“Pull-off an epic heist and salvage a mysterious treasure of otherworldly power to defy the army of the Inquisition. Infiltrate their fortresses. Sneak behind enemy lines. Cleverly combine the magical skills of your crew to take out a variety of enemies with carefully considered tactics.

Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew will be available on the Epic Games Store, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.

Speaking to PC Gamer, Mimimi Games’ communications lead Matthias Kraut said: “In our previous games that had a more realistic setting, we were super limited in what we could do in terms of the character skills, the mechanics and gameplay. But now with Shadow Gambit we go full fantasy and magic; this means we have ghost ships, a magical world, and cursed pirates with supernatural abilities, which gives us a lot of freedom to design meaningful, crazy new mechanics.”
