It seems to be a period for horror titles. We have Chernobylite coming out on console, not long since had Resident Evil Village, and just this week the first of the Horror Tales series released with The Wine. Another one due very soon and as it stands out this month is a title by Dual Effect which slipped through the radar. That game is called Tormented Souls.
What is Tormented Souls?
Dual Effect worked on this with Abstract Digital and its survival horror. If you love Resident Evil, Silent Hill, or Alone in the Dark then this may be a game for you.
So it’s another survival horror franchise coming but with the above-mentioned games, it is joining some impressive companies.
What is the story about?
You play as Caroline Walker. In this story, she is investigating the disappearance of twin girls. This investigation eventually leads her to an old abandoned mansion at Winterlake. She finds trouble and wakes up attacked by medical equipment in a bathtub.
And such is the style of game, as she explores the mansion she needs to do all she can to stay alive.
Does it play like the likes of Resident Evil?
It says on the official website that it offers “classic gameplay, with a modern control scheme and a dynamic camera (for a new generation)”. IGN did post the opening 20 minutes of gameplay so it may give an idea of what to expect.
What systems is it coming to?
The official website states the following platforms
- PlayStation 4
- PlayStation 5
- Xbox One
- Xbox Series X/S
- Nintendo Switch
- PC via Steam
Price isn’t listed on the website but it listed on Amazon for £29.99 which would be around $35
When is it coming out?
It is scheduled for this month though there seems some discrepancy. In the UK the main gaming retailer is GAME. They have the release for the 13th of August. Amazon has it scheduled for the 27th of August. So two main retailers with very different dates. So we may not find out till the day of release.
