Everybody's Gone to the Rapture: Plot and Screens Update

There’ve been a few things to catch up on with The Chinese Room’s latest title Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. The Sony Santa Monica backed PS4 exclusive is not expected to follow the typical post-apocalyptic formula and a recent plot reveal proves the notion correct.

For those of you that don’t know anything about Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, watch the announcement trailer before going further.

Now that you’ve finished or have been following the game, you’ll want to know more about this enticing title, won’t you?

–Potential Spoilers Follow–

The scene is set in Shropshire, England during June 1984 –a June where mankind no longer exists. The story, which drives the game, begins when man has ended their worldly reign, and unfolds in The Chinese Room’s signature way; open world exploration.

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture feats six main characters, each with their own story lines, tied to respective and evolving landmarks, and influencing events throughout the game. Rapture will also not abide to the original 60-minutes time limit originally planned per playthrough.

–Potential Spoilers End–

Screenshots have been released of the intriguing game, you can check them out below. Note the beautifully eerie tranquility that each screen is filled with.

You’ll have to wait to play The Chinese Room’s newest creation as Dan Pinchbeck said, “Rapture actually wasn’t ever slated for a 2014 release –we’re still very early in development. So we can confirm it’s not going to be out this year. As soon as we do have a launch window, we’ll let you know.”
