BioShock creator Ken Levine has premiered a new trailer for his next first-person shooter, Judas.
Judas is a single-player, narrative first-person shooter developed by Ghost Story Games, Levine’s new studio formed after the closure of BioShock studio Irrational Games in 2014.
“Explore the corridors of the Mayflower, a spacefaring city whose citizens are trained to spy on one another and tear each other apart for the slightest offense,” a synopsis reads.
“Where machines control every aspect of business, art, and government. The ship’s leaders tried to turn you into something you’re not: a model citizen. And you sparked a devastating revolution to tear it all down.
“Do you want to fix what you broke or leave it all to burn? That’s a decision only you can make.”
It was reported back in October 2020 that Levine’s next game was entering the “later stages” of production.
A job listing for Ghost Story Games’ then-announced “immersive sci-fi game with RPG elements” claimed that the title was being created by a team of less than 35 people, which was said to be operating under a flat structure so that “every opinion counts.”
Levine closed Irrational Games – the studio behind BioShock and its sequel Infinite – in 2014 to form a smaller studio which eventually became Ghost Story Games.
At the time, he said the Take-Two owned company – initially made up of 15 staff – would be dedicated to “narrative-driven” digital games that were “highly replayable”.
