Square Enix’s enigmatic story-driven game The Quiet Man will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on Nov. 1

The game was first teased at this year’s E3, with an interesting trailer that focused on live-action visuals. The latest trailer for The Quiet Man repeats this pattern, starting off with live-action actors as the titular quiet man wanders around a dark and gritty city and an elegant lounge pianist takes the stage at the mysterious Club Moonrise.

Before long the visuals switch, offering a glimpse of the game’s graphics, and the rest of the trailer shifts from live-action to computer animated. According to Square Enix, the game is designed to be able to complete in one sitting.

The Quiet Man is developed by Square Enix and Human Head Studios. Its official synopsis is as follows:

Unraveling within a single night, players take the role of deaf protagonist Dane as he fights his way through a “soundless” world to discover the motives behind the kidnapping of a songstress from a mysterious masked man. Embark on an adrenaline-fueled motion picture like experience which can be completed in one sitting.

From Nov. 1 to 15, the game will be discounted 10% from its $14.99 price.
