Later that year, Abandoned comes exclusively to the Playstation 5. While details on the game are incredibly slim at the moment, a trailer for the survival game was unveiled today. It’s a trailer in the truest sense of the word, because it’s really, really hard to extrapolate a lot of anything, but we’ll give it a try anyway! Before continuing, watch the trailer below!
Netherlands-based studio Blue Box Game Studios is creating Abandoned, which centers around a character who has apparently been abandoned. It’s always nice to have a title that syncs with the content, right? The game is described as a cinematic first-person survival shooter, which could mean a lot. Based on the trailer containing a campfire and dangerous wilderness, it’s entirely possible that this centers around a “core” survival game experience that tasks the player with maintaining heat levels. , manage thirst and hunger meters, and possibly repel bears, wolves, or other dangerous woody creatures. And supernatural stuff, too, maybe.
As Jason Longfield, you wake up in a strange forest, kidnapped and left there for a “dark purpose”. The goal is survival. Simple, right? The dev team is aiming for realism with mundane interactions, so apparently the weapons will be very slow (no Call of Duty exploding here) and will be influenced by fear and effort. Ammo is probably a valuable resource, and there’s a strong implication that you’ll have to let your enemies down to come out on top.
Abandoned is designed to get the most out of the DualSense controller, until the gun trigger feels different when loaded or empty. Abandoned is also aiming for 60 FPS and 4k resolution. The trailer looks very cinematic, but it really doesn’t give us any idea what the gameplay is going to look or feel like. At this point in the trailer, it’s cool, but you definitely need to see more. A full gameplay video is coming “soon” which should give us a better indicator of what to expect here.
Abandoned is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of this year. You can read more on the official blog here.
