Bang in line with what we heard back in January when it cropped up in the Steam database, a recent AMD driver update looks to have all but confirmed the existence of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture on PC. Currently a PlayStation 4 exclusive developed by The Chinese Room and Sony Santa Monica, with publishing duties handled by Sony themselves, it now looks as if it’s heading PC-wards.
The telltale signs were in AMD’s Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.15 driver update notes, revealing there was an updated Crossfire profile for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. This is big for a couple of reasons; firstly, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a great game, but secondly it shows that Sony is open to bringing its exclusive games over to PC, at least some time after its console launch.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is, for want of a better term, a ‘walking simulator’, set with a picturesque Shropshire village in England. Some strange event has left the entire place deserted and it’s up to the player to poke around houses, barns and village pubs in the hopes of piecing together what strange fate befell this town.
I played through it last year on PS4 and it’s fantastic for those who like this sort of game. The thing that surprised me the most was the size of the map, there’s a huge environment to explore even outside the borders of the starting village.
While we’ve got no word on a release date for PC version of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, driver support means it can’t be too far off now.
