It’s perhaps a bit unusual to announce a new horror game in the run-up to Halloween rather than release one, but that’s exactly what Headup and Cracked Heads Games are doing with Silver Chains.
Developed using Unreal Engine 4, Silver Chains is a first-person horror game that puts story and exploration at the forefront. Finding yourself in an abandoned mansion after having a car accident, it’ll be up to you to search for clues as to why you’re there.
While the photo-realistic graphics combined with an eerie soundtrack will do their best to put you on edge, there’s also an evil presence in the mansion that will put you in peril. You’ll need to run and hide if you wish to survive long enough to uncover the mansion’s secrets.
Silver Chains is set to arrive on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC in Spring 2019. Watch the announcement trailer below to get a taste of what’s to come. Hopefully the game will indeed scare us silly when it releases next year.
