Glitchpunk Release

New dystopian game, Glitchpunk, is a “top-down” view sci-fi action game from Dark Lord and was inspired by Rockstar’s classic, Grand Theft Auto 2 (GTA 2). The game is set in a Cyberpunk-like dystopian future and boasts high-octane gameplay that lets players brawl, shoot and drive their way around as a glitched-out android bounty hunter.

Publisher, Daedalic Entertainment, announced that Glitchpunk will launch as an Early Access title on Steam and infuses the nostalgia of old-school classics with their own perspective on the issues of our world and future.

What is the official Glitchpunk release date?

The game launched into Early Access on August the 11th 2021. Glitchpunk launched exclusively on Windows PC and can be picked up via the Steam Store. The publishers have noted that they are “pretty confident about the current state of development” and endeavor to release the polished version of the game “within 6 to 8 months”.

This means that the retail version of the game should hit the shelves early next year. Pricing for the retail copy may also be different from the Early Access copy.

“We evaluate the pricing regularly as the game gains features, expands in scope, and moves to beta and release phases,” the publishers noted.
