Two new Xbox limited editions have been reported leaked, including a single-player Southern Gothic adventure

It seems that details about two new Xbox limited editions from Compulsion Games (We Happy Few) and Obsidian Entertainment (The Outer Worlds) have been leaked. The former is called the single-player “Southern Gothic Adventure”.

according to Windows Central, The first game of Compulsion with Microsoft is codenamed Midnight. It’s reportedly a third-person game set in a dark and fantastic world. The protagonist, seen below in the middle section of the concept art, is a dark-skinned female with braided hair. The photo on the right shows a harpy reacher that has undergone various stages of transformation. The photo on the left looks like a harpy’s nest.

Midnight is clearly inspired by the deep South of America and is a “coming-of-age” story. Also, only single player games. But it will obviously not be officially announced or ready for announcement until the next few years.Developer of We Happy Few last month Mentioned It’s working on a new third-person story-driven title, and Midnight certainly seems to be in compliance with the bill.

The second game is from Obsidian Entertainment, codenamed Pentiment. A team of 12 people is developing the game, led by Josh Sawyer, who previously worked on Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity. GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb said Pentiment was inspired by games like Disco Elysium and would be a narrative RPG rather than a combat-focused one.

The game is reportedly a murder mystery set in the 16th century, allowing players to investigate and blame other characters in the game. However, these accusations have consequences. If you are wrong, the snowball effect will occur. The game slowly evolves into a full-fledged conspiracy. The team is also reported to be experimenting with several different gameplay mechanisms, some of which are not final products. Grubbsays Pentiment is targeted for launch in 2022.

If correct, Obsidian is currently very busy – the studio is also working on Avowed and The Outer Worlds 2.
