Flintlock: The Siege Of Dawn is an open-world action/RPG where you'll utilize guns, magic and your animal companion to fight for the fate of humanity.

Join humanity’s last stand as Gods and guns collide in an all-new action-RPG open-world adventure.

The Door to the Afterlife has been opened, allowing the old God’s army of the undead to escape from within. The living are on the brink of extinction. It’s time for the coalition army to retake their world. Embrace vengeance, gunpowder and magic and embark on an epic journey to lead mankind’s final siege against the tide of the dead.

Your battle begins now.

One of the core principles for the development of Flintlock is that the world & characters within it are as important as the gunpowder and hatchet combat that drives the action so the team have put together a behind the scenes look at the process.

Join A44 Games’ Art Director, Robert Bruce, and Principal Environment Artist, Steven Chen, as they share details of the rich and vibrant world the studio has created as the backdrop to their tale.

Inspired by the nature and landscapes of A44’s native New Zealand, Flintlock is aesthetically diverse which not only influences the game’s visuals but also adds a depth and fullness to this brand-new world. From towering citadels to cavernous ruins and far-reaching desert sands, Flintlock is designed for exploration and rewards players who go the extra mile to uncover even more.

Alongside environmental design, Bruce and Chen shed light on Flintlock’s character design, and the high level of detail in every encounter that players will have with the gods that rule the game’s world. As a small studio, A44 are at the forefront of design leveraging tools such as Unity’s MetaHuman Creator to bring their characters to life through highly detailed animation.

Key Features:

  • Forge a bond like no other: Join Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, and your companion Enki, a strange creature gifted with magical powers, in their personal vendetta against the gods.
  • Defeat the most powerful beings in creation: Challenge the Gods. Master a demanding yet rewarding combat system blending axe wielding, gunplay, magic and more. Unleash powerful combos and embrace your creativity with every encounter.
  • Make your mark on a vast battlefield: Explore a dangerous open world. Fly through the desert sands, journey through cavernous ruins, and unveil the secrets that lie in the towering City of Dawn. Reassemble the Blackstream sappers, a team of crack explosives and weaponry experts, to lend their skills in the last siege against the gods.

Flintlock: The Siege Of Dawn is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam / Epic Games Store) in 2022, and will be available on Xbox Game Pass on launch day.
