Total Mayhem Games revealed today that the next installment in the We Were Here series will be out on October 10th. This new game will build upon its predecessors’ gameplay, and according to the developers, it’s going to be the largest title in the series so far.
Embark on a puzzle solving adventure in which you and a partner must prove you can communicate and work together to escape the haunted Castle Rock.
It all begins with an emergency flare lighting up the sky and a distress call waking you from uneasy dreams. Your fellow Antarctic explorers are in trouble, and the two of you left at base camp must work together to launch a rescue mission. If only you knew what you were getting into…
From the research base camp you’ll need to figure out a way to get to the source of the distress flare. Once you’re through the frozen Antarctic wastes, you’ll find yourselves separated inside a medieval castle, facing puzzles, secrets, and dangers! You and your partner start out with nothing but your wits and a walkie-talkie each. Observation, smart communication and teamwork will be the only way to escape from the sinister Castle Rock.
For returning fans of the We Were Here series, this time you can expect even more puzzles, longer play time, new mechanics, and discover more of the story behind the Antarctic expedition and Castle Rock itself…
Bad news for VR owners, I’m afraid, since the store page makes no mention of Virtual Reality support, continuing the trend seemingly set by We Were Here Too, which dropped one of the features that made the original game stand out.
