Broken Roads Introduces Its Hired Gun Origin
Versus Evil and Drop Bear Bytes released a new trailer for isometric narrative-driven RPG Broken Roads. The minute-long video introduces the game’s Hired Gun origin, one of four origin stories that players can select, each granting its own set of starting attributes and skills, as well as determining player’s initial reputation in the world.
Broken Roads is set in Western Australia and follows a group of companions as they travel across the region making allies, battling enemies, and investigating strange goings-on. The game features real-time exploration with turn-based combat and a hand-drawn art style, as well as character development built around four philosophies: Humanist, Utilitarian, Machiavellian, and Nihilist. Broken Roads is set to release for PC (via Steam), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on November 14, 2023. PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions are also planned but have not been dated.
