Phigames and Dear Villagers have announced today that Metroidvania hacking adventure Recompile will be arriving for Xbox Series X and Series S on August 19, also joining Xbox Game Pass on the same day.

The game is said to feature "stunning visuals, intense combat, tight 3D platforming, and an environmental physics-based hacking mechanic", with the game's entire narrative taking place within 1 second of real time.

Recompile offers multiple endings based on your actions, and you can "repair systems, restore lost data, hack or destroy enemies, all whilst uncovering the truth about the Hypervisor and the original purpose of the Mainframe."

You're looking at a retail price of $24.99 / £19.99 for this one, but keep in mind there's no Xbox One version.

Witness the birth of sapient AI in this sprawling atmospheric hacking adventure. Combining traditional Metroidvania mechanics with a dynamic branching narrative system, Recompile challenges players to explore, fight, hack and survive. Discover the many secrets beneath the ancient digital landscape, and prepare for system-wide reconfiguration.
