Microsoft recently revealed, Bright memory Infinite will officially be heading to the next-gen console this Holiday 2020.
Bright Memory: Infinite is officially heading to Xbox Series X, Microsoft announced during the Inside Xbox May 2020 presentation. The game has been in development for quite a while now, with the original Bright Memory coming out of Early Access in March. It is a blend of FPS games and the character action genre, which expands the original episode available on Steam into a more fully featured game. It’s still the product of a single-developer at FYQD Studio – and the results are impressive after seeing its trailer. It’s bombastic visual design elements are complemented by some truly great lighting and stunning environmental details. However, it’s worth noting that the trailer may be a little jumbled for people to understand.
What’s the background on the game?
For those unfamiliar with the game, Bright Memory Infinite takes place in 2036. In a metropolis where a mysterious aerial phenomenon has emerged. Confounding scientists and supernatural researchers around the world. The title follows the story of Shelia, an agent of the Supernatural Science Research Organization. Who embarks on a journey to investigate the events and discover the origins of the phenomenon. Which seems to have ties to “an archaic mystery – an as-of-yet unknown history of two worlds.” To clarify, Bright Memory Infinite overhauls the entirety of the original Bright Memory. And combines what were planned to be episodes one and two into a single package.
What did the developer have to say about it?
“I am so excited to have the chance to announce to the world that my indie game Bright Memory: Infinite will officially release on the Xbox Series X once development is complete,” says Bright Memory: Infinite developer Zeng Xiancheng via a recent blog post. “It is very humbling to witness the advent of Microsoft’s next-generation console. And what it can do”. As seen in the trailer, the game features your character emerging from a swamp. And engaging in some good old first-person shooting action. The game appears to feature a load of time travel, with enemies and vehicles from various eras appearing at once. Bright Memory infinite seems to be all about building combos through a wide variety of melee and shooting skills. The game seems, at first glance, to amalgamate multiple elements together, from various combat mechanics to RPG elements.
Interestingly, developer Zeng Xiancheng suggests that the game’s combat system will be designed in such a way that allows you to combine various skills. In order to form your own combat style. It doesn’t seem like there is necessarily one path forward. But rather that you’ll need to adjust to the needs of each conflict in order to proceed. As for it’s design, Xiancheng says that most of the game’s visuals are only possible thanks to the Xbox Series X’ DirectX Raytracing technology. And based on what we’ve seen from modern RTX games on PC, this may just be a preview of what studios will eventually be able to do with this technology.
Bright Memory: Infinite will release by the end of 2020 for the Xbox Series X.
