The Inpatient – the prequel to Supermassive’s slasher Until Dawn – has a release date. The PlayStation VR horror game will hit Sony’s console later this year, on November 22.
Here’s the description, from the store page:
Discover true fear at the abandoned Blackwood Pines Sanatorium.
Awaken into a living nightmare as a patient with no memory of who you are – in a spine-chilling mystery set 60 years before the events of PS4™ hit Until Dawn.
Live the horror through the immersion of VR as deep, personal fears, psychological terror and heart-shredding jump scares wait in the darkness.
Explore with simple VR controls, hear every creak, bang and scream with true 3D audio, and talk to characters through innovative voice recognition.
Wrestle with moral dilemmas and decide who to trust, but beware… you don’t know what’s around the next corner and your choices will have consequences.
The game also promises to have multiple endings based on players’ decisions.
This isn’t the first Until Dawn virtual reality title. Last year saw the release of on-rails shooter Rush of Blood. Reviewer Bronwyn James felt the game toned down on the jump-scares and gore of the source material, but praised its replayability.
The Inpatient comes to PlayStation 4 exclusively on November 22.
