Disjunction

Sold Out have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Disjunction, a Cyberpunk stealth-action RPG developed by Ape Tribe Games. It will be released this Summer in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features for the game:

Set in the dystopian underworld of a near-futuristic New York City, Disjunction is a single-player, cyberpunk, stealth-action RPG that follows the intertwined narratives of three characters as they unravel a mystery that will change the fate of their city. A classic RPG featuring hardcore stealth-action mechanics and a reactive story where your choices have real consequences, Disjunction gives players the freedom to take the gameplay approach that suits their playstyle: blasting through levels in brutal fast-paced combat, or sneaking around encounters to avoid confrontation.

  • Challenging stealth-action gameplay that lets you play the way that suits your style, whether it’s sneaking through levels or attacking head-on.
  • 30+ handcrafted non-linear levels.
  • 3 playable characters, each with individual abilities, cybernetic upgrades and talents to customise your playstyle.
  • A reactive story where the player’s choices have real consequences.
  • Stylized pixel art environments and characters.
  • Atmospheric musical score by composer Dan Farley.
