Game Overview

Designed to be played in two parts, THE QUIET MAN™ delivers an immersive story driven cinematic action experience seamlessly blending high-production live action, realistic CG and pulse-pounding action gameplay.

More than a chase against the mysterious masked man, players will come up against an infamous gang and experience Dane’s own battle with his internal demon known as “The Quiet Man”, who will be the ultimate mystery in the story. Embark on an adrenaline-fueled motion picture like experience, which players can enjoy in one sitting.
