Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell has announced a release date for his stealth-game Volume, which is a futuristic retelling of the Robin Hood story.

Andy Serkis, or Gollum as he’s known to fans of a certain trilogy of films, stars in the game as Guy Gisborne, a villainous CEO who rules over a future version of London.

Players take on the role of Rob Locksley, who is a “kid who simulates crimes against the rich and powerful and broadcasts them to a corrupted future England.”

Charlie McDonnell will lend his voice to Locksley and Thomas Was Alone narrator Danny Wallace will play his AI companion, Alan.

The game will launch on PlayStation 4, Vita and Steam on August 18.
