Scorn Gameplay Shows Off Eight Minutes Of Prometheus-Esque Horror
Xbox Game Pass has a lot of treats in store for us across the rest of the year, but few of the games on the long list offer as much grim horror as Scorn.
The indie up-and-comer takes a lot of notes from the work of H.R. Giger, an artist whose work shows off a slimy and silvery merging of the biological and scientific. The result is an unnatural connection between man and machine, tangled up in nauseating collaboration of the natural and man-made.
Scorn makes the case for its further appearance in horror perfectly. And now, we have a new look at the way that the game plays, and it looks deliciously eerie.
What Does The New Scorn Gameplay Reveal
A new eight-minute video of the prologue for Scorn has been revealed, and it's just what we'd hoped it'd be - a Giger-inspired nightmare. Words barely do the footage justice, and it certainly speaks for itself. If you're sold on this homage to the Alien franchise and Giger's Xenomorphs, you can check out the footage yourself above.
The footage shows the player waking up in a grim, industrial, spaceship-looking intersection of tunnels, lined with fleshy materials and defined by dim lights. Wandering around the cavernous pathways reveals a twisting location with many secrets to hide. There's a revolting Prometheus-esque architecture and biomechanical system for opening doors.
When Is Scorn Coming Out?
The game looks brilliantly nasty, and thankfully, we won't have to wait too long before we can get our hands on the biopunk nightmare. Scorn is launching on October 21 2022, so don't even have to wait a month.
This promising horror title is coming to both the Xbox family of consoles and PC, as well as launching on the same day on Xbox Game Pass. Scorn looks like a truly special new IP that could rejuvenate the world of horror games on Game Pass - and we can't wait to get our fans all over the gross, sticky, spooktacular.
