Build A Rocket Boy has released the official reveal trailer for Everywhere and announced that it will kick off closed alpha testing for the game soon.
The Edinburgh-based studio, which is helmed by former Grand Theft Auto producer Leslie Benzies, premiered the first trailer for Everywhere during Gamescom Opening Night Live last August, when it also announced plans for a 2023 release.
With a release date yet to be confirmed, it appears likely that the game won’t arrive until next year at the earliest. However, Build a Rocket Boy said on Thursday that players can sign up for an account now to reserve their username and apply for the chance to be among the first to play it.
According to the studio, Everywhere “seamlessly blends gameplay, adventure, creativity, and discovery in an all-new multi-world gaming experience that redefines how players connect with one another and the digital world around them”.
The reveal trailer above offers a first look at gameplay footage and “shows the scale and variety of what is possible within Everywhere, where players can participate in almost infinite activities – or create their own”, it said.
Invitation-only closed alpha testing will begin “soon” on PC. Build A Rocket Boy said it plans to follow up this initial technical test with further testing programmes in the future.
“We believe in a future where game creation is put in the hands of players,” said Benzies. “With Everywhere, we aim to empower anyone to innovate, take risks and build their own worlds, shaped purely by their imagination.
“We are providing the tools, inspiration and infrastructure and are excited to see how our community will foster the next generation of developers to help grow the Everywhere story.”
