Scorn is an atmospheric first-person horror adventure currently in development by Ebb Software. Meaning, don’t expect a launch date or any grand information about this title for some time.

For now, the official description for the title reads: “Scorn is set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry. It is designed around the idea of “being thrown into the world”. Isolated and lost inside this dream-like world, you will explore different interconnected regions in a non-linear fashion. Every location contains its own theme, puzzles, and characters that are integral in creating a cohesive world.”



Chorus is a new space-flight combat shooter that focuses on protagonist Nara and Forsaken, her sentient starfighter during a compelling, personal journey to take down the dark cult that created her. Expect to journey across the galaxy, taking in breathtaking vistas, and undergoing weapon and telekinetic-based combat. There will even be opportunities to take down large ships in epic space battles.

“Unlock devastating weapons and mind-bending abilities in a true evolution of the space-combat shooter. Explore breath-taking interstellar vistas, ancient temples, and venture beyond our waking reality. Outgun, outwit, and outmaneuver your enemies in an epic quest to free the galaxy from oppression.” Find out more information on this next-gen title on Xbox’s website.
