Today, players can head into The Park
on Xbox One.
The short-but-not-sweet horror title will take its heroine Lorraine on a quest to find her son -- and keep her sanity -- in the decidedly sinister looking Atlantic Island Park.
Funcom cite several examples from the indie "walking simulator" scene as inspirations, meaning that the focus is on exploration, narrative... and freaking us out at least a little bit.
The game is set in the same universe as the PC-only MMO The Secret World
- whilst there are no plans for the MMO itself to come to consoles, this is an intriguing cross-platform experiment. With Funcom gearing to make a comeback to consoles after a long hiatus, perhaps there will be similar forays into The Secret World
in the future?
