The release date was announced today during the Future Games Show – Spring Edition, along with a brand-new trailer showcasing never-before-seen game footage.
This single-player story-driven action-adventure game invites players to embark on a mysterious road trip to transport an important package from Pacifica to Nova Scotia. Traveling undercover as a punk-rock band, Pax and her crew explore the stunning Neo-Western landscapes of an alternate America and visit pit stops along the road to recruit crew members, build relationships, fulfill unexpected assignments, and fight their pursuers.

“Dustborn builds on our experience creating single-player, narrative-driven projects such as Draugen or The Dreamfall Chapters, and gave us a chance to explore the action/adventure genre,” states Creative Director Ragnar Tørnquist. “It is, first and foremost, a character-driven game about people and the power of words. Dustborn is all about understanding your crew, their relationships, and how your words shape the world around you. We cannot wait for players to embark on this bonkers road trip.”

DustbornTM explores the power of words through the eyes of its playable character, Pax, an Anomal with the ability to weaponize language. By crafting new words, Pax is able to talk her way out of hairy situations, using her vocal power to neutralize threats and influence those around her, including her crew. Assembling, managing, and building relationships with this group of misfits – each with compelling stories and clashing personalities – will prove to be a complex task requiring Pax to carefully leverage her abilities.

Players eager to learn more about DustbornTM can now watch the Gameplay Overview, broadcasted during the Future Games Show post-show. This colorful and perilous journey into a dystopian America will lead players to unexpected situations, as varied as the landscapes they will discover. The road trip is jam-packed with challenges, such as investigations and puzzles that require the crew’s peculiar powers, action-focused combats with weaponized words, or live musical performances from The Dustborns, the crew’s rock band. Players will throw Molotov cocktails from a motorbike, swing a baseball bat to take down helicopters and more. You know, just your everyday road trip.

DustbornTM will release digitally August 20, 2024, on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S/X and Xbox One at the recommended price of 29,99€/$29.99.
