Perception Announced for Xbox One
Today, developer The Deep End Games, a studio formed by ex BioShock and Dead Space developers, and publisher Feardemic, announced that first-person horror game Perception is coming to Xbox One, in addition to the previously announced PC and PS4.
For those that don’t know: Perception emerged onto the scene via Kickstarter (where it was very successful), announced only for PC. However, then Deep End Games announced that the game was also coming to PS4, and would launch simultaneously with the PC version. It is currently unclear if the Xbox One will launch simultaneously with the PS4 and PC Launch.
In case this is your first time hearing about Perception, here’s an overview of the game, from the developer itself:
Perception is a narrative-based first-person horror game where you play as Cassie, a blind woman whose nightmares about a haunted mansion have plagued her for months. She finally decides to go to the mansion to solve the mystery, but there’s more to this estate than she ever dreamed. She must use her wits, her smartphone, and her echolocation abilities to unravel the tortured history of the place and escape with her life.
Sound is a major element to playing Perception. Every sound becomes a visual cue for the player, whether it be a hissing pipe or an alarm clock going off at an inopportune time — the more sound you make while exploring Echo Bluff, the greater your chance of grabbing the attention of the malevolent force inside the house.
As you continue to play, you’ll travel back through the decades and see the house’s many iterations, along with the generations tormented by the forces at play. As Cassie solves each mystery, the house dwindles slowly toward its original form, to the beginning of its horrors.
Perception is set to release sometime this year, 2017.
