Dustborn release date window announced - it’s headed to PC in 2021

The game's on the way to PC and next-gen consoles some time next year

Dustborn, an action-adventure game about a rag-tag band of misfits from Red Thread Games has just been announced at the Future Game Show live conference. Details are a little sparse on what it’s all about just now, but it seems it features a road trip across America with a group of adventurers – oh, and some robots and friendship thrown in, too. It’s coming to PC and next-gen consoles in 2021.

Our merry band of adventurers is first seen heading down a highway somewhere in the American southwest in a bus, with a robot at the wheel. It’s not long before they encounter a squad of figures in official-looking uniforms and face-obscuring helmets on the road. They’re armed with futuristic rifles, and a military helicopter with twin rotors flies overhead. Trouble.

Dustborn is, according to the trailer, a game about road trips, ghosts, music, family, betrayal, civil war, and a host of other subjects. It’s done in a bright pastel comic book art style, and it looks as though it’ll be a mix of adventure, exploration, and abilities-based action.

Here’s that trailer for you to check out:
