I’m not normally big on horror games, but White Night has certainly caught my attention with its distinct visuals (think of Sin City but in a video game). It’s on my radar now, and thankfully we won’t have to wait long for the game, as the developers have already announced a March 3, 2015 release date for it.
Set in the 1930s and drawing from the rich themes of noir-era storytelling, White Night blends third-person action, exploration and puzzle-solving with the mature tension, challenge and tone of old-school survival horror adventures. As players investigate a shadowy mansion in the dead of night after a near-fatal car crash, what started as a search for aid will become a desperate quest to unearth the secrets behind the manor’s tortured past.
White Night’s stylish black-and-white art direction plays pivotally into its underlying mechanics. Light cuts through the darkness to reveal hidden paths and clues, providing a sanctuary against the terrors lurking the estate–but it’s a resource that must be managed carefully. White Night’s cinematic atmosphere is further advanced with immersive sound design, a haunting soundtrack and chilling VO.
White Night is expected to descend on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam on March 3. It is expected to arrive on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, on March 6.
