Remake of Skyrim Mod The Forgotten City Gains FromSoftware Artist, Coming to Xbox One

The Forgotten City

The Forgotten City, a standalone reimagining of the popular Skyrim mod of the same name, has received a significant visual overhaul thanks to the addition of a former FromSoftware environment artist.

Alongside announcing the new hire and revealing the new look (embedded below), developer Modern Storyteller revealed that The Forgotten City will launch on Xbox One in addition to the scheduled PC launch.

No specific release date is yet available, though Modern Storyteller predicts the game to launch late this year.

Modern Storyteller has left behind Bethesda’s Creation engine for this remake, building it in Unreal Engine 4. The developer is also expanding the game with a new soundtrack, endings, and a completely revamped environment.

The Forgotten City takes place in a lost Roman city and casts players as a character living a Groundhog Day-style existence in the effort to prevent the destruction of the society.

The project was first unveiled during PC Gamer’s E3 press conference last year. Meanwhile, the original mod released in 2015 and has reportedly been downloaded more than two million times.

The mod was highly acclaimed by the critical community, being the first mod to earn a national Writer’s Guild award.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
