Live-action, full motion video gaming is nothing new, but it has only really been in the last few years where we’ve seen a bit of an explosion in terms of the FMV genre. Much of that has been down to the brilliance of Wales Interactive. Following on from their previous titles like Late Shift, The Bunker and Simulacra, comes The Complex – yet another FMV, yet one that this time around deals with the aftermath of a major bio-weapons attack on London.
The Complex is available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC, running at a price of £9.99 should you be looking to grab your download from the Xbox Store.
Our full review of The Complex is fast approaching and may well even be with you by the time you are reading this, but basically you just need to know that once more the FMV kings of Wales Interactive are delivering the goods, throwing us into a sci-fi tale that is not just thrilling, but utterly enthralling. Set in London and filmed entirely in the UK, The Complex provides the opportunity for you to work your way through to 1 of 8 different endings, as you play with decisions, work with consequence, and kickback as the situations unfolds.
Edit: Our full review of The Complex on Xbox One is now live. Hit it up.
With acting performances from some of the very best in the business – Michelle Mylett (Letterkenny, Bad Blood) and Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch) and even a guest acting performance by Xbox playing livestreamer and presenter, Leah Viathan – and a tale created by an Emmy-award winning team, The Complex looks set to provide an awesome FMV experience.

If you’re a fan of what Wales Interactive have provided in the past or are just looking for something to relax with during these long nights then picking up a copy of The Complex is sure to sort you out. We advise you moving over to the Xbox Store and paying up the required £9.99 asking price. If you’re one of those who prefer to run the PlayStation, Nintendo or PC routes though then you’ll know the best course of action.
Further to that, you’ll also find The Complex bundled up with some of Wales Interactive’s other work. The Interactive Movie Bundle costs £17.99 and places it in the same download as Late Shift. The Ultimate FMV Bundle meanwhile is considerably more at £44.99, but will allow access to not just this new entry, but also Late Shift, The Bunker, The Shapeshifting Detective and The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker in one bundle.
