'Narcosis' (ALL) Comes To PS4 Next Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 17, 2018 @ 10:44 a.m. PDT

Narcosis is a survival story set at the sunless depths of the Pacific Ocean. Stranded after an accident with little light and few tools, an industrial diver takes desperate steps to surface before his oxygen — and sanity — give out.

Survival, horror at the sunless depths of the Pacific Ocean.

Narcosis is a first person survival story unfolds following an industrial catastrophe, from inside a half-ton, high-tech dive suit — a “walking coffin." Influenced and inspired by a growing appetite for unconventional horror and narrative-driven games, Narcosis is rooted in reality, but steeped in the surreal.

Featuring a haunting closing track by celebrated composer Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series), the game has enjoyed appearances at such illustrious events as IGF, IndieCade, and SXSW Interactive, as well as the Cinequest Film and VR, Strasbourg European Fantastic Film, and Busan Indie Connect festivals. 

Key Features:

  • Pressure Kills: High-stress situations accelerate oxygen intake, distorting sight, sound, space and time.
  • Hostile Waters: A knife, flashlight and flares are essential to surviving the nightmarish flora and fauna of the abyss.
  • Phantom Narrative: The survivor’s account unfolds in inexplicable ways alongside the player’s journey.
  • Beyond Good and Evil: No shadowy organizations or eldritch terrors, only primal fears and human limits.
  • Abyssal Ambience: A haunting soundtrack includes a closing theme from celebrated composer Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series)
  • Terror Verite: Primal fears — darkness, confinement and isolation — take on new levels of immersion when experienced in VR.

Already available on Xbox One and PC, Narcosis is coming to PS4 on July 24, 2018.
