A new trailer for upcoming adventure game The Descendant has arrived today, but you may be just as puzzled about what to expect even after you’ve watched it. Dubbed the ‘Time Shift’ trailer, it’s perhaps more appropriate to label this as another teaser for the game than it is to call it a trailer.
But, nuances of pre-release videos aside, what is for sure is that this new footage does a great job of painting a tense, exciting picture for the story-driven title. The time shift is clear in the video, and it reveals that there’s clearly something – or more likely many things – amiss in The Descendant.
Not much is given away in this trailer, but we do already know a little about the game’s premise from previous information releases. The Descendant is set in a time where climate change has wrecked the planet and a man-made extinction event has wiped humankind off the face of the Earth. Only a few thousand ‘descendants of humanity’ were hand-picked to survive the apocalypse and they were cryogenically suspended in underground bunkers known as Arks. Centuries passed and the world recovered, but when all the Arks reopened one remained closed — Ark-01.
The Descendant will have you unraveling the mysteries of Ark-01 across two time periods when the game releases through Steam on March 24.
