Uppercut Games, comprised of former BioShock developers, has announced a new game based on Arabian Nights. City of Brass is a first-person rogue-lite set to release this fall.
Players assume the role of a cunning thief armed with a scimitar who must adventure into the titular city filled with deadly traps and treasures. Though you’ll encounter danger around every corner, friendly Genies can be found for the player to barter loot and gain better gear and upgrades. Because City of Brass features permadeath, no two playthroughs will ever be the same.
Its streets are constantly shifting, making it even more difficult for players to find the heart of the city. Lethal pits, barrages of spinning blades and spears, and poison gas traps are just some of the obstacles that players will face on their journey. Creativity is encouraged to defeat your enemies. Not only are players equipped with a sword, but they can take advantage of explosive vases and objects around them to disorient enemies and lure them into traps.
City of Brass is coming to Windows PC and Steam this fall, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions arriving some time in 2018. More information can be found on the game’s website here.
