Initially, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn was slated to arrive in early 2023, but the team did not provide a release window, and now we will have to wait another year to play the awaited project. However, it remains unclear whether it is planned for an early 2024 release or in the second half of the year. A44 Games may update the community more in the near future as the title progresses further in development and polishing.
If you are unfamiliar, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is a next-gen Souls-like set in an open-world action RPG world that is best defined as a mix of gunplay with huge pinches of fantasy and magic. The title brewed by the Ashen devs pits the players in a bloody warzone with a highly rewarding yet tough combat system. Soar the skies in the hot desert sand or venture deep into the perilous ruins in a quest to save humanity from a looming threat.
The entry is set to release next year on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC through Steam and the Epic Games Store. Moreover, it will be added to the huge roster of the Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate as a day-one launch game, which is nothing short of practical for Xbox owners.
