There is still a ways to go until The Sinking City launches, March 21st of 2019, and it looks like the team over at Frogwares is taking that time to make sure the game lives up to our hype. Just like any good developer should. Given that time, it looks like they are also giving us all some fast and quick updates for the game to make sure we know what is going on in the madness that is the development of The Sinking City. It is nice of them to do, but will most likely only appeal to those interested in seeing how their games are made, like myself, and only bring a little more hype to the rest of you out there.
In this first video we have here, we get to see that the lighting and weather of The Sinking City have been given some work. It looks like things are more dynamic and fitting with the game as well as having a full day/night cycle mixed in. Something that the weather works with to make sure we feel like we immersed more in the story we are going to help unfold. Something we should all be hoping for with the insanity that it looks like The Sinking City will dive into. It is another of those Cthulhu titles coming out so that may be a good or a bad thing depending on your take from it all. I love it and you can see if you will too by watching the latest for the game.
