Xi: Continuum trailer reveals a new alternate reality

A trailer released today for Xi: Continuum reveals a surreal new world in the upcoming sequel to nDreams' 2009 console-based alternate reality game, Xi.

The original game was available through PlayStation Home and tasked players with finding items and solving puzzles hidden across Sony's service and websites. Xi, which lasted for 12 weeks, had over 630,000 unique players, according to the developer. In September 2009, nDreams announced that Xi's PlayStation Home hub had received over 5 million visits.

"Xi: Continuum crosses between console, websites, videos and the real world, yet can be played at any time," Patrick O'Luanaigh, CEO of nDreams said in a press release announcing the sequel. "We believe that the game offers a genuinely original game experience that will be unlike anything else you have played before."

Xi: Continuum will release "shortly," according to the official website, and the press release teases "more details to be revealed over the next few weeks."
