Giant Games announced that their upcoming third-person action RPG, Pascal’s Wager, will be reshaping what gamers think is possible on a mobile device later this year. It will feature a story told across 8 chapters, pay to play without microtransactions, hidden elements to discover, post-launch DLC, PvP and PvE multiplayer added post-launch, character progression, and full controller support.
Pascal’s Wager sets the players in the footsteps of Terrance, a courier living in a dystopian world where the sun has sunk to the bottom of the sea. For thousands of years, the world has been encased in a black fog for generations. The only respite from the darkness has been found by following the Colossus who emits sparks of light that can disperse the fog. At the start of the story, the Colossus has fallen in the midst of a deadly pandemic. Terrance believes there is a connection to his missing wife. It is up to him to trace her steps as he travels a long, painful journey of rescue and redemption.
The deeply engaging story of Pascal’s Wager is told through the use of high-fidelity graphics, music, special effects, and mechanics. These unique mobile features are all part of a proprietary mobile game technology that will allow Tipsworks Studios to push the boundaries of the mobile game space in order to create a full PC gaming experience on mobile devices. Players will forget they are on the phone or tablet as they experience a fully featured action game that includes a large-scale world map, exploration elements, a diverse set of enemies, cutscenes, and a deeply engaging narrative.
Tipsworks Studios is committed to changing the impression many have of a “typical” mobile title. This begins with Pascal’s Wager being a free-to-try game, with chapters being purchasable at small costs individually or as a whole. Like great console and PC games, Pascal’s Wager will feature DLC and add-ons that will extend the story and introduce new characters similar to expansions.
Pascal’s Wager will be released on Apple’s App Store at the end of 2019. PC and console versions of the game will be released in 2020. For more information, visit the official website.
