Judas is a New Mind-Bending FPS from BioShock creator Ken Levine
Sydney, New South Wales
The Game Awards kicked off with a huge bang on Friday (AU time), first with Hades II, which was then followed by one of the most tatalising trailers we've ever witnessed from the awards in Judas, a new game from BioShock creator, Ken Levine, and his new studio, Ghost Story.
A disintegrating starship. A desperate escape plan.
You are the mysterious and troubled Judas. Your only hope for survival is to make or break alliances with your worst enemies. Will you work together to fix what you broke – or will you leave it to burn?
“We founded Ghost Story Games to build upon the legacy of System Shock 2, BioShock, and BioShock Infinite,” said Ken Levine, President & Creative Director. “With Judas, we’ve created an entirely new world and set of characters while exploring different approaches to single-player, narrative first-person shooters.”
Ghost Story Games was founded by Ken Levine (Creative Director of System Shock 2, BioShock, BioShock Infinite) and former Irrational Games developers. The studio’s mission is to create narrative-driven experiences rooted in immersive world building and gameplay. Their passion and pedigree have resulted in genre-defining experiences for more than 25 years.
Ghost Story Games is deep in development on Judas and will self-publish the game.
There's a lot of very obvious callbacks to the first BioShock in the short trailer, which we might add is very impressive, visually, particularly in the art and art style on display.
No one does dystopia quite like Levine, so we're keen to learn more. You can Wishlist the game now on Steam and Epic Games Store. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
