Lost Records: Bloom & Rage new game from DON’T NOD debuts new trailer

DON’T NOD has debuted their new trailer for their Montréal’s branch first game, Lost Record: Bloom & Rage, at the recent ID@Xbox Digital Showcase on IGN.

Bloom & Rage is the first instalment of the Lost Records IP from the creative minds behind Life is Strange which was originally announced at the 2023 Game Awards and is scheduled to be released in late 2024 on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.

Lost Records: Bloom & Rage is a narrative adventure game set in the fictional town of Velvet Cove in the summer of 1995. Four high school friends – Swann, Nora, Autumn, and Kat – spend the summer together hanging out, playing music, and becoming best friends… until something changes the trajectory of all of their lives.

After 27 years of silence between them, they reunite to confront the dark secrets that made them promise to never speak again.

Through the new trailer, we discover Velvet Cove through the lens of a camcorder belonging to Swann who is gearing up for her last summer in the fictional Michigan town.

We get a glimpse into Swann’s introverted nature and her love of capturing slices of reality on her camcorder. We also see some in-game areas that players will explore and characters they will get to meet.

At the start of the summer, Swann meets new friends – Nora, Autumn, and Kat. She quickly becomes close with each of them. Nora is rebellious and full of life; Autumn is the thoughtful leader of the group; and Kat is practical and mysterious. These four friends spend the summer of ’95 discovering secrets that will both unite and challenge their friendship.

Lost Records: Bloom & Rage will be released in two distinct parts, a month apart. A natural break in the story means that players will be able to start discussions, share theories, and eagerly anticipate the next part in the story.

As featured in this new trailer and the original announcement trailer at The Game Awards 2023, Lost Records: Bloom & Rage will have a soundtrack made up of original tracks composed for the game and licensed music. The music is written and performed by Ruth Radelet, Adam Miller and Nat Walker.

Given DON’T NOD’s awesome track record of LGBTQ-inclusive games, we can’t wait to play Lost Records: Bloom & Rage and see what magic and intrigue comes our way!

Lost Records: Bloom & Rage is scheduled for release in late 2024 on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.
