After the Bard’s Tale, InXile Entertainment seemed to fade away, but recently the Newport Beach studio has been picking up a wave of work. They’re responsible for the upcoming Line Rider game and Hei$t, where you play as a group of robbers.
It’s 1969, the summer of love in San Francisco. Enter Johnny Sutton, fresh out of jail and a descendant from a long line of big-time thieves, including his father who was gunned down during a job some years back. Playing as Johnny, and together with his Uncle Sal and reunited crew, players are set pull off dozens of heists that will inevitably make a name for him as the greatest bank robber of all time.
In addition to knocking off banks, each with their own set security precautions, throughout the city, players will be highly motivated to pull off further jobs. These include raiding bars, restaurants, strip clubs, armoured cars, and more in order to acquire the bigger and better tools needed to penetrate the increasingly more difficult banks.
Unfortunately InXile’s release window might be a problem. Hei$t is a Q4 game for the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and it just so happens Grand Theft Auto IV is coming out around the same time too. Past the break is another screenshot where you can see the characters up close.
