Xbox Game Studios has announced a new first-party title called Clockwork Revolution.
The “time-bending steampunk first-person RPG” is in development at InXile Entertainment.
The game is “coming in due time,” according to its debut trailer, which is viewable below.
“The project is led by game director Chad Moore and principal designer Jason Anderson, who just happen to have created one of the greatest steampunk RPGs of all time—Arcanum,” InXile studio head Brian Fargo told Xbox Wire.
“Clockwork Revolution takes place in the vibrant Victorian-era metropolis of Avalon, where steam trains fly overhead, wealthy industrialists replace their limbs with ornate clockwork prosthetics, and mechanical servants fulfill their masters’ every whim.
“But this new age of wonders holds a dark secret—it’s been carefully constructed by the ruthless Lady Ironwood. Through use of a time travel device, she’s changed key moments in Avalon’s history, keeping the working class struggling in the slums and factories, while bringing herself immense wealth and power. That’s where you come in…
“Discovering Ironwood’s scheme, you’ll use a wondrous device known as the Chronometer to travel back in time, choose how to influence the past, and then return to the present to experience the effects of your decisions.
“Through unprecedented and complex visual and narrative depth, the choices you make on your trips into the past will change the people, the stories, and the city of Avalon itself in extraordinary and (very often) unexpected ways.
“In Clockwork Revolution we’re pushing roleplaying reactivity to new heights, infused with the unique texture and personality that you’ve come to expect from our games.”
