X: Exoriare

Smoking Gun first original IP, X: Exoriare (Latin for “Rise up”) was conceived as an ambitious, multi-platform AAA experience.

At its core, X:Exoriare was a squad based 3rd person action RPG with a rich story and universe.  The main innovation was in creating a truly connected experience that challenged the convention of how stories could be told through multiple forms of linked media, as well as in how players interact with their games off console.  Players could revel in a rich persistent world that followed them wherever they go through a pervasive content delivery system that includes websites, smart phones, character blogs, alternate reality games and graphic novels. 

We firmly believe that the future of gaming holds exciting promise, and we continue to pursue being able to deliver a product like X:Exoriare that can take games and storytelling in new directions.
