Disney has officially announced a new game from developer Bithell Games, TRON: Identity, which opened up the Disney & Marvel D23 2022 Showcase live stream. Tron: Identity will be the first video game based on Disney’s Tron franchise released for PC or consoles since 2004’s Tron 2.0 and is currently available for pre-order on Steam with an expected 2023 release window.
What is TRON: Identity?
TRON: Identity is described as a visual novel adventure that follows the Query, a detective program that must solve ‘an unprecedented crime’ in The Grid, the iconic main location of the series. The game will promise a mix of puzzles, several choices, and consequence mechanics, which can lead to multiple endings.
Indie developer Bithell Games is best known for having been behind several other indie hits, including Thomas, Was Alone, John Wick Hex – an action strategy game set in the John Wick universe – and plenty more.
“Something has been taken. Enter a new Grid and forge alliances via visual novel gameplay, uncovering truths through Identity Disc puzzles. Make critical decisions and plot your own course in a world without a creator,” the official description reads.
In a new Grid, forgotten by its creator and left alone to evolve without User intervention, an unprecedented crime has been committed. The Repository stands at the center of this society. In the aftermath of a break-in, the future of this Grid hangs in the balance.
TRON: Identity is a visual novel adventure following Query, a detective program tasked with uncovering the mystery of what was taken and by whom. Finding yourself in a world built on unstable foundations and filled with whispered knowledge, it’s up to you to question suspects and investigate your surroundings to piece together the truth.
TRON: Identity is expected to release sometime in 2023.
