The Forgotten City Hitting the Xbox One Sometime this Year (2019)
If you are looking for a game that might solve that itch for a murder mystery title, then this news is definitely for you. The Forgotten City, a time loop murder mystery from Modern Storyteller, is coming to the Xbox One, alongside the previously-announced PC release, in late 2019.
There is no doubt you may be wondering what to expect from this type of game on the Xbox One. The Forgotten City is said to offer a gorgeous ancient Roman city to explore, rendered with Unreal Engine 4. The redesigned metropolis 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.
In terms of the narrative, youll find that 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.
As you play youll need to cleverly exploit a time loop in the style of Russian Doll / Groundhog Day scenario 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.
Explore issues that challenge our conception of morality including moral relativism, extremism, collective punishment and the psychosocial effects of mass surveillance.
