Reactive Turn-Based RPG Clair Obscur: Expedition 33 Announced

Inspired by classic JRPGs and action titles alike, Sandfall Interactive revealed their new title Clair Obscur: Expedition 33 during the recent Xbox Games Showcase.

In this title, players will join Gustave and his fellow Expeditioners as they set out to break the Paintress’ cycle of death for good. Along the way, players will overcome powerful enemies and fight to save the future of this dreamlike world.

Clair Obscur: Expedition 33 will pay host to reactive turn-based battles, a mature and moving narrative, and an evocative art style that has been inspired by French and Parisienne art and architecture.
