The Quiet Man’s new trailer reveals an eerie storyline

Another trailer shows off the combat

Square Enix’s mysterious new project, The Quiet Man, was first teased at this year’s E3 with a short live-action trailer. The publisher revealed more details about the game today with a trailer that shows off its combat and a more plot-heavy one.

The plot-focused trailer mixes live action and CG and follows the protagonist of the game, Dane, as he navigates a mysterious nightclub and cityscape. There are flashes of ominous-looking items — a note made of cut-out letters, a voodoo doll, a bird bound with red ribbon, a hooded masked figure. Overall, it’s quite eerie and, much like the synopsis describes, has an overall cinematic quality to it.

The 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.

There are no live-action clips in the combat-focused trailer, however, and the fighting seems to be focused on hand-to-hand combat, dodging and countering.

The Quiet Man will be released as a download-only title on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam. It will cost $14.99. There is no release date yet.
