The Descendant Episode 1 Launch Trailer Offers Look at Telltale Style Gameplay

The first episode of The Descendant, “Aftermath,” is slated to hit PCs on March 24th, so a gameplay launch trailer has been released to show off what’s in store for those gamers who are eager to travel down its rabbit hole.

The trailer focuses heavily on gameplay, which is very Telltale-ish in nature, meaning that players will be treated to a plethora of QTEs and gameplay-lite moments in favor of a stronger focus on story telling. Visually the game looks pretty great, featuring a somewhat cel shaded aesthetic. The sci-fi setting seems pretty interesting too.

You can watch the launch trailer above. You can learn more about the broad scope of the game below.
