Revealed at the Xbox and Bethesda conference, Somerville is the brainchild of former Playdead employees Chris Olsen and Dino Patti, who had previously worked on Inside and Limbo. It looks to feature intimate and sombre repercussions of a large-scale conflict that we have come to expect from Playdead games.

We were given a glimpse of the journey that awaits us as a family of three tries and survive in a post-invasion world. It evoked similar vibes to the War of the Worlds franchise, but with a unique “show don’t tell” approach the creators are known for.

Somerville is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC in 2022. Game Pass subscribers will be able to play the game at no extra cost from the day it releases.
