There have been Indiana Jones video games in the past, but none of them were particularly successful, and fans have been waiting for a title that would do justice to the iconic movie franchise for many years.

We first heard about Bethesda and MachineGames'plans for an Indiana Jones first-person shooter action adventure game back in 2020, and we finally have a first look via an exciting gameplay trailer.

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is set between the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade, and will follow the legendary archaeologist/adventurer on a perilous new journey.

According to the press release, the game "features a mix of combat, stealth, puzzles, gunplay, and of course...Indy's whip! Use it for traversal, as a distraction, or taking out enemies. You aren't just playing as Indiana Jones, you ARE Indiana Jones."

This take on Jones (thankfully) features Harrison Ford's likeness, and EW has exclusively revealed that Troy Baker (Joel in The Last of Us games) will provide the character's voice.

"He really brings forward that charm and sense of humor in such a good way," MachineGames’ co-founder and lead game designer Jerk Gustafsson tells the site. "He's also a very big Indiana Jones fan, which is super cool. So he's also very invested in the game."

Indy will one again be joined by a female companion on his latest adventure: Gina Lombardi, an investigative journalist who has a personal stake in this story. The character will be voiced by Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi, who appeared opposite Nicolas Cage and Pedro Pascal in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.

"I don't know how deep I want to go into that at the moment," Gustafsson says of Miss Lombardi, who is clearly going to be keeping a few secrets. "I would say that she is also somewhat of a resistance journalist, and that has been an important part as well for shaping this character to make sure that Gina has her own goals."

Check out the trailer and poster below.

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle will be an Xbox exclusive title, and is set to hit shelves later this year.

Wny is it an FPS!

Origame - 1/18/2024, 8:36 PM
@OptimusCrime - you really don't think sh!t like that plane scene look so epic in first person?

Bare minimum it gives a different feel to something like uncharted or tomb raider.
ReverseFlasher - 1/18/2024, 8:57 PM
@OptimusCrime - and only xbox
McMurdo - 1/18/2024, 11:16 PM
@OptimusCrime - because it's far more immersive as a fps
McMurdo - 1/18/2024, 11:17 PM
@ReverseFlasher - yessir will be on PC most likely. But ya I'm an Xbox guy so sign me up.
Vigor - 1/18/2024, 11:17 PM
@OptimusCrime - risky choice for sure. Likely because it's on Xbox. If it were Playstation then it'd be 3rd person. Just the way things are. But bioshock did first person adventure well. I'm optimistic. This looks good
Urubrodi - 1/19/2024, 5:24 AM
@Vigor - Completely different situation, Bioshock was an original story where seeing your character's face didn't matter, it actually helped the story the fact that you were a "nobody" given what happens in the story. Indiana Jones is an established IP, where the main selling point is the fact you are playing Indy, so of course I'd want to see him. Doesn't mean it will be a bad game, but for me is a bit of a let down.
OptimusCrime - 1/19/2024, 5:32 AM
@Origame - No, ive never had an adventure game where i felt FPS did good.

Horror and games with guns do though
Fogs - 1/19/2024, 5:34 AM
@OptimusCrime - I think it's good cause since at least 2010 everything is an assassin's creed clone.
OptimusCrime - 1/19/2024, 5:35 AM
@McMurdo - i disagree,

For me adventure games work better in 3rd person.
Xbox had there chance to make an competitor to Uncharted with this
Fogs - 1/19/2024, 5:35 AM
I'm glad they're testing something different for a change, ffs. The gaming industry desperately needs it.
OptimusCrime - 1/19/2024, 5:36 AM
@Fogs - True, but with Indiana Jones to couldve gone the Tomb Raider/Uncharted way
Fogs - 1/19/2024, 5:43 AM
@OptimusCrime - Yeah, they could. It would be yet another assassin's creed clone.
Origame - 1/19/2024, 7:37 AM
@OptimusCrime - dying light.

And games with guns? Well good thing indy is known for using guns.

McMurdo - 1/19/2024, 7:02 PM
@OptimusCrime - looks like this is the competition and they aren't aping Uncharted but going for a more immersive experiemce with Indy. Game looks fire 🔥
bobevanz - 1/18/2024, 8:10 PM
Color me surprised, here's to hoping Short Round shows up
NinnesMBC - 1/18/2024, 8:15 PM
It has potential to be good, though I wished it wasn't from Indiana's POV.
Jarvisjackrabbit - 1/18/2024, 8:16 PM
FPS games aren’t usually my thing, but this looks like fun. It’s probably going to be more of a first-person adventure game with stealth and puzzle elements than a shooter if today’s footage is a reliable indicator.
FusionWarrior - 1/18/2024, 8:27 PM
Hey that looks more fun than the movie I saw!
Origame - 1/18/2024, 8:37 PM
@FusionWarrior - hepatitis c is more fun than the movie you saw.

'There have been Indiana Jones video games in the past, but none of them were particularly successful, and fans have been waiting for a title that would do justice to the iconic movie franchise for many years.'

The Fate of Atlantis was a big hit and is probably the most popular Indy thing outside the first three movies.
theFUZZ008 - 1/19/2024, 12:55 AM
@DarthVanDyke - Yep. Better than some of those movies, too.
bkmeijer1 - 1/19/2024, 2:27 AM
@DarthVanDyke - wish they remaster/remake that one (and maybe a few of the others). Guaranteed moneymaker right there
Ryguy88 - 1/18/2024, 8:40 PM
Still bitter over how bad Starfield was and that I was duped into buying an xbox just for that one trash game.
Vigor - 1/18/2024, 11:18 PM
@Ryguy88 - hey bud there's more to xbox than just exclusives. A lot more.
LeonNova - 1/19/2024, 12:14 AM
@Vigor - If it's the only console you have, I'm sure there's plenty of value to be found in it, especially with Game Pass. I have a PS5 and I'm not exactly loaded enough to buy consoles whenever I want, so I don't know if a Xbox Series would be worth it. All the multi-platform games, I can already play on PS5. Exclusive-wise, the only thing Xbox has right now that I'm interested in is Halo: Infinite. Hellblade looks pretty cool, and I'm interested in Blade and Fable. But on PS5, I'm got Spider-Man 2, God of War: Ragnarok, FF XVI & FFVII Rebirth, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Naughty Dog games, Bluepoint games, etc.
bkmeijer1 - 1/19/2024, 2:28 AM
@Ryguy88 - I did the same thing, and I actually quite like it. Yeah, it is pretty much Skyrim/Fallout in space, but that's pretty much what I expected anyway.

Outside of that, there's a few games I look forward to. Indiana Jones, Hellblade II and Avowed all look fun imo
Urubrodi - 1/19/2024, 5:30 AM
@Vigor - Well but on PS5 you can play all the multi-plats and huge amount of quality exclusives. You might argue "oh, but we get day 1 releases on Game Pass", but how many of those are actually worth it? You may need to spend a bit more on PS5 games but at least you get your money's worth. Plus... you can play every XBox games on PC anyways, in case something good eventually comes out for it, which so far has not happened. Maybe Indiana Jones and Hellblade 2 might change that.
Fogs - 1/19/2024, 5:37 AM
@LeonNova - That is if you only care about new games.
Vigor - 1/19/2024, 7:18 AM
@Urubrodi - that argument works if you care to play on the PC. But I don't. I prefer the ease and comfort of console gaming with a controller in hand. Specifically the familiarity of an Xbox Controller. And Xbox live gaming with friends I've known for 15 or more years now that I met all the way back with the original Xbox and playing halo 1 online with xbconnect before there was an Xbox live

I would buy a Playstation 5 when it's cheap for a few exclusives. The third person games the system seems to be known for. But not now as I have a huge backlog of games on the Xbox series x that I am no way near finishing
Ryguy88 - 1/19/2024, 10:58 AM
@bkmeijer1 - @Vigor -

I own both systems but dont get a lot of time to play games anymore. Right now I'm playing Resident Evil 4 on PS5, and it's great! Mind you, I'm only 8 hours in and I've been playing since November.

Its ironic, I'm actually in a position to afford multiple systems but now I dont have time to play them. Oh well.

And I wish Starfield was skyrim in space. That's why I bought it with the system blindly. Big mistake. The fast travel and barren, repetitive lands is just a chore.

I'll pick up elder scrolls 6 though, I'm hoping it's this generation of systems.
Vigor - 1/19/2024, 2:25 PM
@Ryguy88 - saaaaame

I just don't have the time. That's why my backlog is so long
I'm also playing re4 remake but on the Xbox. And I'm probably only 5 hours in but I bought it 2 months ago
Job, wife, house duties, active dog, toddler. All that means my old favorite pasttime takes a backseat
Ryguy88 - 1/19/2024, 4:22 PM
@Vigor - same boat, maybe we'll get time to play when the kids are in college and we are retired lmao
garu - 1/18/2024, 9:09 PM
looks like a 2011 game that will run better with mods so I'll just wait for a sale and mods
OriginalGusto1 - 1/18/2024, 9:32 PM
I still can't finish the last of us 1 remasterd. [frick]!
garu - 1/18/2024, 9:47 PM
@OriginalGusto1 - skill issue?
Monkeyballs2 - 1/19/2024, 1:00 AM
@garu - No. it’s hard for @OriginalGusto1 to play a slow-ass boring game about mopey white people when he’s busy scratching his balls with one hand and and pounding Busch Lite with the other.
garu - 1/19/2024, 1:08 AM
@Monkeyballs2 - LOL gotcha
Monkeyballs2 - 1/19/2024, 1:34 AM
@garu - I might’ve confused The Last of Us with the Uncharted game. One thing I do know is that Gusto’s old and his shit don’t work.

Xbox exclusive… barf
