The game will also feature other classic character cameos. As for the main antagonists, Emmerich Voss was described as a sharp and manipulative character, while Victor Gantz is a devoted Wehrmacht colonel.

Regarding the gameplay, the developers mentioned that the upcoming title is designed to feel authentic to the Indiana Jones experience, with focus on his human qualities and adventurous spirit. The gameplay loop will incorporate the character’s athleticism, combat skills, and good luck, and offer a balance between both action and exploration.

Gustafsson and Jennings shared that the development process included extensive research, re-watching the films, and close collaboration with Lucasfilm Games. The team’s aim was to stay true to Indiana Jones’ character and ensure an authentic experience. According to them, access to Lucasfilm’s resources and archives, along with working with people familiar with the franchise, has proven invaluable.
