Xbox’s Indiana Jones game revealed

MachineGames has shown the first full trailer for its Indiana Jones game, revealing that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as the hero – in likeness at least.

The Xbox and PC game, which will be called Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, will feature the likeness of Ford, but will be voiced by Troy Baker.

The new adventure, which will also star Tony Todd, takes place between the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark (the first movie) and Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (the third movie).

“When the game begins, Indiana is working at Marshall College”, senior narrative designer Edward Curtis-Sivess explains. “He wakes up the middle of the night to the sounds of a break-in and rushes to confront the thief in the college museum.

“The mysterious giant of a man makes off with what seems to be a historically insignificant artifact, sparking Indiana’s curiosity. Following the trail, Indiana heads to the Vatican hoping to learn why this particular relic was stolen, and discovers things aren’t what they appear.”

“He starts pulling at the strings of a mystery,” adds cinematic producer Mitra Askhkan Far, “and it all unravels until he has no choice but to see it through to the end, whatever the end may be.”

According to MachineGames, the game’s locations will range “from the hallowed halls of the Vatican and the arid deserts of Egypt to the lush and sunken temples of Sukhothai and the frigid peaks of the Himalayas”.

The game will mainly be played from a first-person viewpoint, but during cutscenes and certain movements (such as climbing) the camera will switch to a third-person view, so players can see Indy himself.

“Our game is about putting you in the shoes of an iconic hero,” design director Jens Andersson – director of FPS classics Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness – added. “Since we are doing this mostly in first-person, you have the chance to truly become Indy.

“First-person makes you part of this world, allowing you to explore and experience things more intimately. What will you do when you’re dropped into this adventure with your wits and your whip?

“The world of Indiana Jones is a world with mysteries around every corner, where you’re racing against the clock and outsmarting your enemies as you hunt down artifacts.”

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is set to be released later this year, and will be available on Xbox Series X/S, PC and Game Pass.
