A while ago I brought you news of an upcoming alien-themed survival horror known as Greyhill Incident. Now when I discovered this, it was a random video that appeared when searching for content on YouTube. The focus of the video was upcoming survival horror games. It’s a genre I really enjoy so I naturally watched it. Another game that caught my eye was a game by the name of Stray Souls. It’s an upcoming horror being developed in Unreal Engine 5 and now we get more information about the game. Therefore with it already on my Steam wish list, it immediately caught my eye.

What we know about Stray Souls is it’s more of a psychological horror game. We play as Daniel who has inherited his estranged grandmother’s house for his 18th birthday. From that moment on he has a traumatic path ahead to discover the truth about his family’s history. The official Steam listing states the following about the game and its features. This may help decide if it’s a horror for you.

Unlock the secrets hidden within the haunted town of Aspen Falls, featuring gruesome enemy encounters, epic bosses, cunning puzzles, and a deep story where not everyone is who they seem. Play as Daniel โ€“ an average teenager whose life is forever changed after inheriting the home of his estranged grandmother and meeting a mysterious woman with intimate knowledge about his family, the house, and its shocking connection to his past. The gameplay elements inspired by classic horror combat with soulslike precision, put a fresh spin on the modern action-horror genre.

And for the game features

  • Explore the town of Aspen Falls and surrounding areas to uncover a malevolent plot set in motion at Daniel’s birth.
  • Immerse yourself in Daniel’s story. Choose responses at key moments through branching dialogue options, shaping Daniel’s tone and personality.
  • Fight hordes of nasty creatures or run for your life. Simplified combat without massive load-outs puts the focus on strategizing combat tactics and resource management.
  • Solve dozens of clever puzzles with out-of-the-box solutions to test your wit.
  • Randomized systems ensure that enemy encounters, item locations, changing weather patterns, and strange phenomena all occur at various places, making each playthrough unique.

What Else We Know On Stray Souls

Well, Steam gives us a lot of detail about the game so let’s tell you all we know.

Next Gen Horror

Experience sheer terror like never before with the raw combined power of the Unreal Engine 5 and MetaHuman technology. Advanced facial animations capture a wide range of human emotions, creating a whole new level of photorealism! Dynamic lighting and weather bring Aspen Falls to life in eerie detail, from the peeling wallpaper of Grandma’s house to the dense reaches of a fog-covered forest and beyond!

Deep Immersive Story

Welcome to Aspen Falls, a small town plagued by a sinister curse devouring everything in its path. After inheriting the home of his estranged grandmother on his 18th birthday, Daniel thinks he’s won the lottery but soon discovers luck had nothing to do with it. He’s now at the center of a dark ritual that threatens his very existence and must embark on a terrifying journey to uncover the secrets of his past.

Fight Or Flight Combat

The choice is yours. Daniel is not a trained soldier. Grab a weapon and stand your ground or run to safety and save your health and ammo for one of the game’s tough bosses.

Mind Bending Puzzles

Test your powers of deduction and problem-solving on classic-style puzzles with a modern facelift.

Mesmerizing Soundtrack

Haunting and ethereal at times. Hellacious and unnerving at others. Get lost in the captivating original score by veteran indie composer Peter Wicher on your journey across Aspen Falls.

So we have the trailer above. Personally, I look at this and still think it needs to be on my wish list. IGN India has covered this. It’s due later this year for PC and Xbox Series X/S. PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. We have no news of an Xbox One release which is not the first game to do this.
