Shropshire's never looked quite so stunning as it does in Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. Well, to be honest, we've only ever driven through the western county, so we couldn't tell you for sure, but we do know that The Chinese Room's latest adventure looks absolutely extraordinary. Its packing CryEngine technology, and looks like it's pushing the PlayStation 4 to its limits.
This latest trailer – launched to coincide with the game nearing beta – is more of a mood piece, as it shows off an abandoned village hall, empty after the end of the world. The full release will see you exploring the deserted 80s settlement, where you'll piece together the plots of six different characters, each of which remain as phantoms in the sunny setting.
Clearly this is not going to appeal to everyone, but the idyllic location paired with the intriguing premise has definitely piqued our interest. Are you looking forward to traipsing through rural England after the rapture? Soak up the sights in the comments section below.
The video didn't really tell much, but I would like to say that it is great to see someone in the video game world actually believes in the concept of a rapture taking place.
please Do not advertise in the comment section thanks as per the community rules. Thanks -Tasuki
this looks awesome . real creepy , reminds me of the old "protect and survive" public information films (even down to the logo at the end)
Meh, just makes me want to play myst.
@OldSchoolHeel Yeah it just doesn't seem like it's for me, it wouldn't be quite right to call this pretentious but it's close to that.
Yes let's all praise the invisible sky wizard!
Please let everyone believe what they want without bashing..
@PFC_Hudson sorry you feel that way. I will pray for you. For I understand what it is like to be so foolish, I was once there myself. I hope Jesus will soften your heart before His promised return. I would hate to see you go to hell
@PFC_Hudson i didnt even call you a nazi...
@Sanquine You've included a picture of Adolf Hitler, leader of the Nazis. Exactly what else am I supposed to think you're inferring
Maybe if you got down from your ivory tower you'd realise how offensive you're being
I have no problem with people having faith as long as they keep it to themselves and don't try to involve or convert me
PastorDaniel made his post as a spoof so I went along with that in my first post
If he was however deadly serious then this is completely the wrong place to do it and he deserves backlash for it
@PFC_Hudson That's enough. If you want to preach religion we ask you to take it elswhere. Also it appears that you joined the site just to argue so I am afraid you will have to go elsewhere.
Now let's get back on track.
@Tasuki Funny fact based on the comments above and the game being based in Shropshire.
Charles Darwin is Shropshire's most famous son, the theorist behind the theory of evolution.
I wish there were more games with ideas like this
Anything apocalyptic for me. Sold
Would be nice on Morpheus
@Sanquine Thor will smite you!
@ryanorly the style is more than reasonable and I love the idea and the vagueness of everything that encourages exploration, I wish games weren't always so obvious/blatant and straight forward, and no I'm not hoping for more generic puzzlers, this game is definitely going split opinions in an extreme way I think
Are we talking rapture in the biblical sense?
Sweet - Just a shame the main character appears to of got left behind.
(Will watch the video later - can't right now)
I saw a much longer walkthrough video; a tour through a village. The game looks fascinating. Of course use of the term 'rapture' is, I suspect, deliberately intended to invoke a spectrum of emotions and notions. And if I recall, it's not the first time 'Rapture' has been used in a gaming context.
