Spy on your tenants as Beholder hits PS4 and Xbox One in January 2018
12 Dec, 2017
Beholder is coming to consoles, and as a state-installed landlord, you can now spy on and report subversive people from the comfort of your living room.
Curve Digital has announced that it is publishing the Complete Edition of Beholder, a game about surveillance in an authoritarian state. The Complete Edition will be available on PS4 and Xbox One in January next year. Specifically, the PS4 version will release on 16th January while the Xbox One version will follow on 19th January. The PS4 version will have a 10% discount during the launch week. The Complete Edition includes the Blissful Sleep DLC, which is a prequel to the main game.
In the game, you play as Carl, a state-installed landlord whose job is to spy on his tenants using hidden cameras, covertly search their belongings, profile them for your superiors and report them if you think they are attempting to subvert the government. You might have to throw your morals out of the window to your job, but you don’t have to. You can choose to empathise with your tenants and retain your humanity… which would put yourself at risk. Balancing this tightrope is the chief challenge on offer in the game.
Have a look at the trailer for the Complete Edition:
Beholder’s developer is the Russia-based studio Warm Lamp Games. The game was originally published by Russian publisher Alawar Entertainment, but it looks like Curve Digital is taking over for the game’s console release.
Beholder originally released in November 2016 and is currently available on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. Here’s the official website.
