BioShock director announces strategy shooter VOID BASTARDS for PC, Xbox One

Inspired by BioShock and System Shock 2 and led by Irrational Games co-founder Jonathan Chey, Void Bastards is a revolutionary new strategy-shooter that will test your wits as well as exercise your aim. Can you lead the misfit prisoners of the Void Ark through the derelict spaceships and myriad dangers of the Sargasso Nebula? Will you make the right choices about what to do, where to go and when to fight? Master combat, manage ship controls, scavenge supplies, craft improvised tools and much more! Developed by Blue Manchu and Presented by Humble Bundle, Void Bastards will release in early 2019 on PC and Xbox One.

Forget everything you know about first-person shooters: Void Bastards asks you to take charge, not just point your gun and fire. Your task is to lead the rag-tag Void Bastards out of the Sargasso Nebula. You make the decisions: where to go, what to do and who to fight. And then you must carry out that strategy in the face of strange and terrible enemies.
