Today, during the Day of the Devs livestream by The Game Awards, Good Shepherd Entertainment and Ace Team presented new gameplay of The Eternal Cylinder.
If you have followed our coverage of the game, you likely already know that this is going to be weird, in a good way.
Incidentally, the video provides a first look at ray tracing enabled in the game, which certainly makes it look even better.
Below you can enjoy the gameplay that was showcased during the event.
The Eternal Cylinder comes later this year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
A Trebhum for Everyone
In the Eternal Cylinder, players control a herd of adorable creatures called Trebhums and must explore a strange alien world filled with exotic lifeforms, surreal environments, and the constant threat of the Cylinder, a gargantuan rolling structure of ancient origin which crushes everything in its path.
Unforgettable Alien World to Explore
This unique ecosystem is a massive, procedurally generated land with unique animal AI, real-time world destruction, and organic exploration and puzzle design to create emergent gameplay that ensures no two playthroughs are ever the same.
Unique Mutation System
Discover and adapt dozens of mutations, including new traversal skills like flying and swimming to reach new areas, and new senses to help overcome puzzles, challenges and dangers. 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.
Players must explore a gorgeous procedurally generated world which is populated with unforgettable vistas and unique landscapes which have something new to discover around every corner.
The Savanna is a wild and beautiful region, noted for the diversity of its flora and fauna. Food and water are plentiful, and the land is rich with natural resources. But one should not mistake this beauty for safety; life in the Savannah is harsh, and dangers abound.
The world of The Eternal Cylinder is populated with more than 30 memorable, handcrafted alien creatures. Players must learn their unique behaviors and discover surprising ways to utilize the natural food chain to their advantage.
Players can unlock more than 50+ unique mutations as they explore the world. These include traversal options such as the ability to fly and swim, as well as new offensive tools like the ability to spit fire and create loud noises. Players can stack mutations creating an expansive, ever-evolving skill set.
