Fade to Silence was announced late last week by publisher THQ Nordic and developer Black Forest Games.
In the survival title, players will face an endless winter as Ash, described in a press release as “a natural leader who must battle eldritch monsters and the elements in a post-apocalyptic environment.”
“We have long sought to expand the THQ Nordic portfolio with a survival game that truly elevates the genre,” said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director, THQ Nordic. “Fade to Silence recreates the many dynamics of a harsh winter climate, delivering a new level of intensity to the survival experience. During the Early Access phase, the intense story of Fade to Silence will unfold, finally revealing what is behind the corruption the hero is fighting.”
“We are thrilled to not only be showing Fade to Silence to the public for the first time but to invite Steam players to play the game in Early Access beginning next week,” added Adrian Goersch, Managing Director, Black Forest Games.
“We intend to bring Steam players consistent and meaningful content updates throughout development, layering on new areas, followers, missions, monsters, and increasingly complex social events – events that demand moral decision-making on the part of the player. The team at Black Forest Games believes the Steam community will bring invaluable feedback to the final Fade to Silence experience.”
Fade to Silence is available in Steam Early Access from 14 December and planned for a full release on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 next year.
