Scorn, the atmospheric horror game that many horror aficionados have been heavily anticipating, has been dragged forward a week, which means that the new Scorn release date is now October 14th. As for why it's so heavily anticipated, Scorn has been in development with some time, with the game notably taking advantage of the powerful CPU offered by the latest generation of consoles. Let's talk about the game, shall we?
What can I expect from Scorn?
With the Scorn release date only a few weeks away, you might not have much of an idea of what to expect. Basically, it's a first-person horror title set in a nightmarish universe and dream-like world that you'll explore in a non-linear fashion. You'll have to do that because the game is a maze; the setting is apparently a character itself. There are no cutscenes, so you'll have to learn the game's rules and solve its grotesque puzzles while slowly uncovering the secrets of the civilization that used to call this world home.
There's also a limited inventory management system that will try to keep up a constant state of tension in the game. Before choosing to fight, you'll have to think about how your actions will affect the world around you. The rules of this world differ from the ones back home on Earth, so you'll have to carefully consider every choice you make.
When you interact with things, it should also be more immersive than usual, as you'll be picking up objects with your in-game hands and visibly interacting with the machines and instruments. I guess you could say the game is very hands-on, eh?
If you're interested in checking out Scorn, it's currently 10% off on Steam and will remain so until October 21st, a week after it releases on PC and Xbox Series X|S. For more information on horror titles like Scorn, stay tuned to TechRaptor.
