Few games have a synopsis as intriguing as Eternal Threads‘.
Described as a “first-person, non-linear narrative adventure about time manipulation”, Eternal Threads from Secret Mode and Cosmonaut Studios casts you as an operative sent from the future. Your job? To change the events over the course of a week that led to six people dying in a house fire. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, then make sure this is on your radar when it releases on 19th May.
Over the course of your mission, you’ll be able to visit hundreds of points in time over that week, watching key events play out in the house and then attempting to change them where necessary. Get everything just right, and hopefully you can completely change the course of history, saving each of the six people.
Each of the six people – all residents in a house share – has their own story, which you’ll learn as you parse through the various events in time. Will you be able to save them? Will you uncover their secrets? It’s up to you.
We’re thoroughly intrigued by the idea of Eternal Threads, and the concept of being able to jump into any point in time sounds fascinating. We won’t have to wait too long to play it, either, as it’s coming to PlayStation, Xbox and PC on 19th May. A Nintendo Switch release is also scheduled for later in the year.
Be sure to check back in with us next week, as we’ll have impressions from the game to share. Until then, give the trailer a watch for a taste of what to expect.
