Indiana Jones Features Open Areas & First-Person Gameplay

Expert Verified By

Mixture Of Linearity & Open-Areas!

Story Highlights
  • Indiana Jones and The Great Circle was shown off at the Xbox Developer Direct.
  • The game features primarily first-person gameplay, with traversal and cinematics shifting to third-person.
  • Indiana Jones will also offer open areas for exploration and puzzle-solving.

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is the first major AAA adaptation of this pop culture icon in the gaming industry. Following the gameplay premiere at the Xbox Developer Direct, more details about the game have been revealed.

MachineGames’ latest title is set to launch in 2024 and features first-person gameplay in open areas.

Why it matters: Many were expecting the game to feature a third-person perspective, but this approach might be able to provide a more immersive experience.

According to the game’s Steam page, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle offers both linear narrative-driven gameplay and open areas.

This approach will take players through a mysterious adventure full of secrets to discover, traps to dodge, and puzzles to solve. Steam also confirms snakes will be part of this exciting Indiana Jones adventure.

Elsewhere, MachineGames revealed a first-person focus for the game. This choice was likely made when considering the team’s history, allowing the developer to put its existing skillset in first-person gameplay to good use.

Still, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle will offer a few moments of third-person gameplay. During traversal and cinematics, the camera will pan out to change perspective, offering a bit of both throughout this adventure.

Since no Indiana Jones adventure is complete without the iconic whip, this element will be a massive part of MachineGames’ release. The whip will help Indy take on challenging foes, navigate complex environments, and even strike from the shadows when required.

Overall, we find the game quite exciting, though we are a bit surprised at the first-person camera perspective. This was certainly unexpected but might help the game stand out in the genre at the end of the day.

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle was reportedly slowed down by the pandemic and planned to be released earlier than 2023. This should mean that MachineGames has had plenty of time to polish Indy’s latest adventure, living up to the high expectations of millions around the world.
