Inspired by the likes of Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and Alone in the Dark, Tormented Souls promises a “modern take” on classic survival horror when it releases later this year. Initially announced for Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC back in August 2020, publisher PQube has today confirmed that the game will now be coming to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 instead.
Rather than having a fixed camera like Resident Evil, Tormented Souls will feature a camera that follows protagonist Caroline Walker around, as she finds herself lured to the small town of Winterlake by unknown forces. Soon, she'll find herself searching for answers and a way out, ultimately fighting for her life, having awoken naked in a bathtub, hooked up to old medical equipment.
Finding herself in an old mansion turned hospital, Caroline will have puzzles to solve, resources to manage, dark creatures to face, and another place and time to explore via mirrors. Promising to take advantaged of next-gen hardware to provide “power and depth” to the experience, Tormented Souls will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC later in 2021.
