After months of development, it was announced Monday morning that The Station will officially launch on Feb. 20.
The first-person, sci-fi mystery game allows players to investigate the bizarre disappearance of the Espial Space Station crew while dealing with a mysterious presence aboard the ship.
The Station boasts a stellar development team of AAA veterans, including former Radical Entertainment head Dave Fracchia, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning designer Les Nelkin, and BioShock Infinite and League of Legends composer Duncan Watt. The sleek game design and animation, in conjunction with the ambient soundtrack, allow for a mix of “progressive sci-fi” optimism and unnerving isolation.
In the press release, Fracchia said, “Our goals is to challenge what people expect from atmospheric mysteries. By abandoning player-driven dialogue we are able to replicate the emptiness and loneliness of space, while still enthralling with a pressure-packed mystery.”
The game will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows, Mac and Linux for $14.99. Watch the game’s announcement trailer below.
