The Eternal Cylinder to bring open-world survival adventuring to console and PC in 2020

New open world survival adventure anyone? The Eternal Cylinder is coming to console and PC in 2020.

We’re always wary when we hear the words ‘console and PC’ as the refusal to nail any masts to the Xbox One, PS4 or Nintendo Switch colours is one of worry. But in 2020 when new consoles are on the horizon, those worries diminish, and for that reason alone we’ll let Good Shepherd Entertainment and ACE Team off for running the console route, especially as The Eternal Cylinder looks so damn good.

Due to launch in 2020 on console and exclusively via the Epic Games Store at launch, The Eternal Cylinder will give us the chance to explore, evolve and then escape from a hot and fiery rolling extinction as the development and publishing teams take on a hugely ambitious open world survival adventure.

In The Eternal Cylinder, we’ll be tasked with herding a group of the most adorable little creatures – the Trebhums – as we explore a strange alien world that is filled with exotic lifeforms and surreal environments. It is also at constant threat of the Cylinder, a gargantuan rolling structure of ancient origin which crushes everything in its path. Fun eh!?

This all plays out with your Trebhums beginning at the bottom of the natural food chain, but they can mutate and evolve with new physical attributes and abilities by eating a wide variety of flora and fauna. The Eternal Cylinder will allow you to discover and adapt dozens of mutations, including new traversal skills like flying and swimming in order to reach new areas. Further still will be new senses available and these will help you overcome puzzles, challenges and dangers. Thankfully your many Trebhums can each have different mutations, and new mutations don’t replace ones you already have, letting you stack ability sets in dynamic ways. And as you may expect to hear, each mutation will also change the physical look of a Trebhum, so stacking these will generate near countless new creature designs.

Promising to deliver a unique ecosystem within a massive, procedurally generated land with unique animal AI, real-time world destruction, and organic exploration and puzzle design, The Eternal Cylinder aims to create emergent gameplay that ensures no two playthroughs are ever the same.

Interested? Us too, but for now you should be spending time watching that trailer below. And then waiting for the Trebhums to fall into our lives.

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.
