Whitestone merges a host of ideas

We’d not heard of Whitestone from Hailstorm Games prior to release on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. But we’re super intrigued by the inspiration. How does a game that takes ideas from Persona, Dark Souls and Dead Space suit you? That’s what you’re getting with Whitestone on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. 

Available right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch, Whitestone is the product of Hailstorm Games. It’s coming to PC soon too, with a Steam release set for September 15th. 

Mixing ideas

Drop in and you’ll find something that – at least from the press blurb – is pretty unique. Taking design cues, features ideas and more from a multitude of games, it’s the pull of Dead Space and Persona that really gets us. How does that come together? Well, it’s time to find out. 

Priced at £16.74 from the Xbox Store, Whitestone sees you stumbling aboard the Sunchaser, piloted by Jack and crew. But it’s whilst on a voyage to the Arctic when things start to unravel; friends go missing, madness spreads. 

It’s up to you to investigate what is going on, looking for the routes to multiple endings. With RPG elements, some horror, a smattering of action and bits and bobs of both comedy and romance, you can be sure that the tale of Whitestone won’t be a straightforward one. 

Want some key features?

You can also be sure of some serious game time. You’ll be looking at double figure hours for Whitestone completion, various pathways and routes to take. There’s a NewGame+ too, loads of side quests and a variety of combat levels to enjoy. 

In all, those key features sit as…

– 10+ hour story over 30 in-game days.
– 6 different routes to with different characters, combat levels and story focus.
– NewGame+ with increased difficulty while keeping your items, stats and money.
– 20 crewmates with their own side-quests.
– Dozens of weapons and elemental powers to fight foes.
– 8 combat levels with medieval fantasy, sci-fi and steampunk themes.

Take in Whitestone on Xbox now

If you are looking for something that promises things a little different to the norm, then grab Whitestone now. You’ll find it on the Xbox Store for Xbox and on other platform storefronts. 

Whitestone on Xbox Game Description

Welcome aboard the ‘Sunchaser’ at the dawn of the 20th century with Jack and crew!

Backed by his good friend, Jack lands his first major career move as an apprentice in the Archaeology department aboard the colossal airship. On its capstone voyage to the Arctic, it’s smooth sailing until Jack’s quarters are broken into and his friend goes missing.

A madness spread across the ship. The crew looks at Jack with paranoia, and Jack looks back with the same. Unsure who to trust, Jack is forced to fight nightmares both mental and physical as he becomes the prime suspect for a terrible deed, eventually discovering the truth with the assistance of his crewmates.

Whitestone starts as an investigation and then goes far beyond. Whitestone blends RPG, horror, action, comedy and romance. Want a happy JRPG ending? Study, help out your crewmates and see the voyage completed! Want a survival horror ending? Make the… err not so right choices.

Survival is not guaranteed, not for Jack or his friends. Your choices matter. Go to the banquet with friends? Stay in the spooky infirmary alone at night? Or do neither! Torture? Or a dinner party? Multiple routes lead to not only different endings, but different storylines, protagonists and enemies.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
