as dusk falls launch

A brand-new, highly interactive drama, in As Dusk Falls, every single secret found within will have a price. It’s up to you to explore those secrets, driving the lives and relationships of the cast as you go. 

Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S (fully optimised) and PC (Steam or Windows) (either for a cash outlay or via Game Pass), As Dusk Falls comes out of the INTERIOR/NIGHT studio. Now, you may not have heard of these guys before, but when you consider that this is a team put together by ex-Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls lead Caroline Marchal, you can be sure that the quality that comes will be of the very highest quality. 

That’s the hope with As Dusk Falls as that INTERIOR/NIGHT team whisks us off to small town Arizona; 1998 in fact. It’s here where we’ll get the opportunity to take in the lives of a couple of families, as the timeline spreads some thirty years, kicking off with a robbery-gone-wrong. From there, the choices you make will dictate how As Dusk Falls plays out, and how the lives of those found within will take hold. It’s so interesting that As Dusk Falls easily found a place in our Up Next article for July, as we detailed the most exciting Xbox games for the month.

In As Dusk Falls, every family will have secrets, and every single one of those secrets will have a price. It’ll be your decision making that will decide how the tangle of these stories play out, with As Dusk Falls coming across as an uncompromising crime drama, full of interwoven destinies. 

It’s a game in which you can play alone, or experience with others; either locally, online or as a mixture of both. It’s here where those decisions will really hit home, with the As Dusk Falls Mobile Companion App for iOS and Android helping ensure everyone gets a taste. 

The key features of As Dusk Falls include:

  • Uncompromising Crime Drama – The cinematic story is brought to life by the performance of actors that are digitally rendered into a beautiful art style, creating a unique experience that plays like a motion graphic novel.
  • Sacrifice vs Survival – Can you break free from your family’s toxic influence? What will you sacrifice for the ones you love? Can you overcome your past? Your decisions will shape the characters’ fates.
  • Interwoven Destinies – Follow two families in their struggle to survive, protect, and endure through challenges rooted in the previous generations’ mistakes.
  • Experience Together – Reveal insights about yourself and those you play with as you discover the underlying values of your decisions in cooperative gameplay with up to 8 players at a time, locally or online (or a mix). The As Dusk Falls companion app makes making choices in game easy, just use your phone or tablet to vote with or against your friends. (Online console multiplayer requires Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold, subscriptions sold separately).

There’s huge hype for how As Dusk Falls plays and we’ll be sure to follow this piece with a full review very soon. 

For now though, you can pick up the game from today for £24.99 from the Xbox Store, playable on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S or PC. It’s on Steam too, whilst Day One Game Pass capabilities should mean you’ve absolutely no reason to not give this a go.
