome in the new trailer

By - | Views: 8,206

With a graphical style inspired by classic DOS games, Beyond Sunset is probably one of the absolute most promising looking retro shooters coming.

"SUNSET CITY, CALIFORNIA - 20XX: You've been awakened from cryostasis. Your name, your identity, your memories… All lost in the confusing fog of hypersleep. Not only a stranger in a strange place, you begin to manifest powerful abilities. Lightning-fast reactions. Innate combat skills. Near-supernatural agility. You’re not like everyone else.

Your talents are quickly recognized. A mysterious woman named Yuri makes you an offer you can’t refuse. In exchange for putting your talents to use as a street samurai, she will use her resources to discover your identity and restore your lost memories. She welcomes you to a community of other extraordinary individuals who share your unique abilities, and are united by a common cause."

In development with a release planned for 2023, which the developer previously confirmed for Linux too, it's recently gained a new Story Trailer.

Awesome. This and Selaco look like they are going to be great. And great on my new 43in 4K monitor(and will be the only games I can get a playable framerate on with a 5600XT).
