GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One Switch

When we saw Liberated at Gamescom last year we were left a bit mixed about the project. We really liked the art and atmosphere but were not quite convinced by the gameplay and the animation in general. For once, the game will come out first on Switch on June 2, but we have almost an hour of the game to show you today so you can

Liberated is one of those few indie games which will first come out on Nintendo Switch and later on PC. When we played a short demo at Gamescom, we were a bit disappointed in the gameplay but totally convinced by the title's art style and atmosphere. Until we are given a more specific release date than a mere 2020, here's a new gameplay video.

Liberated is really a game that catches the eye. With its well-crafted comic book art style and its dark atmosphere, it makes you want to see more. Even though Comic Zone comes to mind, Atomic Wolf's game does not follow the exact same patch as the game is divided between reading sequences (which sometimes include choices) and short shooting and stealth sequences. The idea is quite brilliant, and again, the title's art is excellent. The main problem is that gameplay isn't quite where we hoped it should be. Contrary to Conrad B. Hart (Flashback), the main character cannot crouch, which basically means you must shoot first or pull the trigger faster. Moreover, he only runs, which makes the stealth passages awkward. Because the game can be a bit challenging (the main character isn't very resistant, no pun intended), that can be a tad frustrating. Still, there is definitely something that makes the game appealing to us, so we want to see more of it, hoping it will achieve its true potential.

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (3 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo keeps being this Sonic title bait & switch "will their next title be able to Look up par with its current gen counterparts"? Never. Even Halo 4 who was pretty good on Campaign suffered from (3 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (4 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (4 Hours ago)

  • b0vril

    b0vril yea but, would it be halo then? (4 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (1 Day ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (1 Day ago)
