WATCH: Fade To Silence Is Now Available In Early Access
During this year’s Game Awards, which only just took place last week, a delightfully horrific looking title was revealed by Black Forest Games. With a Lovecraftian influence streaming through its veins, the Fade to Silence trailer that was shown definitely hit all of the marks that fans of the genre look for – mystery, monsters, an unrelenting environment, and so much more. However, with the game only recently appearing on peoples’ radars, we shouldn’t expect to play the title anytime soon, right? Wrong.
Black Forest Games and THQ Nordic did something rarely seen in the gaming industry anymore – they revealed a title and released it all within the same week. That’s right, Fade to Silence is available through Early Access on Steam right now. The launch of the game even came with its own trailer. While much of the video is footage we already saw at The Game Awards, it does offer up a few new looks at what players can expect. Check it out for yourself below:
As the player you take the role of Ash, a natural but tormented leader. In that role you explore a post-apocalyptic, frozen wasteland to gather the resources necessary to establish a refuge for survival. With dwindling resources, simple tasks like upgrading equipment and collecting materials quickly require an expedition to scavenge the necessary items. In the search for survival materials, players must navigate a vast territory, in which they will encounter Eldritch monsters and an even greater foe: the unrelenting winter. While freezing temperatures constantly take their toll on the player Ash, the deadliest event is that of a blizzard. If caught by surprise, it takes every ounce of skill, determination and luck to survive.”
Now that the game has officially launched in Early Access, it will give players an opportunity to enjoy the horror before the actual release, which is not known at this time. A special promotion is also going on right now that knocks 10% off the $29.99 price tag.
