Kursk: The Game – Xbox News
Kursk: The Game has had its release date set to tie in with the movie of the same name starring Colin Firth.
Both the movie and the initial PC version will be released on November 7th and the game is looking really interesting, telling the story of what happened on 12th August 2000 when the Kursk nuclear submarine sunk to the bottom of the Barent sea with all 118 crew later found dead.
The exact nature of the disaster is still unknown to this day, as an adventure and survival game this will show the tragedy unfolding from a new angle combining first person action and a carefully crafted story.
The game is being developed and published by JuJuBee in Poland, the team have previously released Suspect in Sight, Take Off: The Flight simulator, Flashout 3D and Realpolitiks a real time strategy game.
The company issued a press release on 1st October explaining that they will be showcasing the game further at the Games Industry Conference in Poland later this month.
“KURSK will be available to the public at this year’s Game Industry Conference which takes place alongside the Poznan Game Arena (Poland). Jujubee will be present with its own booth where you will find a playable version of the game. Additionally the company is one of the main sponsors of two symphonic EPIC GAME MUSIC live concerts that will be held on October 12, 2018. It will be a unique event not only for music lovers, but also for KURSK fans. Its participants will have the opportunity to listen to the live performance of the main KURSK OST piece, written by the acclaimed composer Mikołaj Stroiński.”
You can see the game in action in the trailer below but this could be a really interesting adventure to explore when it comes to Xbox One in early 2019.
