Ken Levine, creator of BioShock, is developing a new game called Judas. Revealed at the 2022 Game Awards, Judas differs from BioShock but retains some of its essence. It is a single-player, narrative-focused first-person shooter set in space on a deteriorating spaceship where inhabitants are succumbing to madness. Survival depends on forming and breaking alliances with different characters and factions.
As for the release date, no official confirmation is available, but developers suggest a probable launch by March 2025. Judas will be accessible on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, and the Epic Game Store.
The trailer prompts players to question if they will fix what they broke, hinting at the need to form alliances while also suggesting possible betrayals. Levine, known for groundbreaking moments, might introduce similar twists in Judas. The game aims to be highly replayable, offering multiple paths leading to diverse endings.
In terms of gameplay and setting, Judas shares a tonal likeness with BioShock in design and style. Characters resemble those from a Mad Hatter’s tea party, engaging in violent encounters in peculiar outfits. The game, however, ventures into sci-fi territory with a space setting, featuring powers reminiscent of Plasmids from BioShock. Expect RPG elements and moral choices.
