Curve Digital and developers Fallen Tree Games have announced their new action open-world sandbox game American Fugitive. We’re promised destructible environments, dramatic storytelling and epic car-chase mayhem. The game is set to launch on PC via Steam, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
American Fugitive is set in a sleepy American country town in the 1980s. Players take the role of Will Riley. You’re no angel, but you’re not a killer. Yet the cold-blooded murder of your dad is the crime they’ve locked you up for. Fuelled by grief and a burning desire for vengeance, you must break out of jail to find the real culprit. It’s payback time.
Watch the American Fugitive announcement trailer below:
Key features include:
- A mature action game based on an original story – Unravel a plot of mystery, deception and corruption, full of twists and turns, inhabited by a motley cast of law-breakers and law- enforcers.
- A charming open-world environment – Explore Redrock County, a beautiful and vibrant slice of 80s rural north America, on foot or by car.
- Choose the life of a felon – Rob houses, steal cars, arm yourself to the teeth. Just don’t get caught!
Lewis Boadle, Art Director at Fallen Tree Games said:
“We’re absolutely thrilled to announce our latest game to the world! The project began life several years ago as an idea that just refused to go away: What would it be like to be on the run? Part open-world sandbox, part 80’s on-the-run thriller… ALL action! It’s a much larger vision than anything we’ve tackled before as a small indie team, but thankfully Curve Digital have proved to be the ideal publishing partner. We can’t wait to bust American Fugitive out of its cell and into the hands of gamers.”
