Developers Funcom have announced that their psychological horror title The Park will hit the Playstation 4 and Xbox One on May 3rd 2016. If you’ve not seen the game in action you can check out the original PC launch trailer below:
Set in a creepy amusement park hiding a dark and sinister secret, The Park is a one to two hour long first-person psychological horror experience focusing on intense storytelling and exploration instead of combat and action.
A day at the park… a lost teddy bear… a missing child. As the sun sets over Atlantic Island Park, you must explore its dilapidated rides in search of your son, Callum. As darkness falls, you will experience panic and paranoia through a narrative written by a team of award winning storytellers.
Amusement parks are happy places, filled with the joys of childhood and the exhilarating rush of fantastic rides to be dared. That was the vision of eccentric business man Nathaniel Winter when he opened the doors to Atlantic Island Park in 1977.
Unfortunately, the park’s history turned out to be one plagued by tragedy and drama. Its freak accidents, grotesque killings and ghostly hauntings have inspired many a sensational headline, and locals worry the park is far from done claiming innocent lives.
For Lorraine, it’s where her worst nightmare began.
The Park originally hit the PC back in October last year and has received generally positive responses from horror fans. I missed out on it the first time around, so I’m looking forward to getting the chance to check out the horrifying park…
The Park releases on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One on May 3rd 2016. PC gamers can grab it now on Steam by clicking this link.
