Lash, Slash, Trick & Trap


Armed with a variety of weapons and a versatile whip, lash, slash, trick and trap your way through the City of Brass, a first-person Arabian Nights adventure from senior BioShock developers.


This City has Teeth!

Leaping from the pages of the Arabian Nights, adventure awaits in the accursed City of Brass – a place of legend, filled with danger and reward. Infested with mischievous spirits and deadly traps, its shifting streets are brimming with the wealth of a nation.

Assume the role of a cunning thief, battling to reach a fabled treasure at the city’s heart, wielding weapons & a whip that can be used to disarm, trip or stun enemies, to swing to safety, grab inaccessible objects or even break through flimsy barricades.

Leap across pits, slide under blades, dodge spears, and sidestep poison gas traps – all the while manipulating hazards to your advantage against diverse spirit foes.

Choose Your Adventurer


Play the thieving Fool, vengeful Traveler, spear-wielding Soldier, knife-throwing Brigand, the magical Hellion or the crossbow-toting Revenant! Each character comes with their own weapons, equipment, strengths and weaknesses that accommodate a variety of play-styles.


Collect treasure to increase your score, loot chests for weapon and armor upgrades or powerful relics, pick up objects to hurl at enemies – but get to the exit in time or face death by dervish…

The rhythmic interplay of blade and lash has been carefully tuned along with sprinting, crouching, sliding, leaping and vaulting to give a fluid, balanced and natural feel to the movement and melee.


Incarcerated within the city, most Genies are friendly. Barter your loot for gear, upgrades, secrets, unlocks or protections, or use one of three wishes to unlock a powerful benefit.


Tailor the challenge to your playstyle with Blessings & Burdens - optional modifiers that tweak everything from player health to enemy damage, ensuring City of Brass is tuned for every player.


When your sword just isn’t enough, get creative: smash your enemies with explosive vases, blind them with a brick to the face, blow them up, set them on fire, or force them into traps.


No two playthroughs are ever the same: play, die, and play again, each time using what you’ve learned to get further. Are you tenacious enough to reach the heart of the City of Brass?
