First person sci-fi mystery, The Station, gets Xbox One, PS4, PC release date

-

Heading off to faraway planets is nothing new in gaming terms, but with a team of AAA veterans behind it, chances are The Station is going to be a first person sci-fi mystery that is well worth keeping an eye on.

Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC come Feb 20th 2018 for £14.99/$14.99, The Station will whisk you off to a distant future – one in which you’ll be tasked with solving puzzles and utilising an in-game Augmented Reality interface, in order to discover the truth behind the disappearance of a research crew.

Created and developed by a team of videogaming veterans, including Dave Fracchia, former Studio Head at Activision subsidiary Radical Entertainment, the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning designer Les Nelkin, and BioShock Infinite and League of Legends composer Duncan Watt, The Station will take you across the universe and aboard a spacecraft orbiting a vicious alien world.

You see, when communications with a small research crew are disrupted, it’ll be up to you to head on out and investigate the mysterious circumstances onboard the Espial Space Station. Upon arrival though, you’ll find that much of the Espial is without power – and the crew have mysteriously vanished. You’ll be left to restore the power and take in the digital logs of the missing team, all whilst dealing with the tension of whatever happened to the crew occurring once more.

Navigating the sleek facility brings a “Progressive Sci-Fi” style, evoking an optimistic view of space exploration while the contemporary ambient soundtrack elicits isolating and unnerving emotions. The team behind The Station have strived to provide a new benchmark for atmospheric narratives.

“Our goal is to challenge what people expect from atmospheric mysteries,” said Dave Fracchia, Executive Producer, The Station. “By abandoning player-driven dialogue we are able to replicate the emptiness and loneliness of space, while still enthralling with a pressure-packed mystery.”

Make sure you check out the trailer below. We’ll be sure to remind you when that Feb 20th release date arrives.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
