Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth, release date, trailer, what to expect and more
It is the first game developed internally by Annapurna Interactive, although little else is known except that it takes place between the two films.
Annapurna Interactive has announced Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth, its first game developed in-house. It is planned for PC and consoles-without further detail- on an undetermined date. We will show you his first teaser.
The video does not give clues about its gameplay or type of game, although it seems that it does capture the tone of the world of Blade Runner and therefore does not seem to be focused on action but rather on the detective aspect. What we do know is that it will be set between the original Ridley Scott film and Blade Runner 2049, following the event known as the “blackout” that had its short film, Blade Runner Black Out 2022.
One of the questions Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth will answer is what does a Blade Runner do when there are no replicants left to hunt? Annapurna promises more information in the coming months. “People lost a lot of things with the ‘blackout’. I was lucky, I only lost a job. But now they want me back,” says the voice heard in the trailer.
There are more games with the license, according to rumors
Blade Runner has not starred in many games, although there is one that is quite famous. The Westwood Studios graphic adventure released in 1997 that returned remastered a year ago with Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition -which started on the wrong foot. However, a rumour from a year ago assured that there is an ambitious project for 2025 in charge of 110 Industries with a new studio opened in Switzerland.
“Cyberpunk is a dystopia defined by the contrast of advanced technology and a low standard of living. Ironically, Blade Runner Enhanced Edition also suffers from light and dark: it remains highly recommended for fans of graphic adventure games, it is an outstanding game, with charisma, faithful to the cinematographic source and does not sully our memories of Deckard’s adventure.
It seems essential for fans of the Ridley Scott film despite the blunders in this version that ugly some graphics, brings problems with the translation and loses dubbing “, we commented in the analysis of Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition, which after the launch received various improvements -among them, the original dubbing.
