If the name means nothing to you, that’s normal, because this independent studio was recently created.

Dark Passenger thus promises us a multiplayer game, emphasizes cooperation within the same team, but also the competitive aspect. Also, it looks like this next game is promoting a one-of-a-kind “movement system” :
Our movement system will allow players to perform unique feats, such as running over arrows fired by other players, quickly climbing vertical surfaces with shuko claws, or using a ready-made spear as a pole to jump over obstacles.
In addition, the game should also allow for a much higher level of customization., for characters to be attached to players, as well as their weapons and armor.

If so far, few details have been announced, it seems that the developers are aiming for a simultaneous release on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X & S. But to wait, here is the description of the game found on the Dark Passenger website.
A dark time comes for the Land of the Rising Sun when nameless invaders overthrow the incumbent Shogun and seize the throne. All who dared to oppose him not only failed, but also joined his ranks, against their will. As the usurper’s army grows stronger, his movements are closely watched by the wily lords of the shadow world. To find out the origin and the motives of the aggressor, the secret houses of the assassins send their warriors in search of things that belong to him, and that hide a unique power.
By taking on the role of shinobi and kunoichi, players must face the henchmen of the usurper, but also other shinobis who are looking for the same treasures. As they traverse these dark lands, players will be able to jump on rooftops, hide under the floors of huts, climb pagodas, and infiltrate shrines or temples. The verticality of the terrain will provide unlimited movement possibilities and the dynamic weather will surprise the players, with sudden rain, strong dusty wind or dense fog.
Players will encounter many social classes, from simple villagers and beggars to high-ranking nobles and samurai. However, their purpose is to remain invisible and always remain vigilant in the face of threats, which may arise from all sides.
