Good Shepherd Entertainment publisher and developer ACE Team postponed The Eternal Cylinder to 2021. Initially, the title would arrive in 2020.
Scheduled for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store, the postponement will allow the team to optimize the game better. A closed beta is scheduled for early 2021. You can register on the official website. It is not known whether the beta will be PC only.
In The Eternal Cylinder, players control a group of adorable creatures called Trebhums. They must explore a strange alien world, full of exotic life forms, surreal environments, and constantly threatened by Cylinder. This gigantic and ancient structure rolls out and crushing everything in its path.
The ecosystem is a huge area with procedural generation, unique animal AI, real-time destruction of the world, exploration, and design of organic puzzles to provide immersive gameplay that ensures that the game is always different.
Their Trebhums start at the bottom of the food chain, but they can mutate and evolve, gaining new attributes and skills by feeding on flora and fauna elements. Discover and adopt dozens of mutations, including new movement skills, such as flying and swimming to explore new areas, and new senses to help solve puzzles, overcome challenges and dangers.
Each of your Trebhums can have different mutations, and new mutations don’t replace the ones you already have, allowing you to mix skillsets dynamically. Each mutation also changes the physical appearance of a Trebhum, which means that mixing them will create countless and surprising little creatures that players will be able to discover as they explore this unique and alien ecosystem.
