“Anacrusis” debuted earlier this year and is a 1970s-style “Left 4 Dead” developed by Valve and Riot’s veterans, especially Chet Faliszek and Kimberly Voll, under their new studio Stray Bombay. Six months later, we have set a release date, and it is very close: January 13, 2022.
News of the important day came through a new Anacrus developer blog, where Stray Bombay communications director Will Smith assured fans that the date is the most reliable. “We want to make sure we only need to announce it once,” Smith said. “We want to make sure that nothing can stop us at this time. The roads are clear, the track is open, the grass is green, and the fields are open. I don’t know what analogy we use here, but the game will end on January 13.”
Anacrusis will enter the “early access format,” said Chet Faliszek, co-founder of Stray Bombay: “We want to be able to actively collaborate with the community, not just react to bugs or similar things. We will make meaningful changes to community-based games. .”
Faliszek explained that this will be “very weird early access” because in addition to the usual bug fixes and new content, there will be weekly challenges, “meta process” and more conceptual elements for players to try.
“So if you like, man, I have to do these three things to get this really bad, or, hey, this is so cool, this is how I unlock all these different skins and things, and it doesn’t It doesn’t cost me a penny, I like this-it’s also good feedback,” he said. “We want to put a representative idea of all the content in the game we see now and start getting your feedback, and then maybe we will add more content based on your feedback.”
Anacrusis will support cross-play across all storefronts (Steam, Epic and Microsoft on PC) and console versions. It will also appear on Xbox Game Pass, and if you miss it, it is now wisely called PC Game Pass on PC.To learn more about the content of the store, check out our recent preview-I’m not sure what it means to “imagine if the AI director of Left 4 Dead aims to create an atmosphere”, but it sounds promising-or hit stand up theanacrusis.com.
