At the Future Games Show, the survival-horror game Song of Horror announced plans to release the game on consoles. The port will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 29th, nearly a full year from its original Halloween 2019 release date.

Song of Horror has the player take the role of thirteen different characters, all tied together by the disappearance of a famous author and his family. It quickly becomes apparent that a malevolent force known as The Presence is behind the disappearance, and it's attracted to those that listen to the music of a cursed music box. This cast of thirteen different characters will have to explore a variety of classic horror locations in order to progress the investigation and hopefully put a stop to The Presence. Death is permanent in this game, so if a character dies, another will have to pick up the torch and try to not let them die in vain, and if all of them die, the player will have to start the story from the beginning.

One of the game's main features is the use of an AI that adapts to the players decisions and actions. This results in non-scripted scares as The Presence tries to claim the unlucky protagonists. Because of this, no two playthroughs will be exactly the same as what was a peaceful room in one playthrough will have the player desperately trying to hold a door closed in another or try not to attract the attention of a blind monster in a third.

Fight to survive The Presence when Song of Horror arrives on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 29th, or get it on PC now.
