A new mystery looms in haunted Castle Rock – that’s right, we’ve got a brand new game to announce! We’re excited to bring you a new entry in our co-op puzzle adventure series: We Were Here Forever. As Antarctic explorers trapped in a spooky castle, you and a friend will have to work together to solve puzzles and try to find a way to escape.
Since the release of We Were Here Together, we’ve been working on our new game. We Were Here Forever will be the fourth standalone entry in the series, with the goal of bringing the world of Castle Rock to life like never before. At the same time, we’ve made up some awesome new puzzles, written the next part of the story, and we’re preparing to provide you with an experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. On top of that, it has been great to harness the power of the PlayStation 5 to create stunning environments for you to explore. After two years of development, we are delighted to present this announcement trailer to you.
Don’t worry if you’ve never played a We Were Here game before, as we’ll make sure you can dive right in, but if you have, you’ll find that the explorers you’re playing this time around look like you are terribly familiar. Have you ever wondered what happened to those left behind … or that scary harlequin, the jester?
We Were Here Forever will tell you a story of Castle Rock’s past and future. The scene is set – you and a friend are trapped in the dead end Castle Rock kingdom – have you been betrayed, or just not that clever? Be aware, nothing is what it seems – there seems to be a mystery buried deep within the dungeon. Locked up with just a pair of walkie-talkies and your wits, can you escape the castle… forever ?!
Of course, We Were Here Forever is all about having fun with your co-op buddy, solving puzzles together, and talking over walkie-talkies like you’d expect. We can’t wait to see what you all think of the new areas and puzzles. One of our favorite things is watching streamers play our games, and seeing how differently people experience the world we have created is also very inspiring. We design our games to evoke a range of emotions in gamers, from laughter and excitement to the satisfaction of solving puzzles… there will be epic reveals this time around! But no spoilers for the moment …
In Forever, you will notice that the puzzles are even more engaging, more dynamic, and will challenge you in a number of ways. Some areas can even defy logic and challenge you physically when you still need to stay mentally strong to survive. You will now find useful equipment to help you escape – for example, you can carry a torch, which means you will have to consider where to light up.
We really wanted players to be in control of their own adventure in the Kingdom of Castle Rock. That’s why we’ve designed a partially non-linear storyline, so you can decide the order of events and explore the Kingdom of Castle Rock at your leisure. Maybe even come back another time and do it differently … More will be revealed at a later date.
Release is slated for later this year, and we’ll have more to share as the launch date approaches. Until then, we’ve just released our three previous We Were Here games on PlayStation – you can already pick up the rest of the games and start your adventure in Castle Rock. Each entry in the We Were Here series is a standalone experience, so you can enjoy the games in any order. However, if you are invested in the history of Castle Rock, we recommend playing Forever after the others. Remember to communicate well, be attentive and keep your cool – if you can … over and over again.
