The Forgotten City Announces Major Overhaul, Release Delayed (VIDEO)
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim manages to be one of the most popular moddable games on the market the RPG used as the basis for quite a few notable projects. One of these adventures titled The Forgotten City has managed to be one of the most successful of the bunch, the impressive mod confirmed to be getting its own standalone outing at the PC Gaming Show earlier this year. However, as we reach the end of the year, the game has appeared poised to miss its touted 2019 release window–suggesting a delay is likely in order.
Announced in a recent update video, The Forgotten City will indeed experience a delay, the game’s release now set to arrive in Winter 2020. Developer Modern Storyteller explains such a significant delay was attributed to a newly-struck deal with Bury Me, My Love publisher Dear Villagers, the expanded support now allowing the project to become a more fully-realized experience. “We’re now able to give the game more time in development and expand the team so that absolutely everything about the game is leveled up,” said Modern Storyteller’s Nick Pearce.
While it means nearly a year’s wait before we’ll see The Forgotten City release, the project now flaunts some undeniably exciting possibilities with the addition of extended publisher backing. “We’re incredibly grateful for your support ever since we announced the game over a year ago,” the studio revealed on Steam. “We’ll have much more to say (and show!) in the coming months.” In addition to the game’s complete overhaul, Modern Storyteller also showed a peek at the studio’s expanded efforts in a new teaser trailer, which can be viewed below alongside an official description.
Trapped in a precarious utopia where if one person sins, everyone dies, 26 ancient Romans cling to life. Drawn 2,000 years into the past, you’ll relive their final day in an endless loop, changing its course with each secret you uncover, and decision you make. The fate of the city is in your hands.”
