Coming to us from Size Five Games and Curve Digital, The Swindle is releasing on July 28 in North America and Europe for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. The Xbox One version follows on July 31, with Wii U shortly after.
A platforming, action, and stealth game set in a Victorian Steampunk world, here’s what you need to know about The Swindle:
All the levels are procedurally generated and it is the player’s job, as a master thief, to break into buildings, steal cash, hack systems and get out. Players must start small by robbing from the slums and upgrade their skills and abilities until they can pull off the ultimate heist in Scotland Yard.
Developer Dan Marshall adds:
The Swindle is the kind of game that I always wanted to play; one minute you’re sneaking past robot security guards to grab a load of loot and the next you’re being chased by police choppers and drones, desperately trying to avoid capture and an awkward-and-embarrassing death. Procedurally generated adventures are all the rage these days – but there’s nothing with stakes quite as high as The Swindle.
There was no mention of The Swindle including cross-buy on PlayStation.
