Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

The Chinese Room shared a new trailer for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, its upcoming PlayStation 4 story-driven adventure game, at E3.

Rapture is set in the remote valley of Yaughton in June 1984, an follows a story about people and how they live with each other, but also about the end of the world. The world itself is described as its own character, rather than just a backdrop.

“Rapture also came from our obsession with post-apocalyptic gaming, and the simple idea that whilst we normally play as the hero, in reality, most of us would be the piles of ash and bone littering the game world,” co-director Jessica Curry said on the PlayStation Blog. “That’s an interesting place to start telling a story.”

It’s a game all about discovery, where you can explore wherever you like, visiting places in the order you’d like, and making sure every player has a “strong dramatic” story experience.

Music and audio will play a fundamental role in achieving this, Curry, who is also the composer, said. Over at the PlayStation Blog, you can hear one of the tracks from the game.
