From the developers of BioShock and BioShock 2 comes City of Brass, a first-person adventure game in an Arabian Nights-inspired city. Find treasure, collect weapons/armor and intereact with the environment and objects around you to try to stay alive. Levels are procedurally-generated, complete with traps and pitfalls so no two playthroughs will ever be the same.

Check out the cinematic trailer below:

“We are drawing inspiration from BioShock in terms of the mechanics,” Uppercut Games founder Ed Orman told GameSpot. “We’re developing a combinative approach to the game systems, encouraging players to see how the systems interact with each other. In particular, the combo of whip and sword play into this, allowing the player to manipulate and then hurt enemies.”

City of Brass will be released on PC this fall, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases in 2018.
