Yesterday Origins Launch Trailer Arrives Ahead Of Release

Ubisoft’s launch trailer of Watch Dogs 2 went live a week ahead of the game’s release on Xbox One and PS4 and several weeks ahead of its launch on PC. Microids and Pendulo Studios seem to understand that launch trailers are likely more effective when they arrive during the actual launch of the game.

They released the launch trailer for Yesterday Origins, the new point-and-click adventure game that has a devilishly supernatural twist to it, ahead of the game’s arrival tomorrow for home consoles and PC. It focuses on a character who believes he’s immortal and must discover the secrets of his past. This includes players having to venture back and forth in time to piece together the events that led up to the main character’s predicament.

You can check out the trailer below to get a good ‘ole glimpse at the cinematics and story for Yesterday Origins.

The trailer doesn’t actually focus much on the gameplay, but instead puts more of a focus on the story involving John Yesterday and his immortal partner Pauline Petit. There’s a healthy mix of story and humor that Pendulo has tried infusing into the game.

Pendulo has tried retaining the art-style that they used in the Runaway games but this time they were able to bring that style to life in a fully 3D engine.

Yesterday Origins will support full voice-overs in both French and English, and you’ll be able to pick up the PS4, Xbox One or PC starting tomorrow. This is one of the few games that keeps a bit of that old-school flavor in it by not bowing down to the politically correct authoritarians that currently rule gaming. The humor can be crude, there are sexual themes, and this is not a safe space game.
