The apocalypse has arrived. After two and a half years, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is out in just about a week, and to celebrate, we want to share the launch trailer for the game with you.
Mere weeks — all that’s left before finding out how the world ended on June 6th, 1984.
We definitely share The Chinese Room’s excitement and anticipation in revealing what exactly befell quiet Yaughton Valley.
The end of the world is nearly upon us. Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture now has a release date of August 11th and the team is working exceptionally hard on the final few touches to ensure that the game is as perfect as it can be. As you read this I’m in L.A. with our brilliant sound designer Adam Hay and the wonderful Sony sound and music team doing the final mix of the game. I can’t believe that this time has finally come- it’s scary and exciting in equal measures because it means that there are no more changes: no more “can we just try”, no “how about if we”, no “I think we should” – just the knowledge that for better or worse, this is how the game will sound on release. *sobs into gin-soaked pillow*
The world ended 31 years ago. That’s the premise of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, and we’re delighted to be able to announce the game’s launch date – August 11th, 2015.
To celebrate this, we’ve launched this dedicated website for the game, which will feature exclusive content – images, music and writing created just for the site. We want to set the scene for this game, introduce you to characters and themes of the story, get you exclusive previews of the game’s soundtrack and fill you in on some more of the work that’s gone on to create the title.
Welcome back to PlayStation Underground, our online show about video games! Today, we go underground with Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, a poignant exploration of the apocalypse, and a snapshot of 1980’s England. For those looking for an emotional, story-driven experience, look no further than this upcoming PS4 project.
We’re a couple of weeks out from Beta for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture on PS4, which is incredibly exciting and quite scary in equal measure. There’s always a point in every game development where you start counting down the days and hours, and everything gears itself around the question of “right, we’re shipping this thing, are we ready?”
For the last twelve months, we’ve had our heads down working hard on Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture and it’s really exciting to be able to share some more information with you as well as a new trailer
