Question, a team made up of industry greats including the Creative Director and Lead Writer of Bioshock 2, the Senior Gameplay Programmer of Dishonored, and the Lead Effects Artist for Bioshock Infinite, have unveiled their new IP. The Blackout Club is a paranormal horror mystery that is set to launch in 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
The game follows a group of teens in a small town who start to notice that they’ve been waking up in strange places after blacking out after one of their friends had vanished. When no one would believe them, the friends’ band together to investigate the strange incidences. Their investigation leads them to a maze of tunnels beneath their seemingly normal suburbs filled hypnotic music and a surreptitious group of adults.
“In The Blackout Club, the horror genre comes home,” said Jordan Thomas, Co-Founder, Question LLC. “Our story is about vulnerable heroes — for whom co-op gameplay is a matter of survival — who unite to save their friends. We love expressive systems, where you shape the game experience as you see fit, often versus a whole ecosystem of intelligent threats. And now, they’re right next door – in a familiar, modern town, where the monster wears a human face. We can’t wait for you to meet it.”
The Blackout Club will feature customizable characters each with their own variety of powers and loadouts. Every member of the group plays a vital role each with their own unique skills and devices such as drones or traps. After the mission, you’ll have a chance to return to your hideout to level up and acquire new abilities.
The Blackout Club is set to launch in Q1 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
