Song of Horror has been confirmed for the 29th of October for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Get your skates on. I don’t know why I put that.
Monday’s used to be Horror Monday or Cyberpunk Monday, but that’s dried up a bit, despite there not being a lack of games to choose from, but I’m cool with Horror Tuesday with the announcement of this title.
Featuring all five episodes included with the PC version, Song of Horror, from Protocol Games and Raiser Games, is a survival horror game that features 13 lucky characters come face-to-face with insanity.
Core features of the game include:
- A truly dynamic terror experience: its antagonist, the supernatural entity known only as The Presence, is controlled by an advanced AI (Artificial Intelligence) that reacts to your actions and decisions.
- Experience unbearable fear as this otherworldly being responds to your way of playing and hunts you down in unexpected ways, offering a unique experience to every player and gameplay where tension builds up naturally instead of coming from scripted sequences.
- Live this story through the eyes of a varied set of characters related to the story in their own way. Every character is different, and brings their unique point of view to the investigation, allowing them to approach clues and items differently.
- Their actions and decisions will shape the world: some of them will know more or less of certain aspects of the story; some will be more effective against supernatural manifestations, but all of them can die if the Presence gets to them – and death can be permanent. If they die, you will have to pick the story up with another one, and continue the investigation so their deaths are not in vain.
- A mysterious antique shop, a forgotten abbey, an abandoned mental hospital… Each location in Song of Horror is inspired by the classics of the genre. Explore and investigate these haunted places to gather clues and items that will help you solve challenging puzzles while enduring the agonizing tension of the game’s atmosphere.
We have been blown away by the reception Song of Horror has had on PC, and now’s the time to broaden the game’s base and reach out to console players…The survival-horror genre has such a history on both PlayStation and Xbox that it feels only right to bring our little ode to all that has gone before to an audience that truly appreciates real scares.Carlos Grupeli, Studio co-founder Protocol Games
