Beyond A Steel Sky: The First Gameplay Of Beneath The Steel Sky’s Sequel [VIDEO]

Beneath the Steel Sky, a dystopic cyberpunk game, came out in 1994 – Revolution Software thinks it’s not too late to create a sequel for it, and we agree with them…

Beyond a Steel Sky is a thrilling story of loyalty and redemption set in an eerie and terrifying world of AI-driven social controls. As can be expected of a Revolution adventure, the tale is woven with the studio’s signature humour, supported by legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons’ acclaimed artistic style.

[…] Beyond a Steel Sky is a hugely ambitious adventure in which intelligent, humorous emergent gameplay drives an edgy narrative. Very much an adventure, the game is set in a dynamic, bounded-sandbox world. A unique world that will respond to—and be subverted by—the player’s actions. The game characters, driven by advanced AI tech, are willful and motivated: their intelligent responses allow interesting, emergent solutions to puzzles and obstacles. The culmination of Revolution’s 30 years of developing adventure games, Beyond a Steel Sky evolves and redefines the adventure genre,” the press release says.

Dave Gibbons’ art style becomes alive in the gameplay video below, and it still seems to slightly resemble his work on Watchmen as well. Beyond a Steel Sky is set to have „custom-written cutting-edge graphics technology delivers a beautiful, real-time, comic-book-style world in HDR, and 4K” as well. We can see two videos- a trailer, and a first look at the gameplay, courtesy of IGN.

We still doubt the release window – all we know that Beyond a Steel Sky is going to launch PC, undefined consoles (perhaps Revolution Software needs a publisher – THQ Nordic/Embracer Group AB should consider them…), and Apple Arcade, which is going to be a subscription service launching this fall, offering games playable offline (!), this year. We think it might be a 2020 release window, and then, next-gen platforms seem more plausible…
