Ghost Story Announces BioShock-Like Judas

Ghost Story Games, helmed by BioShock creator Ken, has just announced Judas, which looks in many ways like a spiritual successor. It's a first-person shooter with a retro-futuristic aesthetic, boasting magical futuristic hand-powers. It speaks for itself.

It was announced as a world premiere at The Game Awards by Geoff Keighley, coinciding with the launch of its Steam and EGS pages. The description reads, "A disintegrating starship. A desperate escape plan. You are the mysterious and troubled Judas. Your only hope for survival is to make or break alliances with your worst enemies. Will you work together to fix what you broke – or will you leave it to burn?"

You can wishlist it right now on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Steam, and Epic Games Store. It's unclear when we can expect it to launch, but if you're itching for another BioShock-like experience, this looks to be the perfect antidote.

Already, there are a few key themes that have popped up in the screenshots. Chiefly, a propaganda poster saying "Eat the Cookie", which is continued in another grungier-looking screenshot that has a darker poster of a woman eating a gory heart-like object, with the tagline, "Entitled. Be Grateful for what's given to you".

There's also two magic powers on display, one seemingly electric (being used against a robot), and one fire, though this isn't used against anyone or anything. It's simply sprawling out of someone's hand, likely in the discovery phase of the ability. You know the one, when the protagonist uncovers a new incredibly painful power that initially scares them before they end up using to obliterate everything.

In other news, the next BioShock has found its narrative lead in Ghost of Tsushima and Watch Dogs Legion writer Liz Albl. She has also worked on Far Cry 4, its DLC, and Far Cry 5. "The dream is real!" she tweeted. It's unclear when we can expect the next BioShock, but it was announced back in 2019. However, at the time, it was said to be "several years" from release. Reportedly, it'll take place in the Antarctica wil a fictional city called Borealis (not to be confused with original plans for Half-Life 2: Episode 3).
