Darkwood – a new perspective on survival horror. Scavenge and explore a rich, ever-changing free-roam world by day, then hunker down in your hideout and pray for the morning light. It’s a very popular top-down survival horror game by Acid Wizard Studio Released in 2017 on Steam for PC, Mac, Linux (Ubuntu) and recently announced for Nintendo Switch (May 16, 2019 release date). For PS4 the release date is 14th of May according to the latest release trailer!
Along with the Trailer, the following information was provided by PlayStation:-
Darkwood is a challenging survival horror that does not rely on jump scares. Coming to PS4 on May 14th.
Craft weapons, prepare traps, fortify hideouts – you will explore and scavenge the eerie forests of the Soviet Bloc by day, then hunker down in your hideout at night. With nightmarish forces corrupting the woods, wait and pray for the sun to come up the next morning.
Wade through the grueling, bizarre world of Darkwood and delve into the creepiest secrets of its inhabitants to escape the infested land before it destroys your body and consumes your mind.
No hand holding or linear paths. Think, learn and adapt – if you will behave recklessly or do not prepare for the night, you will not survive.
CHOICES & CONSEQUENCES
Each choice you make is permanent, and will have impact on you, or Darkwood’s inhabitants. Every time you play, you will see a different story unfold.
A breathing, procedurally generated world for you to explore. Each visit to Darkwood is unique, as all locations and events are randomized.
PERKS AND ABILITIES
Improve your character with skills that will give you advantage over your enemies.
A flexible crafting system which lets you experiment with loot to: create items, build barricades or traps, and improve your gear with addons.
You will start to question your sanity, as the line between reality and nightmarish fantasies will begin to blur.
Some Reviews by the Critics for the PC, Mac, & Linux version:-
“Darkwood is a promising top-down horror roguelike that has cult classic written all over it.”
Jeffrey Matulef, Eurogamer
“Darkwood has an astonishing atmosphere. Tension. It’s an unnerving experience. Anguish. Those shrieks. That dog.”
Adam Smith, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
“I gauge the scariness of horror games using my patented Curl Chance™ system, which measures how likely I am to curl into a ball of whimpering fear when I play them. I rate the new trailer for Darkwood, an upcoming top-down survival horror title from indie group Acid Wizard Studio, a “Mommy” out of 10 based on the inky shadows and surreal sense of unease.”
Omri Petitte, PC Gamer
