Xbox offered the first details on MachineGames’ Indiana Jones project during Thursday’s Developer Direct stream. He also confirmed the name of the game which reads Indiana Jones and the Great Circleand revealed that the game coming to Xbox Series X/S, PC and Xbox Cloud Gaming later this year.

(Unexpectedly) it is about action adventure, in which Indiana Jones tries to stop several villains who seek to obtain a mysterious power. The story takes place in 1937, between the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade. The mentioned power is associated with something called Big circle – a perfect circle around the globe that connects ancient human-built sites of great spiritual significance.

The first game trailer (viewable at the end of the article) shows the protagonist first person perspective, as he explores the Egyptian pyramids, climbs snowy mountaintops, sneaks around enemy strongholds, and simply tries to stay alive in the face of deadly destruction. In cutscenes and some platforming sequences se the camera pulls back, to get a better look at the legendary archaeologist. The game uses the likeness of Harrison Ford, but the voice of the character is voiced by Troy Baker.

It’s still early days, but it seems that MachineGames, with the help of Bethesda’s Todd Howard as an executive producer, has managed to perfectly capture the atmosphere of the Indiana Jones adventure. Therefore, if you are one of the fans, you can look forward to the end of this year when the game will be released.
