Set in a dystopian future, the turn-based strategy involves stealth and over-the-shoulder shooting.
Developer The Bearded Ladies came out of left field last week with an announcement for its newest turn-based strategy title, Corruption 2029. Available now on the Epic Games Store, it’s set in a not-so distant future America where things are less than cheery. If you’ve played Mutant Year Zero, the studio’s breakout strategy title, this will all seem very familiar.
Corruption 2029 is billed as a “hardcore tactical game” that even experienced players will find challenging. With a squad of augmented soldiers, you’ll use stealth and shoot up foes. It all seems very XCOM-ish, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The visual fidelity is on point with its atmospherics and sci-fi aesthetic.
Given its sudden release, expect more gameplay footage and impressions on Corruption 2029 in the coming weeks. Whether it will come to other platforms later or is a timed exclusive to the Epic Games Store is currently unknown. As always, stay tuned for more details.
