GSY Preview PS5 Xbox Series X PC

We've been telling you about The Invincible for a bit of a while now so we're happy to be allowed to share some gameplay footage taken from the preview demo we were sent a few weeks ago. As you will see, it is really a story-driven adventure that seems to lean on the walking simulator genre. It's hard to be fully sure of its potential but its atmosphere is really spot-on and its Firewatch-vibe is something that we really like a lot.
Update: A much shorter version of the video is now up as we had to remove the other one.

Verdict provisoire


Difficile de se faire un avis définitif sur une démo d'une quarantaine de minutes, mais si vous n'appréciez pas les expériences narratives, vous risquez peut-être de trouver le jeu de Starward Industries un brin lent, et surtout très dirigiste. On se trouve en effet ici face à un walking simulator dans l'esprit de Firewatch, les échanges radio entre Yasna et Novik n'étant pas sans rappeler ceux entre Delilah et Henry dans le jeu de Campo Santo. La manière dont sont gérées les interactions entre les deux personnages est fluide et naturelle et le mystère qui entoure la raison de leur présence sur Regis III donne envie de progresser pour découvrir le fin mot de l'histoire. L'atmosphère est vraiment une franche réussie et le titre propose de plus un visuel à la hauteur qui le rend d'autant plus immersif. Nous n'avons cependant pas encore appris grand chose sur la disparition de l'équipage qu'il nous faut retrouver, mais un organisme extraterrestre semble responsable de tout ce qui arrive sur la planète. Les dernières secondes de la démo annoncent la couleur, il a l'air plutôt hostile et remonté, Yasna étant en bien mauvaise posture quand se termine la section de jeu disponible. Reste à savoir si le scénario saura nous tenir en haleine jusqu'au bout, en espérant quelques surprises le long du chemin. La démo en manquait peut-être un peu il nous faut l'avouer, l'intrigue ne faisant pas preuve d'une grande originalité pour l'instant. Ceci étant dit, nous sommes tout de même très curieux d'en découvrir plus après avoir passé un agréable moment sur cette version preview, qui tournait déjà de façon tout à fait satisfaisante. On vous donne donc rendez-vous en 2023 pour un verdict basé sur la version complète de ce jeu attendu sur PC, PS5 et Xbox Series X.

We were asked to remove it although we were originally told there were no restrictions on the content. I'm encoding a much shorter version now.

I like that it’s proper first person with object interactions properly animated not just magically opening doors. Voice acting is not good though. And you had to cut the video at the part which they already showed in trailers…

I didn't have to cut there specifically I just chose to cut when there was sort of a cliffhanger because I didn't have time to do more crafted editing. :)
