I’ve just returned from a trip to see Pandemic’s just-around-the-corner open world alterna-World War II game for another publication (I do so like to dance with the devil in the pale moonlighting), and was faintly surprised to realise whilst there that it was due on PC. This is because I never read any of John Walker’s earlier posts about the game, due to a dark, ancient prophecy that states existence as we know it will meet a horrific end should I ever read anything written by him.
I’m embargoed up the wazoo for a little and must honour my commissioning editors by saving my current word-thunks on the game for them, but what I can do is show you some recent footage to hint at what you’re in for come the unorthodox release date of December 8th (for, as I double-checked, this is one PC version that isn’t being released after the console ones).
Here is an Oirish man, boobs and explosions:
And here’s some footage showing how the intruiging Will To Fight (WTF?) mechanic works, and how it changes the game’s very appearance:
Despite that pre-dating Walker’s Saboteur posts, a quick scan reveals that for some reason he didn’t include it so… so… Uh-oh.
OH CHRIST I’VE READ ONE OF HIS POSTS! Christ! Jesus Christ! JESUS Christ! CHRIST! Oh Jesus! Jesus CHRIST! JESUS! CHRIST! OH JESUS! OH CHRIST! JESUS CHRIST!
