Cyberpunk-Shooter Foreclosed Announced for PS5 & XSX

Merge Games and Antab Studio announced today the comic book inspired third-person action-shooter Foreclosed is heading to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2021.

Foreclosed is a striking display of narrative-driven action where the player takes control of brain implant abilities, hi-tech weaponry, and a diverse skill tree system,” developers said. “Visually, it takes inspiration from the Deus Ex and Max Payne games along with Frank Miller’s graphic novel Hard Boiled, bringing a vibrant sci-fi setting to life with interactive cutscenes and transitions inspired by graphic novels.”

Foreclosed was first announced during IGN’s Summer of Gaming and today developers also released a deep-dive trailer into the game in addition to the launch date.

“Follow the story of Evan Kapnos, his identity recently Foreclosed, stripped of his job, brain implants and access to the city Blockchain,” developers said. “He must now escape the city before his identity and implants are auctioned off…”

Developers say Foreclosed “blends a striking comic book aesthetic alongside high-octane, cyberpunk infused action gameplay.” The game features hi-tech combat giving players the chance to modify your primary weapon, the symbiotic pistol, with an assortment of customizations including a machine-gun mode and explosive rounds. Players will discover and unlock firmware upgrades, brain implant like abilities with an RPG-like skill system to spec into.

“Keep an eye out on Merge Facebook and Merge Discord pages to keep up on all of the latest about the world of Foreclosed,” devs said.

Foreclosed is heading to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PC in sometime in 2021.
