Pistol Whip’s Smoke and Thunder Cinematic Campaign Coming August 12

Grab your VR headsets – the second cinematic campaign for Cloudhead Games’ Pistol Whip, Smoke and Thunder, will make its debut on August 12, 2021.

While Pistol Whip’s first update 2089 brought players into the future, this five scene cinematic campaign will take players into the past as they take part in an immersive Western adventure. Players will get acquainted with the sisters Jessie (voiced by Victoria Hogan, Kingdom Come: Deliverance) and Tess (voiced by Avalon Penrose, Hades).

To bring the experience to life, illustrations by fan-favorite comic artist Fico Ossio and colourist Raciel Avila will make their appearance. The Heavy, Black Pistol Fire, Bones UK, Devora, and Magic Sword have also lent their talents to the game’s soundtrack.

New to the game is the “Styles” system sandbox, which gives players the chance to combine their preferred weapon type with up to five modifiers to make the action to their liking. Players can also challenge friends or compete solo, proving their mettle with leaderboards that have been uniquely generated for that “Style’s” choice.

These styles include Brawler, which transforms the previous No Ammo modifier into a melee mode. The Burstfire from 2089, along with the new weapons from “Smoke & Thunder” will also be available in all scenes with Styles. Featured Styles, which will pay host to weekly style choices curated by Cloudhead’s developers and players, will also be included.
