The new game from the team behind BioShock, Judas, was announced at The Game Awards with a trailer that showcases Ken Levine’s world-building mastery and some elements familiar to longtime fans.
It is the first game developed by Ghost Story Games, which rose from the ashes of Irrational Games in 2017. Despite its rather limited length, the Judas trailer shows a lot to get excited about.

Judas Official Trailer – The Game Awards 2022
The official trailer, which runs 1:29 minutes, is impressive, especially for those familiar with Levine’s previous work on the BioShock and System Shock series. When it comes to immersive simulations, there are few names that can match what this man’s visions have given gamers over two decades.
More exciting, however, are the powers shown. The main character has a kind of stopwatch built into his left hand that seems to simulate the styles of the Plasmids and Vigors in front of them. Flames emanate from their hands, which can be used as some sort of ranged weapon. In particular, we see an injured woman approaching our heroine with a crowbar in her hand as she is engulfed in flames, which may be a throwback to the opening scenes of the original BioShock.
What Levine game would be complete without decadence and beauty? You can definitely find pop culture and style. There’s also traditional weapons like the crossbow, which is based more on the Cyberpunk/Sci-fi edge than the Randian dystopian setting before.
We can’t wait for it to launch next year. No release date has been announced yet, but we’ll give you more as soon as possible.
