A Guide to Clockwork Revolution: First Person Steampunk RPG Goodness

Clockwork Revolution is an upcoming captivating steampunk first-person RPG developed by the renowned studio inXile Entertainment.

Set in the vibrant steam-powered metropolis of Avalon, this game promises to deliver a unique and immersive experience where your choices and interactions will shape the course of history. Watching the original Clockwork Revolution trailer, we were struck by its similarity to one of our favorite games – Bioshock Infinite.

According to Chad Moore, the project director of inXile’s Clockwork Revolution, the game is described as more of a blend of two classic RPGs: Arcanum and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. Moore’s involvement in both Arcanum and Vampire adds credibility to this comparison, as Troika Games, the studio behind these titles, is known for crafting unique RPG experiences.

Arcanum is renowned for its exploration of technological vs. magical themes, while Vampire offers a rich gothic atmosphere. By drawing inspiration from these classics, Clockwork Revolution aims to deliver deep world-building, a compelling narrative, and engaging gameplay and honestly, we can’t wait to play it.
