Always in search of deep entertainment, 11 bit studios can add another flower to its publishing portfolio thanks to its collaboration with BAFTA-winning British studio State of Play: South of the Circle is a visually stunning and intriguing narrative experience with a cinematic story set in the 1960s during the Cold War. The title will be released for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

11 bit studios, the acclaimed studio behind titles like This War of Mine, Frostpunk, Moonlighter and Children of Morta, releases another compelling story and staging title this year: South of the Circle from BAFTA-winning studio State of Play tells the story by Peter, who not only gets caught between the fronts of the Cold War in the 1960s, but is also torn between his professional career and the love of his life. The story is presented in a minimalist yet haunting style and brought to life by a talented cast of English voice actors.

South of the Circle: Peter's Story

South of the Circle tells the story of Peter. He finds himself faced with life-changing decisions, torn between his career and his true love, and drawn into the hidden conflict between warring military powers.

The game is set in a Cold War world and is reminiscent of a high-quality cinema film thanks to its story that spans the past and present, its minimalist style and its outstanding writing and voice acting. High-profile talent lending the characters' voices includes Gwilym Lee (Bohemian Rhapsody), Olivia Vinall (The Woman in White), Richard Goulding (The Crown), Anton Lesser (Game of Thrones), Adrian Rawlins (Chernobyl) and Michael Fox (Downton Abbey).

“It was love at first sight with South of the Circle,” says Marek Ziemak, External Development Director at 11 bit studios. “We were immediately drawn into the game's narrative and artistic sensibility. South of the Circle has a strong focus on high-class cinema inspired storytelling, which makes it a bit different from our previous titles. We firmly believe that once players immerse themselves in the gripping and emotionally charged story, they will immediately understand why we have included the title in our portfolio. And we're delighted to be working with State of Play, having had our eyes on the talented studio for a long time.”
