Joining in on the celebrations at Gamescom, Quantic Dream has now unveiled Under the Waves. As its name suggests, the new title thrusts players into the world of deep-sea exploration, but with a track record of games like Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, it’s no surprise that Quantic Dream has also given the game a deep, pensive narrative experience.
As the company describes, players will take over the character of professional diver Stan in a techno-futuristic ’70s period. Diving deep under the North Sea, “Stan retreads further into his self-imposed solitude” and “starts to experience strange events far beneath the waves.” The ultimate decision lying ahead of him will decide whether he stays “lost in the depths forever” or “breaks free to the surface and to the rest of his life.”
Other details remain scarce at this point, but Quantic Dream expects to launch the game sometime in 2023 for PlayStation and Xbox platforms as well as PC, so those interested should stay tuned for more updates to come.
