Identity theft is no joke in real life, and it appears even more serious in the world of Foreclosed, a third-person shooter coming next year from Antab Studios. 

In the cyberpunk world of Foreclosed, Evan Kapnos has had his identity repossessed by a powerful corporation, along with all his implants, and they're about to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Check out the trailer above, which premiered on IGN's Summer of Games (opens in new tab) today.

"Utilize the weapons and tech you find along the way to fight back against the unknown assailants who chase you through the city," reads Foreclosed's Steam store page (opens in new tab). "Modify your Symbiotic Pistol with Explosive Rounds or go silent and equip the Stealth Bullets mod. Use superhero-like abilities to fight opponents and manipulate your surroundings with Brain Implant upgrades, use telekinesis and launch your enemies into the air or hurl huge objects at groups."

As you can see Foreclosed has a heavily styled look that gives it the appearance of a graphic novel, with comic book style panels, speech bubbles, and sound effects. The release date is set for sometime in 2021, but in the meantime you can check out Foreclosed's official website (opens in new tab). You can also watch some gameplay below, though keep in mind it's pre-alpha footage.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
