Retro Survival Horror Game Tormented Souls Gets New Trailer; Coming Later This Month to Consoles & PC

Every once in a while a horror game sneaks its way onto the scene with little to no fanfare, and the latest title to do exactly this is Tormented Souls.

Developed in tandem by two indie studios, Dual Effect and Abstract Digital, and published by UK-based company, PQube, Tormented Souls is an old-school, fixed-camera survival horror experience inspired by the original Resident Evil and Alone In The Dark games.

Today, we not only got a new cinematic trailer showcasing the horror title in action, but we also received a concrete release date, too. Specifically, Tormented Souls will be launching on 27 August across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam for a retail price of $19.99/£16.99. Go ahead and feast your eyes on the eerie new cinematic trailer down below:

Clearly, classic survival horror seems to be the order of the day. Creepy fixed camera angles, shadowy corridors and gothic imagery suggest Tormented Souls may well be a scary time worth keeping an eye on. One thing’s for sure: Those monster designs are pretty awesome (read: horrible), which is always a good thing, right?

If you’re really itching to play it as soon as possible, EU and UK PlayStation fans can play a free demo of the title right now by clicking through here. (H/T, Push Square)

Interestingly, the game is also scheduled to be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in the future, but there’s no confirmed release date as of yet.

For more information on the game, here’s a rundown courtesy of Tormented Soul’s latest press release:

Lead to the small, isolated town of Winterlake, something terrible happens to Caroline Walker – waking in the dead of night, naked and alone, hooked up to decrepit medical equipment.As the previous inhabitants run amok, you must scavenge essential resources and tools to decipher clues and create a variety of weapons to protect yourself from the darkness within.  

Nothing is quite as it seems in Winterlake. Cleverly combine items and scour your surroundings for clues as you face cryptic and unusual puzzles through-out the grounds of the mansion.
Mirrors provide a gateway to another place and time – investigate even the seemingly mundane t discover ways to manipulate the very fabric of reality and seek your escape.

The mansion may seem stark and abandoned, but the deeper you venture, the more overwhelming the horrors within become.

From terrifying, wheelchair-bound atrocities to vile disembowelled crawlers prowling the halls, these tormented medical monsters aren’t the only threats that Caroline must face. There are also darker threats at play – quite literally. Early on, you are warned not to let the shadows embrace you…
