Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, the upcoming adventure from The Chinese Room, has gotten a new 17 minute gameplay trailer from PlayStation Underground‘s Ryan Clements and Tom Tuner. Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, as can be seen by the trailer below looks quite frankly, incredible. If you don’t want to sit through almost 17 minutes of gameplay, you can just look at some of the games screenshots below.
Describing the game, the PlayStation website states:
“Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture tells the story of the inhabitants of a remote English valley who are caught up in world-shattering events beyond their control or understanding. Made by The Chinese Room – the studio responsible for the hauntingly beautiful Dear Esther – this tale of how people respond in the face of grave adversity is a non-linear, open-world experience that pushes innovative interactive storytelling to the next level.”
The description also continues by saying:
“Over the course of the game, the player slowly pieces together the fate of the valley from the fragmentary memories of the people who made it their home. By finding and interacting with the traces of these lost lives, the player gradually learns about the stories and relationships of the inhabitants – how they lived, and how they died. All this is accomplished through revolutionary environmental storytelling – what you see and hear in Rapture is just as important as what you do.”
Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture currently doesn’t have a specific release date, although PlayStation Creative Director Dan Pinchbeck has said that the game will be released sometime this summer, as The Chinese Room is currently finalizing some of the games content. Judging by the work the developers have put into the game so far, it’s hard to see what exactly is left to work on. The game is currently set to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
