You may think that Broken Pieces is a big standard psychological thriller. But this one doesn’t just throw a ton of supernatural terrors your way, it takes you outside of the flow of time itself. WHAAAT!?
From the development team at Elsewhere Experience and their publishing friends found at Freedom Games HQ is Broken Pieces.
Releasing right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5, Broken Pieces whisks you off to the scenic lands of Saint-Exil, a small French costal town that is home to Elise and Pierre; her fiancé. The thing is, Saint-Exil isn’t exactly the home they were originally imagining.
Priced at £20.99, should you fall into the world of Broken Pieces you’ll begin to take in a sinister little tale, one that focuses on the disappearance of folk and the dark history of the once picturesque little village. But as with everything, there’s some real weirdness to how Broken Pieces plays out, mostly as Elise comes with a supernatural ability – one that lets her control the weather.
A game full of isolation and solitude, the interest and intrigue that this tale unfolds should be more than enough to drag you in. And if it isn’t, we’d suspect that the host of collectibles and the workings of a cryptic cult will instead.
“After the amazing response on PC earlier this year, we were so thankful console players were willing to wait a bit longer to ensure their versions were just as high-quality,” said Mael Vignaux, Project Lead of Elseware Experience. “Ironically enough, our game about solitude has connected people from all over the world into one large community, which in itself has us reanalyzing our design ethos for future projects. You have all inspired us, thank you, and Happy Halloween!”
If you’ve played Broken Pieces on PC through Steam, then you should know what to expect as it releases on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5. If you haven’t, we’d suggest you will want to head straight to your favoured digital store – the Xbox Store being ours – and picking up a download.
Our full review is coming very soon.
