E3 2016: MICROIDS AND PENDULO STUDIOS UNVEIL FIRST VIDEO FOR YESTERDAY ORIGINS, UPCOMING ADVENTURE GAME FOR CONSOLE AND PC
New Adventure Title from Creators of Heralded Runaway Adventure Saga
Offers Globetrotting Journey and Time-spanning Mystery on PS4, Xbox One, PC & Mac
PARIS - JUNE 10, 2016 – Co-producers Microids and Pendulo Studios today announced they will be unveiling more about Yesterday Origins, the upcoming game that takes players on an adventure across the globe and through time, at the upcoming E3 2016 videogames expo. In a teaser video released today, players will get their first taste of a quest full of unexpected turns, disturbing characters and Pendulo Studios’ trademark dark sense of humor.
Scheduled to launch on September 29, 2016 for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC and Mac, Yesterday Origins invites mystery and adventure lovers to take a journey through time and around the world in a new production by the creators of the world-famous Runaway saga. With more than 20 years of experience in story-driven videogames, Pendulo translates its inimitable graphic style seamlessly to 3D in the studio’s first 3D game. The graphic novel-style look is enhanced for the first time by advanced visual effects including dynamic shadows and the implementation of an in-game physics engine.
In Yesterday Origins, players take on roles as John Yesterday and Pauline Petit, an immortal couple who own an antiquities shop in Paris, in an adventure around the world and through time. The story begins when a young John is imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition for sorcery and must use his cunning to escape the prison guards. While most of the game takes place in the present, the Spanish Inquisition scene is the first of several sequences that alternate between past and present, recounting the origin of John’s coveted immortal powers.
The game has more than 25 main characters, all of whom are fully voiced, and boasts an original score. While the game addresses adult themes and sprinkles in racy dialog, it retains a relaxed feel and a good dose of Pendulo Studios’ black humor. The interface is designed to work equally well for game controllers and for keyboard and mouse on PC and Mac.
Yesterday Origins is an adventure game developed and co-produced by Microids and Pendulo Studios, with a launch date scheduled for September 29, 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac. The game will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Polish. The game has not yet been rated by the ESRB but may contain material inappropriate for children.
Yesterday Origins will be presented to the media alongside other Microids titles at E3, the world’s largest videogame expo, in Los Angeles from June 14-16, 2016 in the Concourse Hall, meeting room 8608. Interested media are encouraged to schedule an appointment or drop by to see the game in person.

@KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (7 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (8 Hours ago)
The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (8 Hours ago)
And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (8 Hours ago)
Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (8 Hours ago)
No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (8 Hours ago)
I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (8 Hours ago)
