Slender: The arrival set to launch on Xbox 360, PS3 Soon



If you enjoyed Slender: The arrival in PC, the horror game Blue Isle Studios based on Slender Parsec Productions, then you're probably not as excited to know that the game is set to arrive on the Xbox 360 and PS3 on 23 September 24th. Still, if you have a PC that can run the game, you are probably very excited.

A press release apparently seeped between Midnight City, the new independent publisher that focuses on small and mid-budget indie games, offering the opportunity to get their games to the public. They have also been behind recent titles like Krautscape.

I like what Midnight City is aiming to make within the gaming industry and it is good to see a publisher put and pick stocks with potential sleeper-hit and take them home consoles state.

As discovered by Hardcore Gamer, the release date for Slender: The arrival did not come alone. A new trailer was also reduced, which can be checked below.

 

The game will take on a completely new story based on the creative work of the team behind Marble Hornets. The game will have levels, new story elements and all the horror of the mythos tension mounted Slender Man has been known to promote widespread.

Curiously, the game has only rated "T" for Teen. Usually horror titles suspense or get 'M' for Mature rating. So what we are seeing here is a game that is based on the typical bucket full of language or lack of blood to carry content.

I thought it was pretty neat that a number of horror titles following along this line using this kind of method - a method relying on the atmosphere and the progressive tension rather than the typical jump-scares most other parties.

One of the reasons why the games have been thin so scary for some people is that you can not really know what will happen; games take place in open environments and there is a nonlinear element for horror. The concept of the game revolves around players trying to find and gather documents, keys, while trying to avoid the gaze of the Slender Man.

No weapons and no way to fight Slender Man, so players basically have to move cautiously in their attempt to advance through levels. I can easily say it is one of the scariest games out there.

I'm curious how well Slender: The arrival will be sold on the Xbox 360 and PS3 after already having been out on Steam since last year. Still, there are not many games on consoles like Slender: The Arrival and I suspect you can gather your own remarkable track once it releases.

You will be able to pick up a copy of the game, digitally, for the PS3 on September 23 and the Xbox 360 from September 24.
