'We Were Here Together' Comes to Xbox One Next Month - Trailer

We Were Here Together is next entry in the intriguing first person co-op puzzle game series.

When you can't fight and you can't run, what options do you have left? It comes down to your wits, a walkie-talkie, and one other player on the same wavelength, caught up in the same troubling situation as you. Communication is everything in this first person cooperative puzzle game. And if being trapped wasn't enough, not everything is as it seems.  

This time players will begin the game outside the fearsome Castle Rock, at their base camp. But events will inevitably draw them back to the dark citadel where players will find themselves split up, having to communicate by walkie-talkie. As always, getting inside is easier than getting out - and the jester has no intention of helping! 

We Were Here Together will be released for Xbox One on June 5, and is now available to preorder with a 10% discount on the Microsoft Store

Managing Director Lucia de Visser says: “This is our favorite game so far, and we’re thrilled to bring it to Xbox One! By fan request, We Were Here Together has more focus on the story, new environments to explore, and more puzzles for a longer total playtime.”

Whether or not you’ve played a We Were Here game before, you can leap into We Were Here Together and start unraveling the secrets of Castle Rock, the Antarctic fortress at the heart of the series. The game sees players take the role of Antarctic explorers confronted by a mysterious castle in the middle of the frozen wastes. Drawn inside by a distress call, it quickly becomes clear that this is no ordinary ruin… and that there is no ordinary way out.  

You and a co-op partner will need to be each other’s eyes and ears as you endeavor to escape. Every puzzle requires communication to solve – you can talk to each other, or you can stay trapped forever. 

The games of the We Were Here series of co-op puzzle games are connected, but can be played in any order. Following the first visit to Castle Rock in the free prequel We Were Here, Total Mayhem Games have big plans for their world of dark mysteries and complex conundrums. The second episode We Were Here Too was released as a commercial product in early 2018, and the story continues with the new game We Were Here Together. Future episodes will bring more of the exploration and cooperative puzzle solving that gave We Were Here a 92% positive reception on Steam! 

Currently available for PC, We Were Here Together will be released for Xbox One on June 5, 2020.
