Your entire artwork type has been remodeled from a low-poly vibrant and colourful design, a la Job Simulator, to one thing a lot darker, gritty, and real looking. At first look, I assumed it was footage for brand spanking new content material in Blood & Fact or one thing alongside these traces. Kudos to the workforce at Sumalab, it seems very spectacular.

There isn’t a date however the tweet does say “quickly sufficient to entertain your isolation” implying it would launch in the course of the worldwide lockdown intervals in impact because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There’s a Steam web page with extra particulars as nicely. It’ll be in Early Entry initially “for as much as 6 months” earlier than a full launch.
