Bigben and Frogwares have released a new gameplay video showing a new mission from The Sinking City which can be started a few hours into the game. During “A Delicate Matter“, players utilize the game’s investigation mechanics to recover some stolen artwork.
As Frogwares describe the mission:
During this mission, Mr. Throgmorthon, head of one of the leading families in Oakmont, asks Charles to look into a delicate matter: a receiver of stolen art has disappeared just before closing the sale of a valuable item, and Throgmorthon wants it back at all costs. As the investigation unfolds, the player finds out that the story is far more complicated than it first seemed. Without being prompted by the game, the player must question more and more witnesses throughout the town, and use logic to get to the bottom of things.
If commented gameplay isn’t enough Lovecraftian horror for you, as of today, you can pre-order The Sinking City here. You can either pick up the standard edition of the game, or take a chance on the Necronomicon Edition which comes in both digital and physical formats and combines the base game, the “Worshippers of the Necronomicon” 3-quest pack, and the “Investigator Pack” DLC.
The Sinking City will release on June 27, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
