First-person adventure game Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is gong to enter its beta state in a couple of weeks, The Chinese Room has revealed. Additionally, the studio plans to announce a release date for the PlayStation 4 exclusive “shortly.”
“Rapture is going to be really different, an apocalypse like no other, and we think it’s going to be good,” said the team’s co-director, Dan Pinchbeck.
Precise information is still unavailable but a new trailer released for the game gives us short hints about the storyline.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is set in the remote Yaughton Valley in June 1984. It follows the story of people who must live with each other after the world has ended. Choices are going to play an important role in the game with direct impact on how the story unfolds. It promotes exploration and interaction, which will draw players further into the world.
The Chinese Room has previously been behind Dear Esther and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, both which relished in good storytelling and rich environments.
Announced at Gamescom 2013, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is expected to release this summer exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
