The heist game genre enters a new era with
Den of Wolvesthe new project from the creators of
Payday. Goodbye to the modern world, it is now on a techno-thriller theme that banks are being robbed. Without a release date, the developers still announced an early access release on PC via Steam before the game is released on consoles.
Unveiled on the occasion of the Game Awards, Den of Wolves focuses much more on its story than the studio’s previous productions. But that’s not all that changes here, since heisting is no longer the only way to get what you want. Industrial espionage, sabotage or even assassination are new methods to adopt to achieve your goals. And to make the most of all this, the tools are also evolving. AI therefore makes its entry into hacking, while a concept of biological data transmission helps justify the science fiction aspect of the title.
With this project, 10Chambers wants to reinvent the heist game genre by expanding its possibilities. There is still talk of making it a cooperative title so that players can prepare their plans. However, you will have to be patient, since in addition to having no release date, the gameplay has not been shown. So we don’t really know what to expect, even if the studio has already confirmed that it will not be an open world.
