Good morning all! I’m Hasan Kahraman from Blue Box Game Studios based in the Netherlands. The team and I are working on our new title, which will arrive exclusively on PS5 this year, and I can’t wait to show off some gameplay footage of the game in action. However, since the game is at an early stage of development, I wanted to announce the game today and show a little announcement teaser that we made.
Abandoned is a first-person horror cinematic survival shooter set in a highly detailed open world environment and emphasizes a realistic approach to survival.
The story centers on Jason Longfield, who wakes up in a strange forest. Abandoned and not remembering how he got there, Jason soon discovers that he has been kidnapped and brought there for a dark purpose. To fight for his survival, his main objective is to escape.
Realistic character interaction
We want to provide a unique personal gaming experience that feels realistic. Each event has an influence on your character. If Jason is out of breath after the sprint (or is scared), his shooting accuracy will suffer. Unlike action shooting titles, gunfire in Abandoned will be really slow. You will have to be tactical to survive.
Our studio is focused on creating a cinematic style, a first person story. It’s not a fast paced shooter where you just run, aim and shoot. Dropped out forces you to hide and plan each shot before you pull the trigger. We want you to be nervous about every enemy encounter. Be aware that a wrong move can be the deciding factor between or not surviving a combat scenario.
Immersion with DualSense wireless controller and 3D audio
We wanted to emphasize realism through user immersion. This wouldn’t be possible without the DualSense wireless controller. Players will feel every interaction during the game, like being hit by a ball. Squeezing the trigger on a loaded or unloaded pistol will be different. Likewise, 3D audio will help shape your decisions and tactics, using the precise positioning of shots in nature to help you decide on your next move.
The power of the PS5
Our team is still unraveling the power of the PS5, but we’ve made incredible progress so far. The console allows us to process high quality motion capture, all running at 60 FPS and rendered at native 4K resolution. We ensure that the environmental quality is as close as possible to reality. All in all, the result is realistic graphics, smooth character animations, and minimal loading screens.
Announcement teaser and release window
While we don’t want to go over full gameplay details just yet, a full gameplay video will be available soon! We couldn’t wait to give you a taste of what to expect, so we hope you enjoy this taste.
Abandoned will be available exclusively on PS5 Q4 2021.
