Can you remember back more than three decades? If you can’t then you need not worry as The Occupation will be taking you back to 1987 – all in order for you to become a reporter and decide the narrative…
Available right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, The Occupation drops you into the shoes of a journalist who needs to navigate their way through the mess of an explosion. Tasked with investigating a blast that threatens to erode the very civil liberties of those living within North West England, you’ll find yourself questioning anyone you can find, all in order to discover the truth behind the controversial act that has threatened the world.
How you go about that is completely up to – after all, you are the reporter and the choices you make will have a big impact on the lives of those caught up in the madness. Do you go direct with your questioning, with no beating around the bush, or do you prefer to take your time, creating a picture of events in your head before settling in for the long haul? With events that take place in real time, you may just not have that chance.
If you think a bit of investigative first person action is something that will see you right in the days ahead then you can grab The Occupation right now on both Xbox One, PC and PS4. The usual digital stores will give up a download provided you stump up the cash – the Xbox Store has The Occupation sitting pretty with a £19.99 price tag – or alternatively you may just find yourself able to nab a physical copy too.
