Red Thread Games and their publisher Spotlight by Quantic Dream have announced that Dustborn will launch on 20th August 2024 across PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC. Check out the new gameplay trailer.

This single-player action adventure game throws you into the dystopian Divided States of America where you have to go on the run and get from one side of the continent in Pacifica to the other in Nova Scotia. You’ll travel in a motorhome with a crew, all trying to pass themselves off as a punk rock band.

Along the way, you’ll make stops at various towns and locales, potentially recruit new members, build relationships with them… and also take on assignments from your secretive employers and avoid the cops as much as possible. Chance are you’ll end up stuck in a fight now and then, whether that’s against local punks, or getting into brawling scrapes against the cops.

There’s a really interesting mash of ideas in this one, with Creative Director Ragnar Tørnquist saying “It is, first and foremost, a character-driven game about people and the power of words. Dustborn is all about understanding your crew, their relationships, and how your words shape the world around you. We cannot wait for players to embark on this bonkers road trip.”
