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.
We recently announced the cast list for the game — an amazing group of some of the best TV, film, and radio actors working in games in the UK. We’re delighted that the list is headed up by the fantastic Merle Dandridge, best known for her role as Alyx Vance in Half Life 2 and Marlene in The Last of Us. You might recognise her from the trailer, where she plays Dr. Katherine Collins, the brilliant astrophysicist at the heart of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture’s mystery.
If the trailer isn’t enough, and you can’t wait a week to get more of the game, then head over to the official site. For the last few weeks, we’ve been uploading exclusive content over there — radio interviews with Kate and her research assistant and husband, Dr. Stephen Appleton; excerpts from journals and textbooks; emergency leaflets to help orientate you to the apocalypse. There’s interviews with the team, more information about the production, and a series of secret codes to unravel — all of which will help you understand the mystery of Yaughton Valley just that little bit more.
Finally, we know that lots of you outside the US have been checking out the awesome dynamic theme that’s been available on the US store. We’re happy to let you know that PS+ customers across the world will also be able to grab this when they purchase the game.
We’re hugely excited about the game coming out — really hope you all love playing it as much as we’ve enjoyed making it. It’s been an incredible couple of years and we’re very proud of the result.
Keep on checking the game’s website and expect a couple more very cool exclusive features to hit between now and the end of the world. And remember — an emergency may occur at any time, without any warning, so be prepared. Keep your radios and televisions on at all times!
