unsighted xbox release

Always felt constrained by the power of the game developer? Just want to head on out on an adventure that can be explored YOUR way? You’ll be needing a bit of UNSIGHTED in your life. 

Available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC through the Humble Store (this is a Humble Games product, after all), Steam and Windows 10, UNSIGHTED sees you dropped into a huge world; a vast expansive of nothingness. Except for the fact that this world is actually an interconnected one, full of secrets, covered with shortcuts and powered by puzzles. By getting involved in all these things you’ll find yourself navigating the world of UNSIGHTED in the hope of recovering the memories of Alma, all before the clock strikes. 

Priced at £16.74, in UNSIGHTED it’s up to you to help ALMA survive. But with every second that goes by, the life force that keeps her and her friends alive is slowly diminishing. This means that at times you’ll need decide on who to save and who to let go; left to a life of the UNSIGHTED. 

You see, Alma is an Automaton and after awakening to a world that is left in ruin, will be left to head off on this adventure against time, exploring every nook and cranny, taking part in some varied combat opportunities, crafting and upgrading as you go. But it’s the choices which will really hit home here, if only because at times you’ll need to let go of those who are closest to you. And that is never an issue call. 

When we throw in some cooperative play to UNSIGHTED, plus challenge modes in the form of Boss Rush and Dungeon Raid, and what has been put together here by the Humble Games and Studio Pixel Punk teams is mighty impressive. We’ve been hands-on for a while too, with our full review due to drop very soon. Keep an eye out for it if you’re sitting on the fence. 

Edit: The review of UNSIGHTED on Xbox is now here.

And if you are on that fence, wanting to know more, the key features in summary are well worth taking in…

  • EXPLORE YOUR WAY – The world of Arcadia is massive and ripe for exploration, with many shortcuts to discover and maps both above and below the surface of the world. When one path seems too tricky, find new uses for familiar weapons and tools.
  • RICH AND VARIED COMBAT – Build your perfect loadout to suit your playstyle. UNSIGHTED allows players to equip weapons in various ways, from dual-wielding swords to shuriken and shotgun combinations. Alma will need to use perfectly timed combat actions to trigger faster reload speeds or a massively damaging parry to survive in the city.
  • CRAFT AND UPGRADE – Upgrade Alma through an extensive upgrade tree via chips you’ll find throughout your journey. Chips can be crafted or discovered, and each offers different bonus effects. Experiment with nearly limitless builds from the fast and efficient to the powerful and stylish. 
  • CHOICES MATTER – Alma’s withering life force ticks away in real-time and is the driving factor in the story of UNSIGHTED. Tarry too long in one spot, and you may find that critical NPCs have already become Unsighted before you meet them.  Save or drain other Automatons of their anima for your survival. The constant passage of time can result in vastly different endings and allows for further playthroughs to stay fresh and exciting.
  • HIGHLY REPLAYABLE + CO-OP – In addition to the main story UNSIGHTED also features additional challenge modes, BOSS RUSH and DUNGEON RAID. You can also bring a friend along your journey through Arcadia through full-featured CO-OP. 

So, let us know if you are sold on UNSIGHTED by dropping into the comments. If you want to pick the game up for yourself, the usual digital stores will sort out Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC gamers. The Xbox Store link you need is right here

Game Description:
