South Korean-based developer Shift Up has announced Project EVE, an upcoming Action RPG created in Unreal Engine 4. This brand-new game that's in the works has been announced for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The announcement of this new game is a little light on the details, but we can say one thing for certain: it looks absolutely gorgeous.

See just how pretty this game looks for yourself by checking out the Project EVE Teaser Trailer:

The trailer opens with a broad look over a wasteland before a drop pod impacts the surface from space. The pod has "The Wave for Mankind" emblazoned on its side. A stunningly beautiful woman wearing the world's most impractical survival suit steps out and takes a look at the carnage. Dead bodies linger in the area along with burning wreckage of what looks like a spaceship. The camera focuses on this mysterious woman and she speaks a few lines of dialogue. While the dialogue is in Korean, the developers have helpfully included English captions.

70 years from first "Dive"

We finally became the first survivors.

Now, it's time to get Earth back.

It certainly makes for an interesting premise, although all we have to go on is a generic story idea and a very nice establishing shot of the scenery.

GamesInsiders reports that this certainly isn't the first game made by the company; Shift Up has also done work on the popular mobile game Destiny Child. Their website indicates that they are concurrently developing another project called NIKKE: Goddess of Victory. This latter title also seems to be geared towards the mobile market, so it looks like Project EVE is going to be the company's first title coming to PC and modern consoles.

Unfortunately, we don't have much more in the way of details for Project EVE beyond the announcement and the trailer. Hopefully, we'll find out some more substantial details about this game in the coming months.

What do you think of Project EVE? Does the teaser trailer capture your interest, or do you need to know more about the game before you can get excited about it? Let us know in the comments below!
