'Bright Memory: Infinite' Gets PC Release Date - Screens & Trailer

Bright Memory: Infinite is a lightning-fast fusion of the FPS and action genres, where you combine a wide variety of skills and abilities to unleash dazzling combo attacks.

Bright Memory: Infinite is set in a sprawling, futuristic metropolis in the year 2036. A strange phenomenon for which scientists can find no explanation has occurred in the skies around the world. The Supernatural Science Research Organization (SRO) has sent agents out to various regions to investigate this phenomenon. It is soon discovered that these strange occurrences are connected to an archaic mystery – an as-of-yet unknown history of two worlds, about to come to light...

This game depicts the maiden adventure of a woman named "Shelia" in the year 2020.

The 1000-year-old relic swords known as "Kanshou and Bakuya", discovered through SRO research, have been found to comprise a unique multilayered structure, containing a mysterious substance in their cores. This substance, known as the "Soul of Jiu Xuan", possesses the ability to reanimate the dead. In an attempt to take possession of the substance, the "SAI" - a massive terrorist organization controlling its own army - has used a cutting-edge piece of technology known as a "Quantum Transporter" to infiltrate the SRO research facility and steal top-secret and incredibly dangerous data. To make matters worse, while attempting to calibrate coordinates on the Quantum Transporter, Shelia mistakenly activates the device, immediately transporting everyone in the vicinity to the Floating Island - an airborne continent near the North Pole, undisturbed in its slumber for over 1000 years. It is soon discovered that the various beasts and corpses of those who once populated the island have been reanimated by the "Soul of Jiu Xuan", and they're coming for Shelia...

SRO (Supernatural Science Research Organization) agent Shelia's adventure is about to begin.

Bright Memory: Infinite slides into a battle on the homefront on PC (Steam, GOG) starting Nov. 11 at 5:00 PM (Nov. 12 at 2:00 AM CET in Europe) and later on consoles.

FYQD Studio worked closely with NVIDIA throughout the entire development process of Bright Memory: Infinite after the addition of ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS to the original Bright Memory, and the release of the Bright Memory: Infinite Ray Tracing Benchmark.

Bright Memory: Infinite features DLSS, ray-traced reflections, shadows, caustic effects, and global illumination, along with NVIDIA Reflex to minimize latency for an unforgettable experience.

Bright Memory: Infinite is the culmination of years of work to prove just what indie developers are capable of,” said Zeng, indie game developer, FYQD Studio. “I look forward to blowing fans away with an experience that’s not just good-looking, but incredibly fun.”

Key Features:

  • Rack up points and enhance your various skills to freely create your own original combinations
  • Employing an FPS-style POV, discover and solve the various puzzles throughout each stage to advance
  • A mesmerizingly beautiful world combining science fiction and Chinese culture and created using Unreal Engine 4
  • Main Characters
    • Shelia: Hannah Grace
      The female main character. 21 years old. Her parents were in the military. After losing both parents in a sudden tragic accident at the age of six, she was raised by Professor Richard Carter, founder of the SRO. Having spent years undergoing various types of military training and shining among her peers in virtually every field, her near-superhuman abilities landed her a spot as a member of the ultra-elite "SRO Emergency Inspection Team".
    • Carter: Jack Merluzzi
      Founder of the SAI. Male, 35 years old. Taking advantage of his influential status, he struck it rich by buying and selling vast numbers of ancient artifacts on the black market. After learning of the existence of the "Soul of Jiu Xuan", he immediately infiltrated the SRO in an attempt to steal top-secret data.

With GeForce RTX-based graphics card support, Bright Memory: Infinite gains access to a slew of cutting edge ray tracing technologies such as Ray Traced (RT) Reflection, RT Refraction, RT Caustics, RT Shadows and RT Ambient Occlusion leading to high levels of graphical performance.

Of these, RT Caustics is the newest ray tracing technology to be implemented in Bright Memory: Infinite. Caustics refers to the focusing of light rays reflected or refracted by a curved surface or object, or the projection of that envelope of rays on another surface. Rendering of these effects in games generally used shortcuts or approximations to emulate the effect but with RT Caustics this has become possible to render in real time.

Bright Memory: Infinite is coming to PC (Steam and GOG) on November 11, 2021 for $19.99, with an Xbox Series X|S version to follow shortly, and a PS5 edition at a later time.
