Funcom has revealed a new trailer and release window for the cosmic horror title Moons of Madness.

Developed by Rock Pocket Games, Moons of Madness will launch during the Halloween season for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Players control Shane Newehart, a technician at a secret base on Mars who soon discovers strange occurrences in the station—crucial systems begin to malfunction, hallucinations begin to occur, and the team has not returned from their mission. Players must discover what is going on. Check out the new announcement trailer below.

Norwegian developer Rock Pocket Games originally revealed an in-development prototype version of Moons of Madness in 2016 and announced that the game would launch in 2018. After Funcom entered development, the game’s concept was expanded and the release delayed.

“With Funcom’s support, we have been given the opportunity to do all the things we wanted to do with the game and the story,” said Rock Pocket CEO Ivan Moen in a press release. “Moons of Madness has been an internal passion project of ours […] and now being able to fully focus on it and put all our creative energy into it is a dream come true.”

The game is inspired by the mythology and lore of Secret World Legends, another Funcom title. The publisher has stated that both games exist within the same thematic universe, but the stories remain independent of one another.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over six years with no means of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Cyberpunk 2077 Will Have Witcher-like Expansions

Published

CD Projekt Red’s UI Coordinator, Alvin Liu, spoke with Prima Games about the future of Cyberpunk 2077 and the possibility of post-launch expansions.

During E3 2019, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, Red Marcin Iwiński, briefly touched upon the existence of DLC plans for Cyberpunk 2077 by disclosing the project’s roadmap. Liu, however, now confirms that there are talks happening within the company about expansions despite the main focus still revolving around the base game. Liu also promises that Cyberpunk 2077 will have a satisfying conclusion that resolves the conflicts presented within the story and that nothing is being intentionally withheld in order to add it as DLC later.

“We want to make sure everything’s complete, but we also want to build open worlds. I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to,” Liu said. “I think we’re going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077.”

Liu explains that the expansions for The Witcher 3 helped flush out the open world by focusing on secondary characters from both the books and previous games. In terms of scale, the second and final expansion for The Witcher 3 was as big as the entirety of The Witcher 2, so the possible scope for Cyberpunk 2077‘s post-game content is limitless.
