Survival horror, eh? The thrills, the spills, the intrigue of the adventure? You’re getting all that in The Beast Inside as it releases on Xbox and PlayStation.
Available right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S (fully optimised), and PS5, The Beast Inside breaks out of the PC gamingscape to deliver some new survival horror vibes to console.
It comes about via the Illusion Ray Studio team, immersing players into a world full of secrets, or tragedy and, most importantly, of madness. But don’t expect this to provide your standard everyday genre offering, for The Beast Inside sees you playing through the lives of two very different protagonists.
Initially focusing on a CIA cryptanalyst, Adam, its here where you’ll find yourself moving from the bright lights of the city to the sleep countryside. But the house he moves into is one full of secrets, most notably a diary written by one Nicolas Hyde; a house resident from back in the 19th Century. It’s here where the two lives come together – but not always for the better.
Priced up at £20.99 from the Xbox Store, The Beast Inside (Console Version) – to give the full name – will have you attempting to unravel the past, trying to work out how Nicolas and Adam are linked. Promising a ton of intensity, plenty of nightmare and two stories that intertwine, this is one you won’t want to miss if you’re a sucker for survival horror.
You’ll find the download of The Beast Inside over at the Xbox Store, playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. There’s full optimised for those newer consoles. It’s also on PlayStation (PS5 only for now we believe) along with Steam for PC. It’s found itself with some seriously decent reviews in the three years The Beast Inside has been on Steam.
Keep an eye out for a review soon.
The Beast Inside is a unique, gripping twist on thriller and survival horror. The game mixes intriguing story-driven adventure with an unnerving survival horror experience. Immerse in the tale of long-buried secrets, personal tragedies, and madness. Play as two protagonists living in different centuries but bounded by dark heritage. Boston, 1979, Adam, the CIA cryptanalyst, leaves the city and moves to the countryside with his wife, Emma. His handlers are afraid they won’t be able to keep him safe there, but Adam believes he needs a peaceful place in the woodland, to take a shot at the military code. His work may alter the course of the Cold War. As it turns out, this area is quite the opposite of a peaceful place they have expected… In the attic Adam finds a mysterious diary written by a man called Nicolas Hyde, allegedly, a past resident of the same house who lived there in the 19th Century. Once opened, the diary carries the nightmares of the past right into Adam’s times, putting the lives of Adam and Emma in great danger. Intensity increases as these two stories come to an inevitable crash. Distant past and his eternal prisoner – Nicolas against Adam, cryptanalyst from the Cold War. What can it lead to? In tangled times, who will you trust?
