The Alters was first revealed back in June 2022, and now during the Xbox Partner Preview the first gameplay trailer has been shown by 11 bit studios. It shows the planet Jan has crashed on and the large mobile base that will be home. It also shows the scorching sun that would destroy that base if it doesn’t keep moving. Jan cannot keep the base moving alone, but luckily discovers an element called Rapidium, which can clone him.

These are The Alters, alternative versions of Jan who are a product of making one different choice from the original Jan. One Jan stayed in college, another in their hometown, and another had a failed marriage. While they all share the same DNA, each Jan has his own needs, wants, and ambitions with all these creating situations that could become flashpoints among the crew. You will not be able to please all the Jans all of the time, and tensions could reach dangerous levels. On top of managing this is keeping the base moving and operational, while trying to find a way off the planet.

11 bit Studio has form with games that deal with the human condition and life threatening situations. Both This War of Mine and Frostpunk have tasked players with dealing with tense scenarios with major consequences. Earlier this year, 11 bit studios released a brand new trailer for Frostpunk 2, and also confirmed that would be heading to Game Pass.

The Alters does not have a release date yet, but it is expected to be available this year. The confirmed platforms are PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5. The Alters will also be on Xbox and PC Game Pass day one.
