In 1979 Revolution: Black Friday players are immersed in the turbulent real-world events of the Iranian uprising. The gameplay features a story-driven narrative, following the lives of various characters living during this time, with players making choices that effect the story line.

You play as Reza Shirazi, a young photojournalist who returns home to find his people protesting the ruling King, the Shah. Armed with your camera, you capture the emotionally-charged stories and events unfolding on the streets and in the shadows.

The game is written and directed by Navid Khonsari, who has worked on other popular titles including GTA: Vice City, Alan Wake and Resident Evil 7. Khonsari grew up in Iran but left with his family after the revolution.

Regarded by Iranian officials as ‘pro-American propaganda’, sales of the game have been banned in the country and Khonsari has been accused of being a U.S. spy.

The game will release for PlayStation 4 on 1st August, Nintendo Switch on 2nd August and Xbox One on 3rrd August 2018.
