The Bioshock inspired Void Bastards is coming to Xbox One and PC in early 2019

Inspired by Bioshock and System Shock 2 and led by Irrational Games co-founder Jonathan Chey, Void Bastards is a revolutionary new strategy-shooter that will test your wits as well as exercise your aim.

This cell shaded FPS looks beautiful with vivid colours, sharp lines and what looks like rock hard gameplay. Void Bastards is set for release on Xbox One and PC in early 2019 via Humble Bundle.



Can you lead the misfit prisoners of the Void Ark through the derelict spaceships and myriad dangers of the Sargasso Nebula? Will you make the right choices about what to do, where to go and when to fight? Master combat, manage ship controls, scavenge supplies, craft improvised tools and much more!

Forget everything you know about first-person shooters: Void Bastards ask you to take charge, not just point your gun and fire. Your task is to lead the rag-tag Void Bastards out of the Sargasso Nebula. You make the decisions: where to go, what to do and who to fight. And then you must carry out that strategy in the face of strange and terrible enemies.

On board derelict spaceships you’ll plan your mission, taking note of the ship layout, what hazards and enemies you might encounter and what terminals and other ship systems you can use to your advantage.

Move carefully through the dangerous ships, searching for supplies and manipulating control systems. React to what you find - will you detour to the generator to bring the power back online or will you fight your way into the security module to disable the ship’s defenses? Choose carefully when to fight, when to run and when just to be a bastard.

Use your hard won supplies to improvise tools and weapons, from the distracting robo-kitty to the horribly unstable clusterflak.

Navigate your tiny escape pod through the vast nebula. Flee from void whales and pirates, and politely avoid the hungry hermits. All the while you must keep scavenging for the food, fuel, and other resources that keep you alive.

Void Bastards features a 12-15 hour campaign that you can complete with an endless supply of prisoners, each with their own unique traits. When one dies, another steps forward to carry on the fight. Don’t worry though, as any crafting progress you’ve made is retained from one to another.

Void Bastards will be available for PC and Xbox One Early 2019, developed by Blue Manchu and published by Humble Bundle.
