Today, Sony and developer Blue Box Game Studios showed off a new, cinematic, first-person horror survival shooter with a realistic, eerie vibe. It’s called Abandoned, and it’s being made exclusively for the PS5. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/04/07/abandoned-announcement-teaser-trailer”] In a blog post, game director Hasan Kahraman showed off the above first look at Abandoned, noting that it’s still in early development and subject to change. Abandoned follows the story of Jason Longfield, who wakes up in a forest alone with no clue how he got there. As he attempts to find his way out, he uncovers a sinister purpose behind his being brought to the forest, and must fight his way to safety. Blue Box promises that Abandoned will focus on realism, and not just the visuals. If Jason runs out of breath from sprinting, it will be harder to shoot accurately. And firing weapons will be “realistically slow,” using the DualShock’s technology to add a level of realistic feel to pulling a gun trigger or being hit by a bullet. It uses 3D audio, too, which it says will help players accurately know when and where to fire their gun. Abandoned is planned for the end of this year, and Blue Box says it’s already running at 60 fps and 4K resolution. A full gameplay video is planned for release soon. Blue Box has made a few attempts at haunting realism in the past. In 2015 it had a title on Steam Greenlight called Rewind: Voices of the Past about a young woman who could see and communicate with dead people, though it never left Greenlight. It is also the studio behind The Haunting: Blood Water Curse, which is now in early access on Steam — though the game has since been acquired by a different studio, Createq Interactive. Abandoned joins a number of other upcoming titles planned for the PS5’s 2021 roster of exclusives, including Returnal later this month, Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart in June, Horizon Forbidden West, and Destruction AllStars out now, which we found fun in small bursts but otherwise shallow.
