Check this 11-minute gameplay footage of the stealth title “Echo”

Ultra Ultra has released an 11-minute, full level playthrough of its upcoming sci-fi action adventure game Echo featuring commentary from the developer.

Echo will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC on September 19.

You can check out a brief overview and the 11-minute gameplay video below about the game

Introducing En, a callow space traveler who, after a century in stasis, arrives at her destination: A Palace born of legend, a marvel of an ancient civilization eons gone, still awaiting its first human occupants. Out here, using forgotten technology, En hopes to bring back a life that should not have been lost…

A character-driven story of introspection and discovery, Echo quickly develops into something much more unsettling. Stepping into the shoes of En, it becomes clear that The Palace itself studies everything you are, everything that you do; in order to use it against you.

The Palace creates ‘Echoes’, with the sole purpose of destroying you. The game will shift and change as you do, constantly evolving its Echoes based your actions – If you sneak, they will get stealthier. If you shoot, they will start to shoot back.

Your only respite lies in the sanctuary of a Blackout. As The Palace shuts down in order to update its deadly copies of En, you have a small window of opportunity to act without consequence. But beware, when The Palace comes back online, your pursuers will now be even more relentless.

The enemy is you.
