South of the Circle developed by the British BAFTA-winning studio State of Play is a visually impactful and compelling narrative experience featuring a cinematic story about true love and the desire to keep our promises set in the midst of the 1960’s Cold War.

 You’ll play as Peter, a climate scientist who survived a crash-landing and is now traversing across the bone freezing Antarctica. As he’s desperately holding on to his life, the memories of all the past choices that lead him up until this point start resurfacing.

If the trailer isn’t enough to make the point, South of the Circle promises to bring a story with a ‘sweeping cinematic scope’. The game has also brought in some actors Gwilym Lee (Bohemian Rhapsody), Michael Fox (Downton Abbey), Olivia Vinall (The Woman in White), Anton Lesser (Game of Thrones), and Adrian Rawlins (Chernobyl).

We don’t know exactly how the gameplay looks like yet, but South of the Circle definitely stands out visually, and the animation style is very unique.

A release date hasn’t been announced for South of the Circle yet, but the game could be available later this year on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
