Read details on the game below:

Scorn is an atmospheric first-person horror adventure game set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry.

It is designed around the idea of “being thrown into the world”. Isolated and lost inside this dream-like world, you will explore different interconnected regions in a non-linear fashion. The unsettling environment is a character itself.

Every location contains its own theme (story), puzzles and characters that are integral in creating a cohesive world. Throughout the game you will open up new areas, acquire different skill sets, weapons, various items and try to comprehend the sights presented to you.

Cohesive “Lived-In” World

Scorn takes place in an open-ended world with different interconnected regions. Each region is a maze-like structure with various rooms and paths to discover. All the storytelling happens in-game, with no cut-scenes to distract you from the grisly reality of the living, breathing world you’re in. But keep your eyes open—the game won’t show you any sympathy if you miss something important on your uneasy travels. Everything has a reason and purpose – you just need to work out what it is.

Full Body Awareness

Players will experience better immersion being aware of the character’s body and movement. Interaction with the world is realistic – objects are picked up with your hands (instead of just floating in midair), machines and instruments are operated by grabbing the controls etc.

Inventory and Ammo Management

Is defined and limited. It plays a big role in keeping the player in an even greater state of awareness throughout the whole game. Players will have to think about when to fight and when to take cover and how their actions affect the world around them. Different play styles will be needed to advance.

Scorn will launch for Xbox Series X|S, PC via Steam, and Xbox Game Pass on October 21.

Can't really say much cause not much was happening. Wish I got to see more of the action gameplay. I assume there is some sort of action game play in this anyways.

I read another reviewer telling everyone to set expectations. He described it as an "atmospheric horror-themed puzzle game." And that if you're expecting something else, you may be setting yourself up for failure.

There definitely is some action, but I'm guessing even less than what you would get in Resident Evil?

Oh I see. Slightly disappointed since this was giving me Prey (2006) vibes. Puzzle game could work to though especially since the world looks so interesting. Guess will just have to see how it is.

There's no set story. U have to explore the world and find items that contains story and u got to find them all and piece the story together. Much like how elden ring and dark souls work
