8 Games to Look Forward to in August

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

Story-driven games have grown in popularity in recent years, and one of the best has arguably been Dear Esther by The Chinese Room. 

But while their first game didn't really have much in the way of interactivity, the British developer's first game on console is complemented with not only the freedom to interact with the environment, but much, much more.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture takes place in 1984 in the English countryside of Yaughton Valley, Shropshire. Through six different characters, each with their own story, players immerse themselves in a beautifully detailed open world to discover and uncover the mystery of the apocalypse.

Homes are left empty to be explored, and environments are left with traces of those lost. With a haunting soundtrack, revolutionary environments, and non-linear interactive storytelling, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is an innovation deserving of the current generation of consoles.

Discover the Rapture exclusively on PlayStation 4 on August 11th.
