Polish indie game developer Jujubee has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming Russian submarine title KURSK. The trailer itself doesn’t just show off a bunch of clips, it gives you a look at the actual gameplay as you will be playing a documentary-style game around a real-life nuclear sub named K-141 that sank in August 2000.
There was a bit of controversy about the game as the Russians were apparently angry that a military tragedy was being used to create and sell a video game. But since the game has pressed on and will be getting a release on Steam, it appears the developers have decided to ignore those complaints. Enjoy the trailer and the game’s official description.
KURSK is going to be the first fully fledged adventure-documentary game in history. The player will take on the role of a spy who is trying to gain information about Shkval supercavitating torpedoes, which at that time were of interest to all major intelligence services in the world. The game, which will show events from a first-person perspective, will allow players not only to fully explore the ship and uncover its secrets, but also to visit Moscow and the garrison town of Vidyayevo.
