The dual reality horror game The way is finally close to launch after several years of work and a last minute delay, but how does it feel to play? You no longer need to consult short extracts to find out. The Bloober team has released 14 minute gameplay from Xbox Series X and S a console exclusive that shows how you’ll juggle the real and the spiritual worlds.
As you can guess, it gets complicated when you’re playing in one realm or the other, or even both at the same time. For example, Marianne may see a spiritual passage that she cannot walk through in the real world and may need an out-of-body experience to overcome. The gameplay is also varied, with touches of puzzle solving, stealth, and basic survival. And yes, the horror atmosphere is thick – there are a lot of ghosts of scary children and abandoned buildings.
