Following on from yesterday’s release date announcement during Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Fullbright has released a full-length trailer for the upcoming space station-set walking simulator, Tacoma.
While the trailer touches on the mystery that will drive the game, that being the question of what has gone wrong on the station, the footage is more interested in showing off the daily lives and reactions of those caught on board when disaster struck.
Set to the breezy tune of Szjerdene’s ‘Find Me’, the trailer is a relatively low-key affair that does a fine job of blending the sci-fi sterility of the Tacoma with the human concerns of its inhabitants:
Players will take the role of Amy Ferrier and are tasked with retrieving the Tacoma’s AI program ODIN by the Venturis Corporation. The game is set in the year 2088, with the technologies on display representative of the leap from the present day.
Tacoma has been subject to numerous setbacks and delays since Fullbright first unveiled the title back in 2014. As announced yesterday, the game will be available on Xbox One and PC from August 2, 2017. More details on the project are available in OnlySP’s Most Anticipated preview of Tacoma from earlier this year.
