,Winter Ember is a stealth game driven by player exploration and intrigue,” said Blowfish Studios CEO Ben Lee in a press release. “Within the darkness, the truth can be revealed, and we can’t wait to let players uncover the mysteries of Anargal when Winter Ember launches on April 19.”

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

You are Arthur Artorias—the sole survivor of a massacre that devastated your family’s legacy and tore them out of the history books. Thought to be dead, you emerge from exile eight years later, the faceless man kindled by the flame and seeking vengeance.

Embark on an adventure unraveling a dark tale filled with twisted characters, centered around a militant religion hell bent on keeping control.

Key Features

  • A True Stealth Experience – As Arthur, you must stick to the shadows, infiltrate homes and explore hidden passageways; but, be careful not to be spotted! Choose your playstyle: knocking out enemies may keep them quiet for some time, but they will eventually wake up; A quick slice to the throat may be a more permanent solution, but the bloodstain you leave on the carpet might be a dead giveaway! Keep your wits about you, dispose of bodies, peek through keyholes and pickpocket unsuspecting victims.
  • Deep Arrow Crafting System – Prepare for your mission by planning your loadout. With over 30 arrows to craft, experimentation is key to your success! Do you craft a smoke arrow to blind your opponent, or do you add on a poison element to create poisonous gas? Use your arrows offensively or defensively: break down weak walls with a blunt arrow to surprise your enemy, or use a rope arrow to reach a higher place and take out your enemies from a distance.
  • Skill Tree – Customize your playstyle from three distinct skill trees—stealth, combat, and utility. Unlock over 70 unique passive and active skills to choose from and seek vengeance your way.
  • Explore A Dark World – Return home to the cold Victorian town of Anargal, on the verge of technological breakthrough. Infiltrate and explore vast environments brimming with treasure and mystery. From rival gangs to unique characters, approach each scenario in a myriad of ways. Take advantage of the environment, find solutions to every problem, and move past any challenge standing in your way.
