One of the more interesting new reveals during The Future of Gaming was Pragmata, a brand-new game from Capcom that has some pretty impressive visuals and a compelling premise.

Let's get right to it: have a look at the Pragmata Announcement Trailer and see if you can figure out what the heck this game is all about.

The short trailer we saw opened with a man in a futuristic spacesuit walking on a city street devoid of people. He pulls out some kind of device and shoots a grenade into the air which disperses some kind of particles everywhere, revealing holographic images of people. He then discovers a young girl, and that's when everything hits the fan.

As they both look up, the world starts to warp and a space station crashes through the sky. As the chaos settles down, the pair is shown to be standing on the moon.

"What is that?" the little girl says.

"Freedom," the man in the spacesuit replies. "Our freedom."

A handful of more details were revealed in a blog post from CAPCOM. This game is set on a dystopian near-future on the moon, so the earth we see on the trailer might not actually be earth (especially considering something crashes through the "sky" as if it were a ceiling with a hologram on it).

Pragmata will, of course, be making use of a bunch of shiny graphics techs like ray-tracing. As for the plot, CAPCOM is being very tight-lipped about it. In fact, they don't plan on announcing anything else about this game until sometime in 2021.

When is the Pragmata Release Date?

This new game from CAPCOM looks pretty dope, but the trailer was phenomenally vague. When will you be able to get it?

Whatever Pragmata is, you'll be able to play it sometime in 2022. You'll be able to play it on PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.

What do you think of Pragmata? What do you think this game is all about? Let us know in the comments below!
