Old school horror in another creepy mansion
PQube, Dual Effect, and Abstract Digital Works are marking the release of Tormented Souls on PS5 and Steam today with a brand new launch trailer.
What about Tormented Souls for PS4 and Xbox? Those versions, as well as a Nintendo Switch edition, are due to release “soon” according to the publisher.
For now, Tormented Souls is only on PS5 and PC, so if you want old-school scares inspired by Resident Evil and Silent Hill, your options are limited.
I’m still working my way through the game for Pure PlayStation‘s Tormented Souls PS5 review, so be on the lookout for my thoughts on the game this weekend. In the mean time, try not to cry watching the trailer below.
- Welcome to Winterlake – 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, Caroline must fight for her life as she
explores the halls of the abandoned mansion. As the previous inhabitants run amuck,
players must scavenge essential resources and tools to decipher clues and create a
variety of weapons to protect themselves from the darkness within.
- Keep Your Wits About You – Nothing is quite as it seems in Winterlake. Cleverly
combine items and scour the mansion for clues as players face cryptic and unusual
puzzles throughout the grounds of the mansion. Mirrors provide a gateway to another
place and time – investigate even the seemingly mundane to discover ways to
manipulate the very fabric of reality and seek your escape.
- You are Never Alone in the Dark – 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…
