If you’re looking for an original horror game to play before Halloween, New Blood Interactive has your back with a Faith: The Unholy Trinity release date announcement. It’s releasing on October 21st and will have you playing as a young priest struggling to fight against demons, insane cultists, and your own weakening faith. You’d think that your faith would be bolstered by fighting against demons, but I guess not. Let’s take a closer look at this game, shall we?
What can I expect on the Faith: The Unholy Trinity release date?
New Blood Interactive has released a lot of interesting games, including Dusk, Ultrakill, and the recent Early Access launch Gloomwood. Those games, though, look and play somewhat similarly. They aren’t identical by any means, but you can glance at those games and say, “oh yeah, those are New Blood Interactive games”. That's a good thing, but it’s even better to see New Blood Interactive step out of the boomer shooter niche they’ve carved out for themselves.
Faith: The Unholy Trinity might be the start of a new 8-bit horror trend, which would be an interesting place to go. As it’s a pixel horror, you’ll have to use your imagination more, and you’ll also be using your holy crucifix to perform exorcisms while fighting possessed cultists. That sounds exhausting, and there’s also haunted objects you have to deal with as well.
The game starts off on September 21st, 1986, with two priests entering the Martin Family home in rural Connecticut to investigate an apparent case of demonic possession. The game features three separate chapters, with each building off the events that have already taken place. To be honest, this poor priest sounds like he needs a break. First, he goes to a house where an exorcism went horribly wrong, then he “descends into a new nightmare”. After that, he has to confront a Satanic cult that want to summon a “horrifically powerful demon”. Poor guy is going to need a long vacation after this.
If you want to try the game before the Faith: The Unholy Trinity release date, there’s a demo currently available on Steam. For more information on Faith: The Unholy Trinity and other interesting horror games, stay tuned to TechRaptor.
