After its successful release on PC, the award-winning third-person Norse horror adventure, Through the Woods is coming to Xbox One and PS4.
It will be released for Xbox One and Playstation 4 on 2nd May and 8th May 2018 respectively. Named as being “one of the most anticipated horror games” by IGN and “one of this year’s best horror games” by CG Magazine, Through the Woods is bound to live up to its reputation on the consoles.
Following a desperate mother in the search for her kidnapped son, Through the Woods immerses the player in the mysterious dark atmosphere of a deep forest, lit only by the moon and the cone of one’s flashlight. The forest lives a different life at night, with mythological creatures roaming the woods, making every encounter potentially a deadly one. The biggest element of fear is the unknown. It seemingly materializes from the darkness. Unidentifiable sounds penetrate the silence and the occasional hint of movement may be spotted in the shadows.
In a deeply personal narrative, the mother’s relationship with her son is gradually revealed, as she realizes what perils her young son might be facing and what is at stake. All that matters to her is finding her son and making sure he is safe. Deep in the dark woods, on her own, with many obstacles to tackle, she fights not only with the forest and its creatures, but also with demons from the past buried deep inside.
