Developer Protocol Games and Publisher Raiser Games have announced the release date for the PS4 and Xbox One May 28 release date for survival-horror title Song of Horror. In it, players will have to face the Presence, which is "a dark entity that reacts to your way of playing [and] looms large throughout."
"We've always been incredibly humbled by the reception Song of Horror received from PC players, and now’s the time to drag console players into the brooding mystery the game has to offer,” says studio co-founder Carlos Grupeli. “The survival-horror genre has such a long & rich history on both PlayStation and Xbox that it feels like absolutely the right home for our little ode to all that has gone before to an audience that truly appreciates real scares.”
Song of Horror is a Lovecraftian third-person survival horror that will have players investigate the disappearance of writer Sebastian P. Husher, who disappeared along with his entire family without a trace. There will be 13 characters that will be used throughout the story, which pays homage to the entire survival-horror genre.
Basically, Song of Horror is a non-combat experience where the focus is on running and hiding and trying to avoid triggering manifestation that can bring the game's protagonists "to the brink of insanity". The game has the Presence AI that seemingly adapts to the gameplay, which has the continual goal of spooking the players and never letting up on the spookiness.
For more information on Song of Horror, you can check it out on Steam right now or wait for the console release on May 28 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For more information, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
