The spiritual successor to Dear Esther, in Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, has been biding its time in the shadows after being revealed during gamescom last year. Now it appears as though the co-developed project between The Chinese Room and Sony Santa Monica studios has re-emerged in trailer form, acting as a showcase for the brilliant level of visual fidelity shown in the upcoming adventure game.
While the trailer doesn’t explain exactly why Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, it does capture the haunting beauty of a forgotten countryside, while highlighting the improved CryEngine graphics that the PS4 can afford to provide. It doesn’t go much into detail about the crux of the open-world adventure story, but it does tease some sort of orange spectral being traversing through the high grass. It is the very definition of a teaser trailer, giving a brief glimpse into the quiet apocalypse just beginning to unfold.
Not much is known about Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, but we do know it’s on track to be released exclusively on the PS4 sometime next year. Perhaps its mysterious origins will help maintain its allure when it finally releases.
