Indiana Jones And The Great Circle Trailer Puts You In Indy’s Shoes For New First-Person Video Game

TRAILERS

Disney is leaning increasingly into video games as a way to make use of its biggest franchises. Lucasfilm is primarily (and understandably) known for “Star Wars.” But “Indiana Jones” is a franchise well-suited to this realm as well, and has, up to this point, not been maximized in the gaming space. The benefit of a video game is that we can more easily be transported back to the character’s classic era. Director James Mangold did quite a bit of that in “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” but it’s costly to de-age Harrison Ford. That’s not an issue in gaming.

Speaking of Ford, he won’t be reprising his role in the game. Instead, Indy will be voiced by Troy Baker, who played Joel in “The Last of Us” games. In this trailer, he does a pretty convincing job. Game director Jerk Gustafsson had this to say about the game in a statement:

“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. 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.”

“Indiana Jones and the Great Circle” is set to arrive at some point in 2024. The game will be available on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. It will also be available day one on Xbox Game Pass.
