Twelve Minutes, the indie point-and-click time-looping puzzle game that has been in development for at least seven years, finally has a release date of August 19, 2021, as Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase revealed today at the ‘E3 2021..
It will also arrive on Game Pass on day one and will be an exclusive console launch for Xbox. You can also grab it on PC through Steam.
Twelve Minutes was first revealed in 2015, and premiered again at E3 2019 with an updated look. Since then, we’ve been mesmerized by the game, both because of its interesting time loop mechanism surrounding a man trapped in a 12-minute time loop in his apartment, but also because of the mystery it promises. Having recently played a near-final version, we’re still enthralled, especially now that it’s made up of a three-person crew made up of famous actors: James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley and Willem Dafoe.
Today’s Xbox and Bethesda Storefront is part of E3 2021, which will take place from June 12 to 15. This year’s E3 also includes events from Square Enix, Ubisoft, Nintendo, Devolver Digital, and more. The summer of the game.
