Independent game design team Blue Isle Studios announced today that the survival horrorSlender: The Arrival is coming on March 24 to PlayStation®4, the computer entertainment system, and on March 25 to Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program. The official video game adaptation of the internet phenomenon, Slender: The Arrival will send the most fearless gamers into panic as they unfold the twisted mystery in a dark, foreboding atmosphere and a story fraught with terror, paranoia and other-worldly forces.
Based on eye-witness accounts, The Slender Man is depicted as a thin, unnaturally tall man dressed in a black suit with a blank, featureless face. Now Slender: The Arrival comes to next-gen consoles with brand new story elements and extended levels that continue to unfold the Slender Man mythos. Players are enveloped in a world of sensory deprivation filled with haunting visions and audio cues that create a healthy dose of tension and paranoia.
In The Arrival’s all new storyline, Lauren is in search of her friend Kate, who recently has become increasingly obsessed with the folklore of Slender Man. Was Kate’s disappearance the work of Slender Man? Use Kate’s forgotten flashlight to explore abandoned houses, creepy mines and dark forests to unravel the mystery – all the while being stalked by the menacing presence of Slender Man.
Developed in collaboration with Eric “Victor Surge” Knudson, creator of the paranormal phenomenon, and written by the creative team behind the Marble Hornets series, Slender: The Arrival is rated ‘T’ for Teen (Blood, Violence) and will release for $9.99 digital download on March 24 for PlayStation®4 and March 25 in the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One.
I love survival horror games. I had heard of this game for a while now and I admit that I have been wanting to play it ever since I heard about it.
I kept hearing how scary this will be and I am one who don't really get scared easily when I play horror games or when watching horror movies so I was skeptical. As soon as this games was done downloading on my PS4 i couldn't wait to play and I wanted the full "scare" effect so I made sure I had my headphones on and the lights were turned off.
Slender:The Arrival has decent graphics . The audio is fantastic especially if you were headphones while you play this game.
It isn't the best survival horror game I have played but it isn't the worst either. It isn't the scariest either but like I said before it does take me a lot to scare me when it comes to video games and movies but I know a few people who have played it and said it is scary.
I give this 3 1/2 out of 5
If you want to purchase this game it is now available on PS4 and Xbox One.
