Time Loop Murder Mystery Game The Forgotten City Coming to Xbox One

The Forgotten City will be making its way to Xbox One in late 2019, Modern Storyteller today announced.

The time loop murder mystery title will be released alongside its PC counterpart this year, but the developer plans to hold a hands-on session with the demo at PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts, from March 28 to March 31.

The Forgotten City is a reimagining of a 2015 award-winning mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which clocked up over two million downloads across PC and Xbox.

Players are transported to the underground ruins of an ancient Roman city after entering a portal, allowing them to encounter “26 trapped explorers on their last day alive.”

According to Modern Storyteller, players can take advantage of a time loop in the same style as Russian Doll or Groundhog Day, meaning that they interrogate the inhabitants of the underground ruins in order to uncover different secrets and put “together the pieces of a giant interpersonal puzzle.”

The Forgotten City developer has said that the title would be in English, though it will also have subtitles and text localized in German.

“This version of The Forgotten City retains all the beloved gameplay elements from the original mod while upgrading pretty much everything,” says Nick Pearce, the writer and creative director at Modern Storyteller.

“We’ve overhauled the setting, characters and story in the hope that fans of the mod will enjoy the experience even more than they did the first time. This is the story I always wanted to tell.”
