We’ve been eyes on with Martha is Dead for some time, with first movement regarding the psychological thriller having first emerged in 2020. It was then when we expected the game to arrive in 2021 – yet now it’s been pushed to 2022. But hey, at least we now have a fully confirmed release date.
Coming from Wired Productions and the Italian team of LKA, Martha is Dead will launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC come February 24th 2021.
Sold as a psychological thriller, Martha Is Dead will combine real-world locations, working in links to historical events during the latter stages of World War II, superstition, folklore, and deep psychological distress. Powered by Unreal, the game opens in the depths of the Italian countryside as Allied and Axis forces turn the nation into a pincered playground.
This is shown off in Martha Is Dead’s latest trailer, as it teases Unreal’s revolutionary ‘Metahuman’ technology in an intimate and immersive showcase of the foreboding tension evident throughout the game. Meet the twins, Martha and Giulia, witness their special bond and get a glimpse of how dealing with the acute trauma of loss can affect a tortured mind.
“Martha Is Dead has been a long journey for us, but we’re now nearing the point where the whole world will get to play it,” offers Luca Dalco, Founder & Director, LKA. “this is an experience curated to be faithful and accurate to the era, from our authentic recreation of the Tuscan countryside through to the impact that WWII had on Italy. We can’t wait for people to experience the game for themselves.”
