You might as well dim the lights and start to prepare yourself right now – Perception is coming and it promises to take you on a bit of a horror adventure.
Due for arrival on May 30th 2017, Perception from Deep End Games and Feardemic will be hitting Xbox One, PS4 and PC. A first person psychological horror title, players will be placed into the shoes of Cassie, a blind woman who relies on who ultra sensitive hearing in order to try and solve an ancient mystery. Plagued by nightmares that lead her to a haunted New England estate, you, as Cassie, must use your wits to remain hidden and outmanoeuvre a malevolent force that threatens life.
Alongside the release date, a brand new trailer has emerged, showcasing the haunting singular experience you can expect to find when Perception hits home.
After months of research, Cassie has discovered an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, Mass. Armed with a cellphone to contact the outside world and her drive to solve the mystery, she sets off for Echo Bluff… only to find it’s worse than her nightmares. A ghostly “Presence” has tormented the house’ inhabitants for generations, and now has its eyes set on Cassie. She must solve the estate’s mysteries or risk becoming one of its victims.
Cassie finds her way through the house by tapping her cane to “see” via echolocation. Every sound creates a visual, but there is a cost. Each cane tap will reveal her whereabouts not only to herself, but to her pursuer, the Presence. She must avoid detection by using the ambient noise of the house to help her navigate or by making use of objects to create distractions.
Only one thing is certain: The Presence is searching for Cassie… and it’s listening.
Game features include:
- “See” using echolocation. Every sound creates a visual.
- Engage in a deadly game of hide and seek with relentless enemies, including The Presence.
- Trigger radical change at the Estate at Echo Bluff each time you solve its mysteries.
- Travel back through history to exorcise your own nightmares.
- Perception launches on Xbox One, PC and the PlayStation®4 computer system on May 30, 2017.
We’ll be sure to remind you when the time comes, but we advise finding a security blanket pretty pronto as Perception threatens to scare the living daylights out of you!
