Bright Memory is an intense, genre-melding first-person-shooter that's currently available for PC's on Steam, and has been since earlier this year. It's an incredible proof-of-concept, but Bright Memory as it is now is rather short, and doesn't contain a huge amount of content. However, the game is built by one man, known as FYQD-Studio, and they're working on building onto the concept of Bright Memory with a major expansion, improvements, and much more in the sort-of-but-not-really sequel Bright Memory: Infinite.
While we all wait for baited breath for Bright Memory: Infinite, FYQD-Studio and publisher Playism have announced that the first Bright Memory is joining the growing ranks of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch titles, debuting on consoles on November 10, 2020. This will give players a chance to jump into FYQD's creation and see what Bright Memory has to offer, which is insane levels of shooter action packed into a relatively modest game. It spells big things for Bright Memory: Infinite, which will be arriving sometime in 2021, and will look amazing on Xbox Series X when it launches.
Bright Memory: Infinite will massively expand upon the first Bright Memory, which is little more than a demo, and feature improved visuals and even ray tracing support, and frankly looks pretty incredible. It's even more notable when one realizes that one person is behind this game, making it obvious they have put a ton of work into this passion project.
If you're interested in Bright Memory: Infinite, you can already wishlist it on Steam, but you'll have to wait a little longer before pre-ordering or purchasing it on consoles. Hopefully we won't have to wait long to learn, especially with the Xbox Series X and S only a little ways away, with pre-orders opening throughout today.
