City of Brass is an Arabian Nights-inspired, first-person rogue-lite adventure from the BioShock veterans at Uppercut Games, and will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 4th 2018.

City of Brass follows a cunning thief on a heist to obtain fabled treasure hidden in the heart of the opulent ruins. Armed with a bullwhip and blade, players will lash their way through legions of damned souls that haunt this legendary labyrinth, while pilfering relics and other riches contained within its walls.

The versatile whip is used not only to disarm, trip, and stun enemies, but allows players to swing to safety or obtain objects that otherwise would be out of reach. The whip also has the ability to turn City of Brass’ dangerous environment against itself. Players can wield it to manipulate hazards from a safe distance and spring deadly traps on unsuspecting enemies.

With shifting streets that ensure no two playthroughs are ever the same, players will need to be tenacious and make good use of their knowledge from past runs to press further into the stronghold if they want to claim the city’s ultimate prize, and perhaps even reverse the curse.

Ed Orman, co-founder and designer, Uppercut Games, said of the game, “City of Brass is a fast-paced hack-and-slash adventure leaping from the pages of Arabian Nights. We hope players will enjoy plundering the city for its treasures when the game launches this May.”
