Is space horror its own genre yet? If not, games like Syndrome are helping to push the classification, and we are happy to have another game in the soon-to-be-official category.
The story starts with you waking up from cryosleep on the pioneer ship, the Valkenburg. As you might have guessed, things are not going well. There are monsters trying to kill you, and the ship is off course. While trying your best not to be a splatter on the wall, you need to find out why and how everything went to space hell in a handbasket while you were napping.
The trailer gives you a good idea of how the survival horror game will play when it releases on the PS4 early next year. Billing itself as more stealth than shoot-out, it could be a welcome return for old school fans. For more info, check out the official site here.
If this appeals to you, let us know your favorite space horror movies in the comments. To get you started, check out Event Horizon for horror and Pandorum for something a little closer to Syndrome.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
