Video For As Dusk Falls Launches July 19 with Xbox Game Pass


As Dusk Falls launches July 19 for Xbox Series X|S and PC with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, Windows, and Steam, and on Xbox One and supported mobile phones, tablets, and lower-spec PCs via Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Pack your bags because it’s time for a trip to Two Rock County, where the decisions you make may have unexpected consequences. As Dusk Falls is available now, and there are several ways to play this uncompromising crime drama.

As Dusk Falls is an interactive narrative for all levels of players, something meant to be experienced with a group. Inspired by prestige TV shows, the team at INTERIOR/NIGHT has crafted an uncompromising tale of family, resilience, and sacrifice. You will learn more about the Walker and Holt families and how their lives were destined to intersect. You’ll make choices within the game to navigate tough scenarios like a hostage negotiation, a robbery, family conflict, and more.


Choose where you want to play


As Dusk Falls is available with Xbox Game Pass for PC, console, and cloud. It’s available for purchase on Steam, Windows, and Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can also skip the install and play from the cloud on Xbox consoles, Windows PCs, and phones and tablets. For those that like to game on the go, you can play As Dusk Falls controller-free from the cloud with native touch controls available on your supported mobile device.


Choose who you want to play with


With choice and consequence being a main theme in As Dusk Falls, multiplayer adds a unique twist.  Lobbies support up to eight players at a time and can consist of online friends, couch co-op, or a mix of both! It is also cross-platform, so no matter where your friends are gaming, they will be able to join you. The multiplayer functionality in-game allows everyone to vote for the dialog or action they would like to see carried out within the game, and the most popular vote wins. You may not always get your way!


Choose how you want to play


There are three modes to choose from in As Dusk Falls. Solo, Multiplayer, and Broadcast. Solo is for the players that want to be in total control of their own story and play through the game without input from others. Multiplayer mode allows you to create a lobby and invite up to seven others to play – online, couch co-op, or a mix. Broadcast mode connects to a Twitch account and allows the streamer to broadcast the game and their chat has the ability vote for options on screen. Votes will get tallied up in real time as they are entered in chat.


Choose your input device


We wanted As Dusk Falls to be a story that people can enjoy with little to no gaming experience. This is why we created the As Dusk Falls Companion App, a free app available for iOS and Android devices. The Companion App works as an input device – control actions in game with a swipe on your phone. You must be connected to the same Wi-Fi that the game is running on and the game host must own a copy of the game.


However you choose to play As Dusk Falls, we hope the choices you’re compelled to make in-game spark conversations, reveal insights about yourself, and make you want to replay the story again and again to uncover vastly different outcomes for the characters and explore hidden nuances behind every decision.

As Dusk Falls is an original interactive drama from INTERIOR/NIGHT that explores the entangled lives of two families across thirty years. Starting in 1998 with a robbery-gone-wrong in small town Arizona, the choices you make have a powerful impact on the characters’ lives in this uncompromising story of betrayal, sacrifice and resilience.

Replay the story again and again to uncover vastly different outcomes for the characters and explore hidden nuances behind every decision. Will your characters survive unscathed? What kind of people will they ultimately become?

Drive the lives and relationships of multiple characters in a decades-spanning story told across two intense books.

Uncompromising Crime Drama. The cinematic story is brought to life by the performance of actors that are digitally rendered into a beautiful art style, creating a unique experience that plays like a motion graphic novel.

Sacrifice vs Survival. Can you break free from your family’s toxic influence? What will you sacrifice for the ones you love? Can you overcome your past? Your decisions will shape the characters’ fates.

Interwoven Destinies. Follow two families in their struggle to survive, protect, and endure through challenges rooted in the previous generations’ mistakes.

Experience Together. Reveal insights about yourself and those you play with as you discover the underlying values of your decisions in cooperative gameplay with up to 8 players at a time, locally or online (or a mix). The As Dusk Falls companion app makes making choices in game easy, just use your phone or tablet to vote with or against your friends. (Online console multiplayer requires Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold, subscriptions sold separately).
