The Forgotten City is a time travel murder mystery set in a mythological city.
Deep underground in an ancient Roman city, twenty-six trapped explorers lay dead because one of them broke a mysterious law. Within, a portal leads back into the past, allowing you to change their fate – or witness their deaths in a time loop for eternity.
Fortunately, hope remains. The Forgotten City offers incredible freedom, inviting players to manipulate the timeline, Groundhog Day-style, so events play out differently. By talking with diverse characters, making tough choices in moral dilemmas, and thinking laterally, you can unlock vastly different endings.
The Forgotten City is a re-imagining of the critically acclaimed mod, downloaded by more than 1.6 million gamers, and the first mod in history to win a national Writers' Guild award.
The Forgotten City retains all the elements you know and love while improving every aspect and adding plenty of surprises. Walk the streets of a brand new city. Get to know re-imagined characters. Sink into original lore with fresh twists and endings. Enjoy added combat and wall-climbing mechanics, an all-new orchestral score, professional voice acting, and motion capture animations.
This is a game about the human condition, for adults who enjoy figuring things out for themselves.
Today, we're announcing that The Forgotten City is coming to Xbox One, alongside the previously-announced PC release, in late 2019. We're also showing off a radical visual overhaul, thanks to our new environment artist, formerly of FromSoftware:
This re-imagining of the award-winning mod with more than 2 million downloads across PC and Xbox will take everything to the next level. The Forgotten City offers a gorgeous ancient Roman city to explore, rendered with Unreal Engine 4. The redesigned world is populated by new and fan-favorite characters, brought to life with professional voice acting and facial motion capture animations. New twists, endings and a glorious orchestral score complete the revitalized experience.
Something supernatural lurks in the underground ruins of an ancient Roman city. Amidst the crumbling architecture lies a portal leading an unsuspecting adventurer back in time to join 26 trapped explorers on their last day alive. Life in this mythological paradise may seem idyllic, but a set of strict laws must be followed by every citizen, for if any one of them breaks a single rule, all of their lives will be snuffed out by an unknown force which turns them to gold.
Cleverly exploit a time loop in the style of Russian Doll / Groundhog Day by interrogating diverse residents, gathering their secrets and putting together the pieces of a giant interpersonal puzzle. Staying one step ahead of fate, solve an ancient mystery to avert disaster and re-write history. The Forgotten City offers incredible freedom, rewarding only the savviest adventurers for making tough moral decisions and thinking laterally with the best of all possible endings.
The Forgotten City will be available in English. Localized subtitles and text will be available for German and other languages.
For those in the US who can't wait to play it, a demo will be available at PAX East in Boston from March 28-31 at booth 13121.
