Developer Lince Works announced today that Aragami, their stealth game where you play as an undead assassin with the power to control the shadows, will be available on October 4 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4 and PC.
In addition to a digital release, the PS4 version will be available at retail, with a Signature Edition also up on Signature Edition Games for $52. The regular retail edition (price TBA) includes the game, digital art book, and digital soundtrack. The Signature Edition includes the game, the official soundtrack CD, an art book, and a signed box.
Lince Works Studio Head David talked about how you’ll use your shadow powers:
Using your shadow powers, you will be able to teleport between shadows, create shadow paths to avoid detection by enemies, create shadow decoys and weapons, and even summon shadow creatures that will strangle or decapitate your enemies.
We’ve catered the game to two distinct playstyles — Ghosts and Demons. Ghosts are the type of players that prefer to be silent assassins that leave no traces behind. Demons, on the other hand, are brutal killing machines that love to vanquish every enemy in the area. Whichever playstyle you choose, you will not be punished for your choice, and if you want, you can mix and match your styles for whatever the occasion calls.
He added that Aragami has been in development for over two years, it includes a Platinum Trophy, there’s online co-op where you can play with a friend, and you’ll find 8-10 hours of gameplay.
