What is the We Were Here Series all about?

The games of the We Were Here Series of co-op puzzler adventures are playable in any order, although there is a common narrative thread running through them. The series has been enjoyed by more than 5,000,000 players since the release of We Were Here in 2017.

Players take the role of Antarctic explorers who find themselves caught up in a mystery revolving around the realm of Castle Rock. Being separated most of the time, players will each have to explore different areas, while every puzzle requires teamwork to be solved. Asymmetric puzzles give each partner different information, and challenges players to talk to each other and figure out exactly what information they have and how it might lead to a solution. You and your partner have nothing but your wits, a walkie-talkie, and whatever you can find on your way. Do you have what it takes to escape this mysterious realm or will you be trapped… forever?

We Were Here, We Were Here Too, and We Were Here Together are all available on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We Were Here Forever will be released on Steam and Epic Games for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

The features of the We Were Here Series include:

  • Two player cooperative online adventure – featuring in-game walkie-talkies
  • Overcome challenging asymmetric puzzles as you attempt to escape
  • Atmospheric thriller setting that will keep you on the edge of your seat
  • Explore intriguing frozen environments – search for clues in the sinister Castle Rock, a ghostly graveyard, and other outdoor areas
