Vienna/AUSTRIA, Karlstad/SWEDEN, December 8, 2017: THQ Nordic today announced character-driven, survival game Fade to Silence. Currently in development for PC and Next Generation consoles at THQ Nordic studio Black Forest Games, Fade to Silence is launching on Steam Early Access on December 14, 2017 for 29.99 USD/EUR or 24.99 GBP.
“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,” said 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.”
In Fade to Silence, players survive as Ash, a natural leader who must battle eldritch monsters and the elements in a post-apocalyptic environment blanketed in #EndlessWinter. Early Access launch will introduce players to the concept of simple mission as full expedition, whether collecting materials, upgrading equipment, building your camp or defeating horrific supernatural creatures, players will continually struggle to navigate dynamic, accumulating snow, real-time snow trails, and completely immersive weather effects such as blizzards.
Players who join Early Access now will receive a limited time, 10% discount on the Fade to Silence experience.
