Combining stealth, action, platforming and a ton of SteamPunk, The Swindle is available to download right now on Xbox One.
Size Five Games have brought their new spin on stealth and action to Xbox One and after an initial delay, it should be something to check out. Set in a Steampunk world, the procedurally generated levels will see you breaking into buildings, stealing cash, hacking systems and getting straight back out again.
You will however need to start off small in order to acquire the skills needed to pull off the ultimate heist.
“After three years of developing and talking about nothing but The Swindle I am ecstatic that players are finally getting their hands on the game” says Dan Marshall, Founder of Size Five Games. “With The Swindle I wanted to design a completely new spin on the stealth and action experience whilst keeping true to a classic rogue like style experience. That was the kind of game that I always wanted to play but could never find. The reception we have already received has been incredible. I can’t wait to see people’s different heist set ups.”
Managing director of Curve Digital, Jason Perkins, comments: “It’s been a huge privilege to have played a part in bringing The Swindle to consoles. Dan is a genius and it shows in the games mechanics, level of detail and overall polish. Stealth games have never been this nerve wracking. Honing your skills and equipment whilst strategically planning is the key to success. Without them, you will never survive the 100 days. I had to learn that the hard way”
The Swindle is a steampunk cybercrime caper about breaking into buildings, hacking their systems, stealing all their cash, and quickly running away again before the police show up. London, 1849. Scotland Yard will soon activate its breakthrough surveillance technology, “The Devil’s Basilisk”. Its surveillance capabilities will be total and your career as a master thief will be over. Steal it, before that can happen. From the safety of your rickety airship, you can modify your thief with new skills, tools, and all manner of technological horrors to tackle the richest and most secure buildings in London. All the buildings you’ll be robbing are randomly-generated, so you’ll never get the same level twice. Have you got what it takes to pull off The Swindle?
You can download The Swindle right now on Xbox One for £11.99 by visiting the Xbox Games Store.
