Many of you experience a very British apocalypse every day, when you hop on the London underground at 7AM in order to get to work. Of course, that's not the kind of rapture that Brighton-based developer The Chinese Room had in mind for its PlayStation 4 exclusive Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, which – excitingly – is now little more than a week away.
In this behind-the-scenes trailer, the developer discusses exactly how its apocalypse ticks, and explains that its isolated eighties Shropshire setting is an important part of that. The music's simply gorgeous, and the studio's certainly appealing to this author's sensibilities with its emphasis on atmosphere and narrative. We can't wait.
Any news on price? (UK)
@Neolit that is the gameplay is it not
I'm definitely interested but this game is going to split people's opinions, some will love it and others will absolutely hate it (and won't be afraid to let everyone know ) if there last two games are anything to go by.
Will give it a shot if the price is right. Looks gorgeous regardless.
@Neolit see what you mean, I reckon it will be pretty floaty, if not then I guess we'll be hearing footsteps
Looks like a PS3 launch title to me. I had high hopes, but this trailer has diminished them quite a bit. Hopefully actual gameplay footage will bring me back.
@Pipr According to the PS Blog it will be it'll be $20 regularly, but PS+ members will be able to pre order it for $15 during the first two weeks of release here in America. But in Europe you guys will be able to get it with the PS+ price for the first two weeks after release. I'm not sure what those price points work out to after conversion though. :/
@adf86 As far as the Chinese Room is concerned, I really wasn't a fan of A Machine for Pigs. I really enjoyed the story, but the horror element was pitiful in comparison to The Dark Decent. Though seeing as this game isn't horror, I feel a bit better about it. The Chinese Room is a talented studio IMO, the just don't do horror very well.
I think I'd be willing to pay around £12 for this (which is about $16). Looks a bit like Ether One which I really enjoyed (even with its bugs).
@Pipr Yeah, the $15 price would be perfect. As much as I loved The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, I couldn't help but feeling a bit ripped off after paying $20 for it. And that's exactly what I want to avoid with EGR. I found Ether One to be quite interesting as well, but I just never ended up playing it again after my first session. I suppose my atrocious backlog is partially to blame for that though. ;3
