New Judas trailer sheds more light on the game at PlayStation’s State of Play

Judas was my most anticipated game from the 2022 Game Awards, and Ghost Story Games has been silent ever since. Until PlayStation’s State of Play that is, where they debuted the second trailer for Judas. In it, we are getting a lot more information on what this world entails, even if we don’t have an exact handle on the situation. There are a lot of heavy Bioshock vibes, which is to be expected from Ken Levine. Take a look, along with a few extra details below.

Ghost Story Games, the development studio led by creative director Ken Levine, today released an all-new trailer for Judas, the single-player, narrative first-person shooter that is currently in development for the PlayStation®5 computer entertainment system, as well as Xbox Series X|S console systems, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. Revealed during the Sony State of Play, the trailer marks the most recent update for the title since its reveal in late 2022, and features new, in-game footage captured on PlayStation®5.

The “Who is Judas” trailer offers a deeper look at the game’s setting aboard the Mayflower, a spacefaring city whose citizens are trained to tear each other apart for even the most minor infractions, and where machines control every aspect of business, art, and government. You, as Judas, are the driver of every event in a mysterious story with a new cast of characters to get to know – and to change – in a world where every decision you make affects how the story unfolds.

The leaders tried to turn you into something you’re not: a model citizen.

And you sparked a devastating revolution to tear it all down.

Will you fix what you broke, or leave it all to burn?

Ghost Story Games was founded by Ken Levine (Creative Director of System Shock 2, BioShock, BioShock Infinite) and former Irrational Games developers. The studio’s mission is to create narrative-driven experiences rooted in immersive world building and gameplay. Their passion and pedigree have resulted in genre-defining experiences for more than 25 years.

Ghost Story Games continues its development of Judas, and will self-publish the game worldwide. Fans can add Judas to their wishlist on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|SSteam and the Epic Games Store. For continued updates, follow the developers on their official website, X (formerly Twitter), Facebook and Instagram.

From Ken Levine on the PlayStation Blog:

Characters have always been the driving force in every game we’ve ever made*. Whether fighting beneath the ocean to assassinate Andrew Ryan or escaping a city in the sky with Elizabeth, these personalities have always been at the heart of our stories. But what if you could choose between who to befriend and who to stab in the back?

With Judas (coming to PS5), we wanted to craft an experience where these decisions and how the story unfolds is up to you. Because you, as Judas, are the driver of every event in a story with a new cast of characters to get to know — and change — in ways you haven’t experienced before in our games.

In Judas, we give you a whole new world to explore: the corridors of the Mayflower, a spacefaring city whose citizens are trained to spy on one another and tear each other apart for the slightest offense. Where machines control every aspect of business, art, and government. The ship’s leaders tried to turn you into something you’re not: a model citizen. And you sparked a devastating revolution to tear it all down.

Do you want to fix what you broke or leave it all to burn? That’s a decision only you can make.

*Well, except SWAT 4. But that was one of our favorites too.
