by Rainier on July 29, 2021 @ 5:46 p.m. PDT

Foreclosed is a cyberpunk shooter where you dive into a comic book drenched aesthetic as you fight against the dehumanized bureaucracy that stole your identity!

Foreclosed is a narrative-driven action-adventure set in a Cyberpunk world filled with action, suspense, and experimental augmentations. Follow the story of Evan Kapnos in this sleek comic book styled game as he unraves the conspiracy behind his identity foreclosure. Who is responsible and why?

Evan Kapnos’ identity has been Foreclosed, stripped of his job, his brain implants and his access to the city Block-chain, he must now escape the city before his identity and implants are auctioned off.

Foreclosed combines the playability of video games with the sleek visual aesthetic of comic books. Everything from game-play to cinematics are experienced within the stylistic framework of a graphic novel. Full screen and comic panel perspectives are seamlessly blended as you move throughout Foreclosed's Cyberpunk city, uncovering a gripping conspiracy story. Cutscenes are also interactive and transition smoothly between alternative game-play styles.

Discover and unlock new abilities with an RPG-like skill system. Upgrade your weapon's potential with futuristic modifications like the Explosive or Machine-Gun Rounds mods, enhance your brain with experimental augmentations and fight back against your enemies. Learn to control your new abilities, fight opponents, and manipulate your surroundings. Acquire superhero-like abilities such as telekinesis to launch your enemies into the air or hurl huge objects at groups. Hack into different systems to create traps or even overheat the implants in your enemies’ heads.

Foreclosed will have something special in store for players on the PS5 console.

Antab Studio is planning on taking full advantage of the DualSense controller's haptic feedback to make the game more immersive than ever.

Haptics & Adaptive Triggers - Truly in theme with the futuristic cyberpunk setting of the game, players will be able to sense the unique properties of the Symbiotic Pistol's various mods as the haptics and adaptive triggers will deliver different feedback and resistances depending on the modifications equipped. Wielding the game's Symbiotic Pistol, players will feel subtle differences in feedback from one weapon skill to the next through the controller. From the simulated kickback of an explosive round to the air displacement of rounds leaving the pistol to haptic feedbacks all throughout the environment, players will be pulled into the experience like never before. 

DualSense Speaker - In-game, Evan will receive calls from one ally in his battle to liberate his identity from foreclosure. These private communications will be delivered through the DualSense controller’s speaker to give these dialogues a true ‘in world’ feel. 

DualSense Controller Lights - A key system at play in FORECLOSED are Evan’s experimental implants. Enabling him to unleash a range of special abilities, and linking directly to his weapon enabling several different weapon power-ups, the implants run the risk of overheating if relied upon for too long. If players allow this to happen, Evan is completely vulnerable for a brief period whilst the implants cool down. To help visualize this, the light on the DualSense controller will indicate the heat level of Evan’s implants, giving players a constant visual to keep them in the moment during a fight. Will you play it safe, or push your limits?
