Whore of the Orient gameplay footage leaked

New, 45 comments

The first gameplay footage from L.A. Noire creator Brandan McNamara's upcoming game, Whore of the Orient, is available online via VideoGamer.com.

The short video, which you can watch right here, gives you a look at the next-gen game's open world, its main characters, along with overall combat mechanics.

Whore of the Orient was announced last August for Windows PC and next-gen consoles and will be set during 1936 in Shanghai, described as the "Paris of the East." The title takes place in a China that had begun modernizing due to Western influence, until the Kuomintang political party started to roll back imperialist changes and viciously suppress Communism under Chiang Kai-shek. A group of Western cops, the International Police Force, is attempting to keep the peace in the meantime.

Earlier in April, the development studio at Kennedy Miller Mitchell, a group formed by former Team Bondi members who previously worked on L.A. Noire, was hit with layoffs as the game doesn't currently have a publisher. Following layoffs, KMM's Doug Mitchell emphasized the game is still in development.

The team has since received $200,000 in funding from Screen NSW, a branch of the Australian government in New South Wales.
