Box Game Studios has just revealed its upcoming first-person survival game titled Abandoned. Arriving on the Sony PlayStation 5 at the end of this year, Abandoned is a cinematic take on the horror shooter genre with an added survival twist.
From the teaser, scenes of a wintery forest are shown along with a sign that reads “God’s Town.” The narrator goes on to explain that you are trying to escape from an unknown cult and power-hungry leader where things like food and water are scarce. The game description also explains that this is not your ordinary FPS as things like ammo and aiming were all highly considered for this game — “firing weapons in Abandoned will be realistically slow. You will need to be tactical in order to survive.”
The developer goes on to state, “Our studio is focused on crafting a cinematic style, first-person story. This is no fast-paced shooter in which you just run, aim and shoot. Abandoned requires you to hide and plan every shot before pulling the trigger. We want you to be nervous come each and every enemy encounter. To be aware that a wrong move can be the deciding factor between surviving a combat scenario or not.”
While some of the comments aren’t the most positive based on the teaser, the announcement trailer doesn’t show enough yet to tell if this will be a winner or not.
