The Sinking City

A new trailer accompanies word that The Sinking City is now available for pre-order.

BigBen and Frogwares Studio released a new gameplay video today showing off "A Delicate Matter," a mission within The Sinking City. The focus of this one is on how the main investigation mechanics work within the game.

We've had a lot of coverage on this game over the previous few months, so be sure to check that out if you'd like some more details. Pre-orders are available now with the game looking to be released on June 27 on the PC via the Epic Games Store (affiliate link), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

During this mission, Mr. Throgmorthon, head of one of the leading families in Oakmont, asks Charles to look into a delicate matter: a receiver of stolen art has disappeared just before closing the sale of a valuable item, and Throgmorthon wants it back at all costs. As the investigation unfolds, the player finds out that the story is far more complicated than it first seemed. Without being prompted by the game, the player must question more and more witnesses throughout the town, and use logic to get to the bottom of things.
