The 2089 replace to Pistol Whip arrives December 1 with a pulse-pounding 5-act marketing campaign added to the hit arcade shooter.
The replace rounds out what we already reviewed as a 5/5 recreation at launch a yr in the past. Developer Cloudhead Video games recurrently updates the title with new scenes and gameplay components, with the earlier replace including new modifiers that change the texture of the sport in important methods.
With 2089 — which involves PC VR and Quest first with PSVR assist in 2021 — Cloudhead is difficult gamers who already discovered their rhythm with the core arcade components to see if they will maintain their adrenaline going throughout a number of songs and scenes. At the very least, that’s how I noticed it after beating the marketing campaign on arduous in lower than an hour. Cloudhead recommends some expertise with the arcade portion of the sport earlier than making an attempt the marketing campaign and I definitely had that lined, so your mileage might fluctuate after all.
2089’s story is delivered by a mixture of voice appearing and comedian book-like immersive illustrations made by artist Fico Ossio. The illustrations string collectively the moments between scenes — they’re simply lengthy sufficient to offer you time to catch your breath — and the voice appearing is fairly robust as properly. A few the scenes destroyed me repeatedly, however solely in that very specific method Pistol Whip builders appear to be honing in on with every replace. In different phrases, shedding simply made me angrier and transfer a bit faster till I beat it.
You may see the beginning of the 2089 story within the video beneath, in case you don’t thoughts the spoilers:
One act focuses on a rapid-fire gun that sprays the world in bullets whereas one other affords you no bullets in any respect. Are you able to Pistol Whip your method by means of that one?
The cinematic marketing campaign is described as the sport’s “first-ever”, so there’s hope that 2089 will finally be joined by different narratives.
Cloudhead says its subsequent main replace, Concierge, shall be out in Spring 2021. We don’t know what that replace will entail simply but. 2089 is Cloudhead’s final replace for Pistol Whip this yr.
