It’s the end of October and the spookiest month of the year. Ebb Software’s Scorn, a dark Sci-Fi horror-inspired FPS releases exclusive gameplay reveal on Gamespot. Scorn has been a project many years in the making. The gameplay reveals shows off many aspects of the game and its inspirations from many other games. The horror atmospheric gameplay, mixed with the unique FPS gunplay is reminiscent of the original BioShock. And with the architecture looks as if it was taken directly from Alien, it was obviously inspired by H.R Giger. Combined these create an unsettling and creepy atmosphere, in a world unknown to the player. Add in the fact that many of the creatures on this Bio-mechanical styled ship or labyrinth the disgust and anxious feeling it inspires creates the perfect feeling.
This gameplay trailer comes in the lead up to the Xbox Series X/S launch on November 10th. In the trailer, it states that it is running on Xbox Series X hardware. With the console launch closer than ever, seeing gameplay is key. Even if the game is still in development. You can see the 14-minute gameplay trailer down below:
In the gameplay, we see a glimpse of how the weapon works, able to switch from a revolver-Esque weapon and even a shotgun to a melee weapon that also seems to act as a key. Not only is the weapon on display, but we also get a glimpse at a few of the creatures in this world. These monsters with their terrifying movement, and horrific body design; To even the sounds they utter it is that of pure body horror. Many BioShock fans and those of Alien: Isolation should definitely keep an eye on this game.
Scorn was shown off during Xbox’s Series X partner event back in May, we had an article talking about some information released, which you can read here. It was during this event that it was stated that the game will actually be a console exclusive to the Xbox platform. In an interview with the Developers the said the decision was simple:
“It was a simple decision. Xbox Series X is very capable hardware (on par with high-end PCs) that will run the game at a technical standard of 4k60fps that we aim for Scorn. More so than the 4K resolution, having the game run at 60fps with a certain visual fidelity is imperative for us as developers.”
With no release date given yet, horror fans have a lot to look forward to when it finally releases.
