Video PC Switch

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.

    Melmoth were already in the game, he just activated them. I don't think it would make the "4K" pro machine look good running sub full-hd. (6 Hours ago)

    Melmoth @Seth: Reading about the 60fps hack for Bloodborne makes me think Sony didn't do a 60fps patch for the PS4 Pro as it would require about 720p resolution to run. The guy who hacked it said the profiles (6 Hours ago)
