Nobody Wants to Die is an Upcoming Noir-Inspired Cyberpunk Narrative Game, Out in 2024

Coming in 2024, "Nobody Wants to Die" is a narrative-driven cyberpunk game announced by developer Critical Hit Games and its publisher PLAION. Slated for release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S, the game promises an innovative narrative set in the futuristic landscape of New York City in the year 2329. Technology has reached new heights, allowing humans to live indefinitely by transferring their consciousness to different bodies, given that they can pay the cost.

The heart of the game beats with the story of James Karra, a detective in the city's Mortality Department, who delves deep into the mystery of a serial assailant menacing the city's affluent and influential populace. Players will navigate through this advantaged world, leveraging Karra's unique ability to manipulate time, alongside cutting-edge technology, to dissect crime scenes and gather evidence critical to solving the case.

Drawing heavy inspiration from the noir genre, "Nobody Wants to Die" immerses players in a cyberpunk realm peppered with noir elements, crafted carefully using Unreal Engine 5. This combination promises a visually stunning and narratively rich experience for players eager to explore the dark corners of a futuristic New York City.
