The Forgotten City remembers a July release date

The popular Skyrim mod is finally about to see new life as an updated standalone release after years in development.


The Forgotten City has been in development for a very long time. It's hit a lot of developmental roadblocks, even before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. However, it looks like the long road to release is about to finally end. The Forgotten City has been given a July 28 release date.

The Forgotten City started off life as a mod for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. It was one of the more popular ones, too, at over 1.6 million downloads. Developer Modern Storyteller had hoped to issue an updated version of the mod, even showing something off as far back as the 2018 PC Gaming Show. A long time has passed since then, but now it looks like the game is finally ready to roll out.

The folks at IGN have not have any cases of amnesia when it comes to The Forgotten City. They posted a nine-minute walkthrough back in May, showing off some of the sites that players will find over the course of the game. It also shows off the murder mystery at play, as players look to get to the bottom of what's happening, even as they are caught in an unending time loop.

The Forgotten City will release on July 28 on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. There's a lot of news coming down the pipe over the next couple of days, so keep an eye on Shacknews as we endeavor to keep everyone updated on the latest information.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
