Coming from the team behind Arise: A Simple Story is After Us, a gloriously riveting exploration adventure that is set for launch in 2023. 

It’ll be Spring 2023 when Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC (Steam) players get the opportunity to take in After Us, as Private Division and Piccolo Studio allow the opportunity for gamers to take in a surrealistic, post-human world, hoping to give Earth life a second chance. 

Having you playing as Gaia, the Spirit of Life, you’ll be looking to bring hope to a broken planet in a surrealistic, post-human journey. Traverse stunning environments to save the souls of extinct animals and harness Gaia’s powers to fight the dangers that plague an inhospitable Earth.

After Us features Piccolo Studio’s signature style of delivering impactful storytelling and combines it with compelling exploration and adventure. Gaia must jump, glide, dash, wallride, and swim to evade deadly obstacles and enemies. And as the embodiment of life, she has the power to help restore and reconstitute the planet, done by emitting bursts of light, as Gaia sparks new plant growth revealing new paths for traversal.

“After Us is a game about legacy and hope,” said Alexis Corominas, Game Director at Piccolo Studio. “We set out to craft a powerful game experience that blends poignant narrative with creative game design and unique mechanics. We look forward to seeing everyone’s reactions to the game when it releases next Spring.”

After Us prominently displays a fantastic world wrought by the destructive actions of an unbridled society, experienced by the player across ten different biomes. Players learn the final fates of various majestic creatures, such as the last whale harpooned, the final eagle caged, or the last deer hunted down, before resurrecting their spirits to return life to the world. Each new environment presents new challenges for Gaia and tells the stories of these animal’s final moments before their climactic moment of rebirth.

“A core pillar of Private Division is empowering studios to achieve their creative vision, and it’s exciting to see Piccolo Studio build upon their previous success with Arise, in this new and ambitious game,” said Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer, Take-Two Interactive, and Head of Private Division. “After Us beautifully blends an artistic, abstract world, thrilling gameplay, and a powerful, universal narrative into an unforgettable experience that we are proud to publish from Private Division.”

There’s a trailer below for you to watch. From there, hold tight until After Us launches on Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC through Steam.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
