The new first-person horror game by Deep End Games (made up of developers that worked on Bioshock) is set to launch on PC via Steam and GOG.com. The launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will have to be delayed for a week due to an “unexpected administrative snafu”, according to a Twitter post from the developers.
Perception is the upcoming horror game developed by Deep End Games, the studio formed by former Bioshock developers. In the game, you play as a blind woman called Cassie Thornton. You have to navigate your way through a Massachusetts mansion that’s haunted by an entity known only as “The Presence”. The only aids you’ll have on this journey are your hearing, smartphone and walking stick. The game is in first-person, and the only way for you to “see” what’s going on is through echolocation. Every sound that you hear or make illuminates part of your surroundings, making for both interesting gameplay and truly horrifying scares.
The game is scheduled to launch on May 30th, and so it will, at least for the PC. You’ll be able to grab it from either GOG.com or Steam. However, it seems that console players will have to stay patient for another week. In a recent Twitter post, Deep End Games has announced the delay of the console version, citing an “unexpected administrative snafu” as the reason. It seems that the developers have encountered some kind of administrative snag concerning ratings and territories. Whatever the reason is, the bottom line remains the same. Console owners will have to wait one more week. Hopefully, Perception will come out on the PS4 and Xbox One on June 6th.
Fortunately, it seems that Perception is worth the wait. If the trailers are anything to go by, the game will be a truly thrilling experience.
