Question, an independent game studio comprised of ex-Bioshock and Dishonored developers, have announced their plans to launch The Blackout Club in early 2019. Described as a cooperative paranormal horror mystery game, The Blackout Club is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime next year.
A team of industry veterans are leading the charge at Question, including the Creative Director and Lead Writer of BioShock 2, the Senior Gameplay Programmer of Dishonored, and the Lead Effects Artist for BioShock Infinite. The developers released a brief gameplay teaser to coincide with the announcement of The Blackout Club, which you can watch in the video below.
The Blackout Club follows several teens who have been experiencing strange blackouts. When one of the teens goes missing, it’s up to the remaining friends to investigate their disappearance and discover the cause of the blackouts in their small town. The game definitely gives off a Stranger Things vibe and should be on your radar if you enjoy solving eerie, conspiracy-based mysteries.
The Blackout Club supports co-op for up to four players, so you won’t have to worry about roaming the dark streets alone. Work together with other players to sneak out on nightly surveillance missions and gather evidence to unearth a mysterious conspiracy plaguing the town. Each member of the group plays a specific role and wields their own unique traps and devices.
The Blackout Club is scheduled to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the first quarter of 2019. Head over to the official website to stay up to date on The Blackout Club’s progress.
