What you need to know
- Cloudpunk is an open world narrative-and-exploration-driven game from Merge Games.
- The title has been out on PC, but is now officially making its way to consoles today.
- You can buy the digital version of the game right now, or pre-order the physical release that comes out November 10, 2020.
We reported on Cloudpunk back when it was announced to be coming to consoles, as a fun and more indie alternative to the upcoming heavy-hitter Cyberpunk 2077 that shares some of the same themes (read: cyberpunk). Now, Cloudpunk is officially releasing on consoles, and is now available for Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch, so you play wherever you are. There's even a new trailer releasing alongside the console edition of the game.
In Cloudpunk, you play as an adventurous delivery person operating out of a generally rain-soaked cyberpunk city, and it's your job to deliver packages, and try not to ask too many questions about what those packages are. Exploration and narrative are the two focuses of Cloudpunk, rather than intense action, which may be right up the alley of many players who enjoy these unique indie-style games.
If you're interested, you can buy the digital version of Cloudpunk right now on each respective platform, but it looks like there's also a physical release that's up for pre-order on Amazon for PS4 and Xbox One, which is great to see. Finally, Cloudpunk will be backwards compatible with the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, so if you're grabbing one of the powerful new next-gen consoles, you'll be able to play Cloudpunk day one.
Explore a futuristic city
They're just normal packages, I'm sure.
