Players can now get a glimpse of the horrors that lie in store, as Funcom releases the first gameplay video for the upcoming cosmic horror game Moons of Madness.
Stuck in a top-secret research facility on Mars, there is literally no escape from the horror that unfolds for player-character Shane Newehart when Moons of Madness releases on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One this Halloween. Described as “Lovecraft in space”, the cosmic horror game was well-received during its’ showcasing at E3 earlier this year. Now developer Rock Pocket Games and publisher Funcom grant players a further glimpse into what they can expect from the highly anticipated game.
In Moons of Madness you play Shane Newehart, a technician stationed at the Invictus, a secret research base built by the Orochi group. Your low security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of a mysterious, intelligent signal that has been detected on the red planet. Your job is simply to keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives bringing with it a new team to take over your duties. Soon you discover strange and unusual setbacks. Crucial systems are malfunctioning, the greenhouse is filled with a strange mist and the rest of your team have yet to return from their EVA mission. You begin seeing and hearing things that aren’t there. Visions, hallucinations – or is that even what it is? Is this real… or are you slowly descending into madness?
Watch the gameplay below:
Moons of Madness draws upon the rich lore and mythology of Funcom’s Secret World Legends. Both games exist in the same thematic universe, but playing one is not a prerequisite to enjoy the other.
The game will be released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 during the Halloween season 2019. For more information, please visit www.moonsofmadness.com.
