Volume, the long awaited follow up from Mike Bithell, creator of Thomas Was Alone, has launched today for Windows, OS X, PS4 and PS Vita.
Volume is a modern ‘reimagining of the Robin Hood legend’. You play as Robert Locksley, a petty thief whose main weapon is Stealth. Gisborne Industries have taken over England, running the nation as a corporatocracy, and you’re going to stop him. With 100 levels of stealth action, and a range of different gadgets to help you get them, there’s plenty of varied stealth-action to be found through the campaign.
There’s also a fully featured level editor, so the community will be able to create are share maps, adding even more content and diversity to the title.
Danny Wallace returns once again to provide narration for a witty AI, along-side Charlie McDonnell staring as Robert himself, and the critically-acclaimed actor Andy Serkis providing the voice of Guy Gisborne, the main enemy. Another familiar face in Bithell’s work, David Housden makes a return with another incredible soundtrack, which is also now available to download via iTunes, or as DLC on Steam.
Reviews for Volume are already coming in, and they’re good! It looks like it’s living up to the hype, and we’re going to try and get a key to perform our own review.
Volume can be purchased on Steam for £14.99/$19.99, with a 10% launch discount (£13.49/17.99) until 24 August, and on PSN for PS4 and Vita.
