Welcome to Deceive Inc. – the multiplayer PvP game that’s all about cheating and subterfuge. The teams at Sweet Bandits and Tripwire Presents have been hard at work perfecting this game for release. We’re all very excited for the coming weeks, and now we want to share that anticipation with you!
Über Deceive Inc.
Deceive Inc. is a multiplayer hero shooter that’s all about social stealth and subterfuge. 12 players (either alone or in teams of 3) take on the role of agents and must successfully extract a target.
Each agent spawns in secret, disguised as one of the many NPCs populating the map. Armed with their unique weapons and abilities – and some high-tech spy gadgets – they must use their spying skills to track down other players, escape detection, gather intel, buy upgrades, and ultimately find and extract the valuable cargo.
Deceive Inc. global launch is March 7, 2023
Deceive Inc. is coming to PlayStation 5 on March 7th this year. We’re also hosting an Open Beta with full crossplay support from February 24th to 27th – free for all players who want to try the game.

A hardened veteran

Starting weapon: Zhulong automatic crossbow
Archetype: Scoundrel (Villain)
