Revealed at the TGA 2023 was the trailer for Exodus, a spacefaring RPG being developed by Wizards of the Coast Studio, Archetype.
Exodus is a Space RPG Coming From Ex-BioWare Devs
Unveiled during The Game Awards 2023 was the space Action-RPG Exodus. Being developed by Archetype Entertainment, a studio backed by Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro. The game is a narrative-driven title set to give plenty of player agency and is a AAA game.
The trailer gives a few clues to the game’s main features, including time dilation, which could be part of the game’s mechanics and story. As for the role of Traveler, players are sent out on a quest to help humanity survive by finding tech to fight off the hostile race called the Celestials. Travelling through lightspeed takes a toll, as time can skip decades in human years. Choices made in the game will have consequences. Expect alien weapons, companions and a deep progression system.

Time Dilation certainly sounds like an interesting concept and feels very reminiscent of the sci-fi movie Interstellar. Coincidentally Matthew McConaughey stars in both Exodus and Intestellar, and this will be his first role in a video game which he seemed rather hyped about when on stage at TGA.
From your homeworld, there will be those who share your Dynasty’s vision and flock to your cause. Among the Awakened and the Changelings, you may find some of your most loyal followers in the never-ending war against the Celestials. Choose the best among them to stand with you. No matter their origins, these Companions bring unique skills and backgrounds that will prove invaluable as you face the uncertainties of the universe together.Exodus website
The Archetype studio is made up of veterans from a number of studios who have worked on games such as Dragon Age: Origins, Halo 4, Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Republic. If the trailer is anything to go by, it’s going to action orientated with some deep storytelling.
Exodus will be coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
