'Exodus' Reveals More Story Details, Introduces The Green Worlds - Trailer

by Rainier on June 13, 2024 @ 8:00 a.m. PDT

Exodus is a sci-fi action/adventure RPG, a narrative-driven experience that marries cinematic storytelling and broad player agency with modern AAA gameplay.

The debut game from legendary RPG creator James Ohlen’s new studio is a next-generation, story-driven RPG that marries cinematic storytelling with deep emotional impact featuring broad player agency and modern AAA gameplay. The story is fueled by the consequences of player choices due to the impact of Time Dilation, and how they change the lives of those we love most. 

In Exodus, humanity has fled a dying Earth, finding a new home in a hostile galaxy – here, we are the underdogs fighting for survival. As The Traveler, you are humanity’s last hope. Your job is to steal alien weapons and technology from the most powerful beings in the universe, the Celestials – humanity’s greatest enemy. But there’s a catch - Time Dilation. As Travelers on interstellar missions, days for you are decades back home. The sacrifices you make to protect your loved ones create unpredictable consequences that change your world -- reshaping the future. Returning home, you confront the consequences of your choices. In Exodus, the outcome of those choices manifests at a massive level, compounding over generations. 

Developer Archetype revealed a new cinematic trailer that showcases the Traveler’s journey for replacement planets, also known as Green Worlds, that are fit for humanity’s survival.

Over the course of tens of thousands of years at lightspeed, an innumerable amount of Green Worlds have been searched, until one was finally discovered in the Centauri Cluster.

The Colonel has remained at the helm of the ship with the crew throughout it all, leading the search for a new home.

Green Worlds – Our new home?

The promise of a new life here in Centauri. After fleeing a dying Earth and surviving a grueling, over-crowded decades-long voyage (thousands of decades in real-time, if you are not moving at almost the speed of light). Not to mention, being packed into an ark ship cryopod, with rising hardships and dwindling hope… Green Worlds are humanity’s new refuge. Here, we restart our lives.

Hard to believe but they sent out a “Green Signal” – the signal that there are habitable worlds waiting for us in the Centauri Cluster. A message that could only have been sent by those in the ark ships that arrived thousands of years before us, letting us know they found our new home.  But are we safe? Ark ship communication has gone cold. The signal was sent so long ago. Is this our new “green” frontier? How can we know, for sure?

Hark! A green world. Emerald, some would say! Is this our green world? Maybe. But, even the green worlds can be misleading. Some are uninhabitable, or worse deadly, their atmospheres hostile to humanity.

As our sensors scan, we wonder - can we trust this green land to the seeding of our new civilization? Or are we so desperate for salvation that we only see what we want to see? Is this the fresh start the Hammercross crew has been waiting for, or is it a mirage painted in green, hiding new threats?

The Colonel will guide us. Save us. Lead us in turning this new Green World into golden fields and blue skies. He will guide us to a future of prosperity and abundance…

Key Features:

  • Experience the Emotional Impact of Time Dilation - Time Dilation escalates the emotional impact of your story-driven choices like never before. Traveling on interstellar missions at the edge of lightspeed, time moves differently — days for you can be years, decades or even centuries for those back home. The world you fight so hard to save moves on without you, changing and evolving while you are left behind. In your absence, friends and family will grow old and change, while you remain the same, forcing you to exist outside of time.
  • Explore A Universe of Possibilites - As the Traveler, you navigate the stars on missions to steal alien weapons and technology from the most powerful beings in the universe and humanity’s greatest enemy, the Celestials. These remnants are used to fight a destructive force that threatens the entire galaxy, including your homeworld. Through exploration, you gain an understanding of your universe, the Celestials, and how you are connected to the fate of humanity.
  • Lead A Diverse Cast of Companions - As humanity's savior you will lead a diverse set of companions in your fight for humanity, many of whom have their own quest and romance paths. Willing to brave unfathomable danger, and to stare into the abyss at your side, they are ready to join you in facing whatever arises. These are not just brave soldiers – they are genetically engineered savants, punk mech pilots, geniuses cursed with alien viruses and more.
  • Own Your Journey – In EXODUS, you have the agency to customize your experience, from your character to your progression, combat style and the companions you choose. With each mission you grow more powerful as you progress from a lowly salvager to humanity’s last hope. As you infiltrate dangerous alien strongholds, you’ll need to decide which combat tactics and strategies you’ll use to exploit your enemy’s weakness.
