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.

    alimokrane published original content available on Game Pass. Delaying Halo Infinite to achieve that is more important than launching the console itself. Microsoft is playing on a whole other level now. (12 Hours ago)
