A New Release Window Is Set For The Forgotten City

The Forgotten City

The Forgotten City is now set to release this summer and it looks like The Forgotten City will also be hitting some new platforms too

It feels like that time loop in The Forgotten City is going on in the real world at this point, with the game now getting a Summer release out there for us all. Those keeping a close eye on what Modern Storyteller was setting up would know that the original plan was to drop the game in the Winter of 2020. That has well come and gone with no one out there having the chance and time to play The Forgotten City now. Well, outside of the developers and those working close to the game. Now it looks like we could see the game out there in a few months so we can try to solve the issue of the "Golden Rule" in the game's world. Although, at this point, it would have been nice to have a month to look for at the very least.

There is not much of a reason given for the longer wait we have for The Forgotten City, but I have a feeling it might be due to the next update we have for the game. Originally it was listed as only hitting the PC and Xbox One when it drops. As of now, we will be able to see the game hit the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch when it launches now. There is almost no one out there who will not have the opportunity to pick up The Forgotten City when it does finally launch. A nice little extra and good reason to have a bit of a delay to it all. If you can call a six-month delay a little one. Nonetheless, we will see it all out there this Summer. Unless they choose to delay it all one more time and reset us on a different timeline out there.

The Forgotten City — Release Window

Working in partnership with publisher Dear Villagers, indie studio Modern Storyteller released a new cinematic trailer for their debut title The Forgotten City.

The Forgotten City was also announced for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X today, and will also be available in the previously announced PC and Xbox One versions.

The game is an ambitious full-scale reimagining of the award-winning mod of the same name which has been downloaded no less than 3 million times.

Trapped in a secret underground city in the time of the Roman Empire, twenty-three lost souls cling to life. In this precarious utopia, if one person breaks the mysterious Golden Rule, everyone dies. As a time-traveler drawn two thousand years into the past, you’ll relive their final moments in an endless loop, exploring and interrogating, and changing the course of the day with each secret you uncover.

Key Features

  • Explore an authentic, open-world ancient Roman city brought to life with Unreal Engine.
  • Become entwined in the lives of richly detailed, deeply interactive characters.
  • Grapple with moral dilemmas which have life-and-death consequences.
