INDIANA JONES AND THE GREAT CIRCLE Latest gameplay footage Channels the tone of the movies perfectly

During the Xbox Game Showcase earlier this month, Bethesda and developer MachineGames debuted some extended footage of Indiana Jones and the Great Circle.

Announced in January 2021, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is an original story starring the famous archaeologist, set among his events Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Drawing heavily from the film series, the globe-trotting adventure follows Indiana Jones as he tries to fend off sinister forces searching the world for the secret of an ancient power connected to the Great Circle.

“From the hallowed halls of the Vatican and the sunken temples of Sukhothai to the pyramids of Egypt and the snowy peaks of the Himalayas, Indy’s latest journey will send him across the globe in a race against time as he hunts down mysterious and powerful objects . ” Bethesda explains, laying the groundwork for the new material. “But Indiana isn’t the only one on the trail of these artifacts. Working with Gina, Indy will face Voss and his men in the hunt for the secrets of these relics.”

Following an intercepted message, Indiana and Gina locate one of the artifact sites deep in the Himalayas of Nepal. After a treacherous journey through the mountains, the two arrive at an icy battleship hidden in the peaks.

Of course – and this should be familiar to anyone who has watched the Indiana Jones movies – Indy and Gina are greeted by a group of Nazi soldiers, led by a man named Gantz. From the gorgeous sets to the incredible voice acting to the perfectly tuned score to the actual sequence of events, the unfolding cinematic narrative feels like watching one of the classic films. And for those wondering, the voice you hear for Indiana Jones is none other than Troy Baker, the same voice behind Joel in The last of us privilege.

“Working with Indiana Jones makes you want to experience the wide range of set pieces that made you go ‘Wow!’ as a kid”, said Game Director Jerk Gustafsson. “We all remember the thrill of seeing Indy’s daring and often narrow escapes, and we want to have those moments at the Great Circle as well.”

Game inside Indiana Jones and the Great Circle played primarily in first-person perspective with players using Indy’s trademark to distract, disarm, and attack enemies. The whip is also used to navigate the environment, such as hovering over unsuspecting patrols and scaling walls. The gameplay is generally said to be a combination of stealth, melee, and gunplay. We’ve gotten a taste of all this and more in the previously released trailers.

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is currently in development with a release window set for this year. Coming to Xbox Series X|S and PC. It will be available for free to play on day one through Game Pass.
