Peter Molyneux’s Newest Game is The Trail: Frontier Challenge

Peter Molyneux, veteran game developer known for his consistent ability to hype the ever-loving Jesus out of anything, has announced his latest game – The Trail: Frontier Challenge.

The game is actually a “rebuilt and redesigned” version of the mobile game they released last year. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game.

In the game players will “walk down the single track path of destiny” while also taking part “in a variety of fun challenges.” Your final goal is reaching the town of Eden Falls, however along the way you’ll expand and level up one out of five professions, earn money, upgrade your town, and maybe even become the Mayor.

“Our goal with The Trail: Frontier Challenge was to take the core gameplay and narrative of The Trail on mobile, and reimagine it for Steam players. PC players are looking for a completely immersive and uniquely challenging experience and I think they will be pleased with what we’ve created,” Molyneux said.

“The gameplay has been developed to be far more strategic, for example, players will now have to balance what they carry in their packs against how fast and far they can travel. Bigger items are heavier and slow you down, smaller items are lighter so you can travel faster.”

The game will release on Steam sometime this summer, for $15.

    Peter’s back. Surely to show people over at Hello Games how false advertisement is /really/ done.

    At this point he’s been burned so bad I’d be surprised if he just goes back to his old ways.

  • Dom The Elegy

    I think to force that radical of a change his burns would have to be at least on this level.

    The lies that Peter Molyneux has told in the past would make Clinton blush.

    But can you plant trees?

    Wait… did Godus ever finish development or come out of Early Access?

    Well, the guy who opened the Curiosity cube, did he at least get a share of the game’s earnings?

    Ok so it’s ported from mobile and I don’t see the main player moving off the trail at all. Is this going to be a literal walking simulator? Where the player never moves off the path and it only looks like other players do on your screen, but it’s only an illusion.

  • AnarKreig

    For all his lies, it’s amazing the influence that his games proved to be on the video game industry, and features that were first seen in the fable games that have become mainstay.

  • No thanks.

  • NuclearCherries

    This can only end well.

    I’d love to see another Black & White game from him at some point.

  • Madbrainbox

    Before playing Black&White or Fable:TLC I only red the reviews for them.So,for me,those games were fantastic.But I understand why people felt let down after hearing Peter speaking about them.

    I always got the feeling that he just had zero ability to control his enthusiasm and was just eager to sperg over what features he’d wanted to put in games before understanding that certain factors (such as hardware limitations) would mean including them would be impossible, rather than him being an out and out liar.
    Then again I could be completely wrong about that and he was just a grade-A bullshitter.

    No thanks.

    I cant wait for guru larry commentary about this
