The third episode of République — indie developer Camouflaj's episodic stealth action series — will launch on Oct. 23, the studio announced today.
Episode 3: Ones and Zeroes will launch for iOS through the iTunes App Store.
At the same time, the full available series — including Episode 1: Exordium and Episode 2: Metamorphosis — will launch for Android for the first time thanks to a partnership with Darkwind Media. These three episodes will be available through Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
Episode 3 will be available for $4.99 and requires having purchased both previous episodes to play. During the new episode's launch week, Episode 1 will be reduced to $2.99 on both iOS and Android. Alternatively, players can purchase a season pass for $14.99 that grants access to all five episodes as they are available.
République is a five-episode series that tells the story of Hope, a woman born and raised in an isolated facility and subjected to mysterious experiments. Players must free Hope and navigate through a totalitarian territory while unraveling what's happening within the facility.
Episode 3 will focus on building a case against those who held Hope in the facility with the help from the editor-in-chief of the state's newspaper and her secret spy network. The episode will also introduce a new weapon — a crowd-control mine — as well as a new puzzle variation and new abilities to delay guards and pinpoint enemies on a map.
According to designer Ryan Payton, Ones and Zeroes is the longest episode in the series to date, coming in at over three hours.
