Former Cyberpunk, Witcher Devs Announce Sci-Fi Thriller The Invincible For PS5 And Xbox Series X
Introducing a new sci-fi thriller called The Invincible.
The Invincible is a first-person sci-fi adventure game from Kraków-based Starward Industries, a Polish studio founded by developers who worked on Cyberpunk 2077, Dying Light, The Witcher 3, and more. It's coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2021.
In The Invincible, you play as a space scientist on a hostile planet searching for the crew of your ship after they go missing. The game is inspired by the 1964 sci-fi novel of the same name by Polish author Stanisław Lem. Its art style resembles pulp from that era as well.
"You are a scientist onboard an interstellar scientific expedition, suddenly thrown into a life-or-death rescue mission. Landing on a planet Regis III you have to find the missing crew members using some advanced space equipment, whilst relying on your brains and instincts to survive on the planet which quickly occurs to be unwelcoming," reads a line from the game's official description. "Soon you'll discover that Regis III holds terrifying secrets which are uncovered while you’re piecing together the fate of your crew. And as you delve deeper into the mystery, you realise that perhaps you are not alone, and that some places like this planet are better left untouched. But it's too late to turn back."
The Invincible promises "immersive gameplay" and a non-linear story that you can affect with personal choices and relationships. This element sounds similar to some of the games the developers have worked on before, including the still-upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. The game is built using the Unreal Engine. No gameplay footage has been released yet, but you can see some screenshots above and listen to some of the game's music in the video here. It should help to set the vibe until we learn more.
Cyberpunk 2077, meanwhile, releases on November 19. The game is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on that date, but you'll be able to play it on next-gen systems too thanks to backwards compatibility.
