The strategy shooter will also be available day one on Xbox Game Pass.
Strategy shooter Void Bastards has a release date. It’s out on May 29th for Xbox One and PC. Inspired by the likes of System Shock 2 and Bioshock, the title sees players leading a group throughout derelict starships, battling enemies, and accessing anything useful.
You’ll have to make careful decisions, like whether to enable power, locate supplies, and when to run away from foes. Scavenging for food and fuel will also be necessary, especially given the void whales, pirates, and other nasties roaming the Sargasso Nebula. Elements of rogue-lite titles can also be seen, as players receive different prisoners to play as with random traits that will carry on when the previous character dies.
Overall, the campaign will take about 12 to 15 hours to complete according to the developers. Void Bastards will be available for Xbox Game Pass on the same day as PC, so if you’re a subscriber, you can try the game out to see if it’s worth your while. Check out the trailer below and admire the game’s admittedly colourful visuals.
