A new horror game is coming to Xbox Series X and it’s definitely a promising one, in every teeth-grinding way. Indie Developer Ebb Software revealed their first person horror adventure Scorn during the Inside Xbox event.
Scorn lures players into a claustrophobic underworld populated with mis-shapen organic forms dripping with unnamed fluids. You will find yourself entirely alone, with only your senses and instincts to guide you through the non-linear nightmare of interconnected spaces. In Scorn, the environment is itself a character, and will do its best to unsettle and unbalance you. Each location has its own puzzles, characters and story to tell, all of which combine to create a cohesive world. On your journey through the game, new areas, skills, weapons and items will be unveiled as you attempt to comprehend the unfolding reality of Scorn.
The environment of Scorn is giving off major Prometheus/Alien vibes with it’s giant heads, strange podiums, and alien juices adorning the room. It’ll be interesting to see if that’s where the comparisons stop. Nevertheless, the Game Director of Scorn Ljubomir Peklar spoke about what makes Xbox Series X the perfect place for Scorn. This is what he had to say:
“For us as developers it’s imperative to present Scorn in the best way possible. The distinctive art style is only half the story – the other half is having all the technical parts of the game running smoothly. That’s where our partnership with Microsoft and their next generation Xbox Series X console comes in. Xbox Series X is an extremely capable piece of hardware that will enable us to run Scorn at 4k 60fps with all the graphical bells and whistles. Ease of development and raw processing power are the primary reasons we chose to go exclusively with Xbox Series X. Players on Series X will experience an uncompromising version of Scorn.”
Scorn will release exclusively on Xbox Series X and is expected to release during the Xbox Series X launch period.
