The Bearded Ladies have been quite proflic in recent years with their debut work, Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden launch in December of 2018, which was then supported by DLC in 2019. In 2020 the team launched the not as well-received Corruption 2029, before turning their sights to what has become Miasma Chronicles. Indicating their faith in the title, 505 Games opted to make Miasma Chronicles the “One More Thing” moment of their presentation following trailers for Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, as well as fellow new titles Among The Trolls and Stray Blade. No gameplay was shown, so players will need to extrapolate from the aforementioned description and the trailer if they wish to envisage what the playing experience will be like.
Miasma Chronicles is currently listed as launching in 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
