90S SURVIVAL HORROR THROWBACK “SONG OF HORROR” RETURNS ON JANUARY 30TH WITH EPISODE 4
Having spent the last few months of 2019 scaring scores of survival-horror fans into a stupor – and picking up accolades and awards in the process – Song of Horror is set for an alarmingly awesome 2020, with the fourth and penultimate chapter launching on Thursday 30th January.
In an era where first-person, jumpscare based horror games are the norm, Song of Horror brings back the atmosphere of classic horror games like Alone in the Dark, Resident Evil, and Silent Hill – all of which made me cry. While the settings may seem familiar, what players won’t expect is the unfathomable entity known as The Presence, who adapts and reacts to the way they play – and I’m not playing this game, nah too scary.
Lose against this unpredictable adversary, and the character will die permanently. As fans progress through each new episode, the tension to lose more characters increases, creating an unbearable atmosphere that never dissipates.
The fourth (and biggest) episode of Song of Horror, The Last Concert, continues its nostalgic journey through the classics of the genre. This time, it takes inspiration from Frictional Games’ celebrated modern horror adventure Amnesia: The Dark Descent, bringing players to the most haunted area of the game: St. Cecilia’s Abbey. How many characters will survive this holy place, now tainted by the influence of The Presence?
The first episode of Song of Horror can be picked up on Steam today for $7.99/€7.99/£6.99, while the second and third and fourth can either be purchased individually for $7.99/€7.99/£6.99, or as part of the Season Pass that will also unlock the final episode at launch for $21.99/€21.99/£18.99.
