11 Bit Studios have announced their relationship with British BAFTA-winning studio State of Play, adding another game to their increasing publishing portfolio. South of the Circle is a visually spectacular and fascinating narrative experience set against the backdrop of the Cold War in the 1960s. Check out the announcement trailer revealed by 11 Bit Studios yesterday.

The game follows Peter's tale. He is tangled in life-defining decisions and divided between profession and genuine love; he finds himself caught in the crossfire of behind-the-scenes conflict between military forces. Set in a Cold War era, the game is characterized by its tale, span periods, minimalist visuals, and superb writing and voice acting, all of which combine to create an experience akin to a top-tier film. Gwilym Lee (Bohemian Rhapsody), Olivia Vinall (The Woman in White), Richard Goulding (The Crown), Anton Lesser (Game of Thrones), and Adrian Rawlins (Chernobyl), and Michael Fox (Downton Abbey) are among the performers heard on-screen.

“South of the Circle is one of those love-at-first-sight things,” says Marek Ziemak, External Development Director at 11 Bit Studios. “The game's narrative and artistic sensitivity immediately captivated us. South of the Circle is heavily-focused on storytelling inspired by world-class cinema, which makes it a bit different from our previous titles. Once players experience its instantaneously engaging, emotion-packed narrative, we're convinced they'll understand why we wanted to have it in our publishing portfolio. And we’re thrilled to be able to start working with State of Play since it’s a studio that has been on our radar for a long time”.

South of the Circle will be available for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. No release date has been confirmed by the developer of this title, State of Play, nor by the publisher 11 Bit Studios.
