Want to know more about Everywhere, like when you might be able to play it? Everywhere is the first game from Grand Theft Auto producer Leslie Benzies' new studio, Build a Rocket Boy. Little is known so far about this ambitious new project, but we have gathered all the information we do know so far. Here is everything we know about Everywhere.

  • Speaking of GTA 6, here's what we know about it so far.

The best way to learn more about Everywhere would be to play it, but unfortunately, we do not yet know when exactly we will get that chance. Thankfully, we do know that Everywhere has been in development for a number of years, and is not many years away from release.

During the Opening Night Live event at Gamescom 2022, the Assistant Game Director on Everywhere Adam Whiting did claim that they "aim to have Everywhere in the hands of players in 2023".

The wording implies a 2023 release but is vague enough to suggest that this could be something like a beta or early access period. Hopefully, we will be able to check the game out in some form by the end of the year.

So far, there have been two trailers for Everywhere, revealing some fairly cryptic glimpses of the game. The first is the teaser trailer from Gamescom 2022, which shows many different aspects of the game, or rather, the many games you can make within Everywhere.

We know that Everywhere will allow players to create their own experiences, and this trailer shows off a few possibilities.

Then we got the even more cryptic MindsEye trailer, which appears to follow on from the end of the teaser trailer. Seemingly, this is just one of many potential games playable within Everywhere.

From what we have seen so far, it seems that Everywhere has more in common with Dreams or Roblox than almost anything else in the games industry.

While the exact details have not yet been revealed, we know that players will be able to create their own worlds and games within Everywhere, hence the broad scope of the clips in the teaser trailer.

So far, we know features like third-person perspectives, shooting, platforming, exploring, and driving vehicles will be available in Everywhere. What you do with these features seems largely up to you. The full depth of possibilities here is yet to be shown, but the potential is nearly endless.

From the second trailer, it seems that MindsEye is a game developed by Build a Rocket Boy within Everywhere. For a game within a game, it looks remarkably polished, with modern triple-A graphics.

Whether players could potentially make something on the same level as MindsEye themselves seems unlikely, as Assistant Game Director Adam Whiting referred to this as an immersive, cinematic story created by the development team as part of Everywhere. It seems that the game will feature player-created content and experiences developed by Build a Rocket Boy as well.

That is everything we know so far about Everywhere. For updates on the game as they come out, stick with GGRecon.
