A re-imagining of the award-winning, critically acclaimed mod played by more than 1.6 million gamers, The Forgotten City will retain all the elements that made the original beloved while improving every aspect and adding plenty of surprises for gamers who enjoyed the mod.
The Forgotten City will feature a new city brought to life in Unreal Engine, redesigned characters and dialogue, original lore, fresh twists and endings, added combat and wall-climbing mechanics, an all-new orchestral score, professional voice acting and motion capture animations.
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 one person 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. Talking with diverse characters, making tough choices in moral dilemmas, and thinking laterally can unlock vastly different endings.
The Forgotten City was completely enthralling. I highly suggest headphones while playing, as the music and sound effects set the tone of the game and keep the player wanting to play more. Just playing the demo at PAX made me want more! The mystery of this Roman city deepens the game-play immensely. Going back in time, gaining knowledge along the way and figuring out how to save the city keeps the adventure interesting.
The Forgotten City will be coming to PC late 2019!
