The camera snaps to the third-person during specific segments, like climbing sections or swinging across gaps with the whip. Plenty of puzzle-solving was also shown off as the developers spoke about using Indiana’s brains to solve puzzles and combat encounters.

“There are a lot of Indiana Jones fans at MachineGames. Most of us grew up with Indy and fell in love with the movies and the character when we were young. We’ve just got these ties to the character that go back decades,” says Game Director Jerk Gustafsson. “But even if you didn’t grow up with Indiana Jones, you know Indiana Jones. He’s a relatable type of hero and a true adventurer. That’s a legacy we want to share and be part of, and we want to build something interesting and genuine.”

We also got confirmation that the story will be set in 1937, between the events of Raiders of the Last Ark and the Last Crusade. Troy Baker voices Indiana Jones and uses Harrison Ford’s likeness. We were also introduced to Gina, an investigative reporter who will join Indie on the adventure, and villain Emmerich Ross, who promises to rival Indiana’s wits and intelligence. No release date was given, but a launch window 2024 closed out the trailer.
