Paradise Lost is what happens when World War II lasts 20 years longer than it should have and Nazi Germany launches missiles on most of Europe. If that premise interests you, this new game from Polish developer PolyAmorous should be placed on your digital wishlist ready for its PlayStation 4 release on 24th March 2021. The studio's website did originally mention a PS5 version of the title upon its announcement, but that appears to have been scrubbed for now. The PS4 edition is what we have to look forward to playing in two weeks time.
If you want to get a much better sense of how Paradise Lost actually plays, the 13-minute gameplay trailer embedded above should be your next destination. It details how you interact with the atmospheric environment and the sort of sights you'll come across. Action is on the fairly light side, meaning we reckon the game will play a lot like What Remains of Edith Finch or Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. That might be right up someone's alley.
You play as Szymon, a 12-year-old boy who’s just discovered a massive Nazi bunker while wandering the barren, nuclear wasteland of Poland after his mother’s death. He’s searching for an unknown man from a photograph his mother cherished. Who is he? Will you be able to find him?
