80 Days dev's new game Heaven's Vault trailer features sci-fi archaeology

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

Decipher a forgotten language.

Inkle, the studio behind indie world-travelling game 80 Days has revealed its next title, Heaven’s Vault.

Much like 80 Days, the game looks intriguingly unique, with the trailer showing off a sci-fi setting in which you’ll investigate ancient languages, deciphering their meaning word by word. Alongside deciphering messages, it looks to involve TellTale-esque narrative choices which will impact the future stages of the game.

The blurb for the trailer reads as follows:

“Uncover a forgotten past in this narrative archaeological science-fiction adventure game from the creators of 80 Days. Translate ancient inscriptions and sail the rivers of space, in an open-world mystery where every decision you take has consequences, and where every character will remember what you do.”

Heaven’s Vault is due to release on PlayStation 4 this year, with a PC version and smartphone launch confirmed for later down the line.
