The Chinese Room has released a brand new trailer on the PlayStation Blog for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture.
Within the blog post, Jessica Curry, co-director of the game, explained, “Rapture is set in a remote valley in June 1984 and is a story about people and how they live with each other. But it’s also about the end of the world.” She goes on and says, “Rapture also came from our obsession with post-apocalyptic gaming, and the simple idea that whilst we normally play as the hero, in reality, most of us would be the piles of ash and bone littering the game world. That’s an interesting place to start telling a story.”
While explaining how the game will play, Jessica writes, “The game is all about discovery. It’s open-world so you have the freedom to explore wherever you like, visiting areas in an order you define, and the story is written to allow this whilst making sure every player has a strong dramatic experience. It’s a type of storytelling that is completely unique to games. The choices you make as a player have a direct impact on how you understand the story – the more you explore and interact, the deeper you are drawn into Rapture’s world.”
Check out one of the songs they released that will be in the game below:
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a PlayStation 4 exclusive but does not currently have a release date.
This has been one of my most anticipated titles for over a year. Check out what I wrote about it last year. The new trailer, details, and song made me extremely excited! I hope we hear about it more in the coming months!
