Volume Launches On August 18 for the PS4, PS Vita & PC

Happening a little before E3, Mike Bithell announced in a new trailer today that Volume is releasing on August 18 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC.

Answering some questions on Twitter about the stealth puzzle game, Bithell confirmed there will be cross-buy and cross-saves on PS4 and PS Vita. Addressing the fact that there’s no longer any PlayStation timed-exclusivity, he said, “We didn’t think we’d be able to hit PC at the same time, we were wrong.”

Here’s Volume’s description:

Volume is a stealth game about being heard.

Locksley does not kill. That would be far too easy. Instead, he commits his crimes through stealth. He sneaks, he distracts, he avoids. He is never seen, and seldom heard. As he grows in popularity and notoriety, so will his inventory. Blackjacks, bugles, thunderclaps and veils are just some of the tools at Locksley’s disposal.

The game will be released with a hundred challenging and exciting environments, but that is only the beginning. Every area of the game can be remixed, added to and expanded upon. The community are free to take the game in any direction they want, even releasing their own takes on the core levels. This is a game which will evolve, warp and grow as players make their mark on Locksley’s legend.

Volume is a near future retelling of the Robin Hood legend, starring Danny Wallace and Charlie McDonnell. It will likely be a pretty good game.

Will you be getting Volume in August?
