August 13, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

A film noir stealth game, Calvino Noir is coming to PlayStation 4 on August 25 in North America and August 26 in Europe. A PC and iOS release will follow on August 27.

Game Director Dan Walters went on the PS Blog to discuss the game’s voice cast, which includes Anthony Howell (Dragon Age: Inquisition) as Wilt and Wolf Kahler (Raiders of the Lost Ark) as Arno:

While you are moving around in Calvino Noir’s levels, the characters that you control will have conversations. This is where most of our narrative happens. Sneaking into a secure location to grab secret documents creates discussions. They talk about what the implications of what is happening, how it relates to the other things you’ve found, and builds the lore of our 1930s noir world.

There’s also a narrator in Calvino Noir, who helps explain the sounds, smells, and feel of moments in the game.

Here are the description and features for Calvino Noir:

Embark on this exploratory, sneaking adventure through the 1930s European criminal underworld. Architecture meets Noir as you become unwillingly entangled in a revolutionist plot.
