Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Survival Horror
Resident Evil 7 is off to a strong start. According to Capcom, the teaser demo, Beginning Hour, has hit a milestone as “the most downloaded single-player demo on PS4” after seven days online. Even more impressive is that access is limited due to being restricted to PS Plus subscribers, but even then, it’s had over 2 million downloads globally.
A new video, titled System Trailer, has been released for Yomawari: Night Alone. The open-world survival-horror-styled adventure is set to be released this fall, and the footage offers a first look at how players will survive their time in a haunted world. (There’s a lot of running in fear involved.) Armed with a flashlight, players will have to make their way through an alternate realm as they search for the protagonist’s sister and dog.
The 2012 side-scrolling survival-horror title Deadlight returns today in Deadlight: Director’s Cut for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The revamped version includes updated graphics, improved controls, and a new mode, Survival Arena Mode. The arena pits players against hordes of enemies and hosts strange weapons as well as interactive defenses. Both console versions also feature a new ending for those who are able to complete the game’s Nightmare Mode. As Randall Wayne, players find themselves in an alternate 1986 where they must solve puzzles, sneak around, and battle zombies throughout the ruins of Seattle as they search for their family.
Cyanide Studio’s Call of Cthulhu, an upcoming adaptation of Chaosium’s pen-and-paper role-playing game, just received a new trailer. Created for E3, the video highlights what is in store for players in a macabre 1920’s Boston. As private investigator Edward Pierce, players will look into the murder of Sarah Hawkins on Darkwater Island. Cthulhu’s influence will gradually grow stronger as Pierce pokes his nose around the island and the Hawkins Family Mansion, and the closer he finds himself to the Great Old One’s influence, the more his sanity will be tested.
Yomawari: Night Alone will be making its way to North America by way of NIS. The nightmarish, open-world adventure centers on a young girl who ends up finding herself stalked by spirits in an alternate world after she sets out to find her missing sister and dog. Equipped with only a flashlight, players must sneak and hide as they make their way throughout town in search of clues.
Developer Camel 101 has announced a new survival horror title, Syndrome. Hearkening back to the genre’s early days, players will struggle to survive as they fend off enemies and constantly scavenge for resources. Players must make judicious use of whatever they find in order to survive their trek through a spaceship that is overrun by strange creatures. These monsters are being designed to test the player’s will and skill, and challenge them at all times, with the goal being that “every encounter is an internal battle between fight or flight.”
Resident Evil has turned 20 years old. The series that took the cinematic survival-horror formula to new heights is celebrating its 66 million copies sold, multiple films, and future with a series of videos highlight the franchise’s history. Developer interviews will take players back to the beginning, starting today with a new video featuring producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi. In addition to videos, other events and festivities are planned throughout the year in a multi-month long celebration.
