Rufus Comes to Xbox One in Deponia Doomsday

By Ashley Woodcock, 8 months ago
The most successful German adventure series, Deponia from developer Daedalic, will be bringing its fourth instalment from the collection of adventure titles to the Xbox One. Deponia Doomsday tells the story of Rufus who is "apparently the sole (human) survivor" after the flying city Elysium fell from its once peaceful heights. With the planet Deponia being inhabited and taken over by hideous Fewlocks, Rufus can only see one way to get out of this situation: blowing the planet up!

Terrified, Rufus awakes in his bed. Was that a dream or a vision? Fortunately, Rufus can check this right away as the oddball Professor McChronicle has detected several time anomalies. It's rather handy that Rufus finds a time machine and immediately sets out to duly muddle up the past, present and future.With roughly 20 hours of gameplay, time-travelling, fan serving moments, and more, take a look at the key features for the game:

• Dystopia vs. Utopia mixed with Neill Blomkamp's Elysium and Christopher Nolan's Interstellar – Welcome to Deponia Doomsday!
• Following Goodbye Deponia, the first game developed 100% by Jan Müller-Michaelis (alias Poki)
• Fan service: Some players called for an alternate ending and another part to the Deponia saga
• Rufus travels through time – with dramatic consequences
• Goal, Lonzo, Lotti and even Wenzel – Reunions with familiar and over 70 new oddball characters
• The player discovers the floating city of Elysium for the first time
• With around 20 hours of gameplay and over 100 game backgrounds, Deponia Doomsday is the largest and most elaborate Deponia game so far
• Deponia Doomsday serves a timeless (!) genre and once again resurrects classic adventures
A new set of screens have also been released introducing us to many different characters we will see in the game as well as various locations such as the Bomb Tower, Paradox City, a sauna and more. The horrid Fewlocks can also be seen chasing Rufus and his friend in one of the screens too:

Here's the announcement trailer introducing the sequel of the Deponia cult trilogy:

A specific release date is still yet to be announced for Deponia Doomsday but it will be making its way to the Xbox One at some point this year.
