The Eternal Cylinder Strange New World Trailer

The Eternal Cylinder

Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Ace Team have revealed a new story trailer for The Eternal Cylinder.

Players control Trebhum, small life-forms on an alien world. Players must explore and evolve to traverse new areas, as the titular Eternal Cylinder continues to roll onwards- and is impossible to stop.

You can find the Strange New World trailer below.

You can find the full rundown (via the official website) below.

A Trebhum for Everyone

In the Eternal Cylinder, players control a herd of adorable creatures called Trebhums and must explore a strange alien world filled with exotic lifeforms, surreal environments, and the constant threat of the Cylinder, a gargantuan rolling structure of ancient origin which crushes everything in its path.

Unforgettable Alien World to Explore

This unique ecosystem is a massive, procedurally generated land with unique animal AI, real-time world destruction, and organic exploration and puzzle design to create emergent gameplay that ensures no two playthroughs are ever the same.

Unique Mutation System

Discover and adapt dozens of mutations, including new traversal skills like flying and swimming to reach new areas, and new senses to help overcome puzzles, challenges and dangers. Your many Trebhums can each have different mutations, and new mutations don’t replace ones you already have, letting you stack ability sets in dynamic ways.

The Biomes

Players must explore a gorgeous procedurally generated world which is populated with unforgettable vistas and unique landscapes which have something new to discover around every corner.

The Savanna is a wild and beautiful region, noted for the diversity of its flora and fauna. Food and water are plentiful, and the land is rich with natural resources. But one should not mistake this beauty for safety; life in the Savannah is harsh, and dangers abound.

The Tundra is cold and freezing, but it’s far from being a wasteland. Even here, life has adapted and found a way to flourish. Amongst the snow and the crystals grow vast, colorful plants, their roots stretching deep under the permafront, that play host to a unique ecosystem. In the furthest reaches of the Tundra, there are unique crystal formations that seem to have attracted the attention of the Eternal Cylinder’s servants.

This inhospitable land was once home to an advanced, technologically sophisticated civilization. Now the structures they built stand empty, exposed to the wind and sand. But perhaps somewhere deeper in the Desert, where the sun burns hottest, something still remains of the world that was.

The Creatures

The world of The Eternal Cylinder is populated with more than 30 memorable, handcrafted alien creatures. Players must learn their unique behaviors and discover surprising ways to utilize the natural food chain to their advantage.


Players can unlock more than 50+ unique mutations as they explore the world. These include traversal options such as the ability to fly and swim, as well as new offensive tools like the ability to spit fire and create loud noises. Players can stack mutations creating an expansive, ever-evolving skill set.

The Eternal Cylinder launches 2020 for Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
