“We’re so excited to launch Clandestine on Early Access so that we can start gathering player feedback and incorporate that into the final version of the game”, said Jonas Wæver, creative director at Logic Artists. “We know that players will enjoy this unique asymmetrical cooperative gameplay and look forward to hearing what they think!”
With Clandestine launching on Early Access, developers guarantee a spoiler FREE version, meaning that players have access to four Challenge maps to experience the core mechanics of the game without giving away Clandestine’s intricate plot through the Story mode which will be available in the full launch version. In addition to the Challenge maps, Logic Artists has introduced three playable game modes, including Cleaner, Smash & Grab and Exfiltrate.
The ‘Spy’ and ‘Hacker’ characters, central to the theme and gameplay, also each have unique features and abilities that must be used together harmoniously in order to achieve success. The Spy has a selection of weapons to equip, including three pistols (PPK, SR1, MK23), two ammo types (Lethal, Non-lethal), gadgets and grenades (Banshee, Remote Pager, Remote Modem, Fragmentation Grenade, Flashbang) and two outfits (Tactical Gear, Low Profile – civilian outfit), as well as a lock-picking option to help infiltrate secure areas without calling attention to themselves. The ‘Hacker’ player in Clandestine holds the important role of blocking security cameras, bribing guards, hacking security doors, arranging dead drops of ammo and health, guiding the Spy through intricate mazes, alerting the Spy to nearby danger and generally providing instructions about what is going on outside of the Spy’s visual field. For the Early Access launch, Logic Artists has also included the ability for the Hacker to tag enemies so that they are visible to the Spy, even through walls.

The year is 1996, five years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a string of accidents and murders have gone unnoticed by the public, but have put the world of espionage on high alert.

Featuring asymmetrical cooperative gameplay (Hacker and Spy team), Clandestine transports players to locations around the globe, where they must use tactics and stealth to infiltrate corporate headquarters, hideouts and safe houses to determine who is behind the string of murders and lift the curtain of conspiracy.
