Hankering for some good ol’ fashioned survival horror? Then indie developer Brok3nsite may have the blood-stained ticket for you. Launching on PS4 this February 3rd, Dawn Of Fear looks set to resurrect the tried-and-tested horror sub-genre of yesteryear. Those familiar with old-school horror titles, like Resident Evil and Silent Hill, may want to tune in their static-filled radios for this one.
That’s right, all the usual survival horror motifs are present here: Static third-person cameras, inventory management, a focus on puzzles, a tense atmosphere, shambling zombies, and some jump-out-of-your-skin scares are all here in full force. If you fancy a taster, you can check out the new announcement trailer below:
Here’s a rundown of the plot of Dawn Of Fear courtesy of developer Brok3nsite:
Dawn of fear tells the story of Alex, a young man with a past marked by tragedy. His mother died when she gave birth to him. His father carries on with his life and marry again. After some time, Max is born and become Alex’s stepbrother. One day returning from Max’s training they suffer a car accident. Alex, Max and their father were traveling in the car, and only Alex survived the accident. After a time of mourning. Alex manages to rebuild his life but his stepmother does not and ends up in a psychiatric hospital.
Three years later he receives a letter saying that his stepmother has died and decides to return to the family home to pick up his things.
When he arrives there, he does not find his childhood home but a world of madness and cruelty from which he does not know if he will be able to run away.
In order to help Alex to survive you shall have to use logic to solve the puzzles, manage your ammo in order not to get helpless and keep your cold blood to avoid being dragged by the horror that permeates the house.
