The Quiet Man is an action adventure game that pulls players through the tale of a deaf protagonist, Dane, searching for a masked man behind a mysterious kidnapping. As you play as Dane, you’ll actually experience the story as he does, with no sound or speech minus a couple of cues to register dealing damage or taking hits.
However, a free update that Square Enix announced during a recent livestream, that will drop one week after the game’s launch, is set to add a mode similar to that of a New Game+.
Upon this second playthrough of the game, you will be able to be able to experience the title with the sounds and voices of what was once a mute world. This will provide for a different playing experience to compare to the world that Dane has to live in.
Square Enix also announced that Imogen Heap, a two time Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, has composed an original track for the game titled ‘The Quiet’. ‘More details about the track will be revealed later this year’, they teased.
In case you missed it, you can find the trailer, along with previously announced details in our last article on the game.
The Quiet Man is a digital-only title that will be released on November 1st for PlayStation 4 and Steam.
Author’s Take: I’m super hyped for this title, the visuals, premise and, ironically enough, the sound design have sucked me right in. And now with the details of this update, I can’t get my hands on this game soon enough.
