Horror Without the Jumpscares
Prepare to enter a nightmarish forest. By day, gather what you need to survive. By night, hide away from the terrifying creatures that are out for your blood. Today Acid Wizard Studio and Crunching Koalas are happy to announce that their atmospheric horror game, Darkwood, has launched on PS5. Arriving as the enhanced version of the game, Darkwood on the PS5 is boasting a host of new features to look forward too. A press release delves into all the dark details. Additionally, the PS5 launch trailer gives players a glimpse of this new version of the game.
Darkwood introduces players to the dark and eerie forests of the Soviet Bloc. They will attempt to survive by fortifying their hideout, scavenging for supplies, preparing traps, and importantly, crafting weapons. You aren’t alone out in these woods. Of course, at night in the darkness, terrifying monsters emerge hunting you. Importantly the forest, and events therein, are procedurally generated. This means every player will experience the game differently.
The enhanced version of the game is bringing a ton to look forward too. For instance players can expect native 4K resolution, interactive, features of the DualSense controller and more. Of course players can get a look at a few of these features in the PS5 launch trailer. Check it out below.
Darkwood is available today on PS5. Currently the game costs $17.99. So, are you ready to face the darkness growing in the forest? Will you survive the night? Find out.
