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.
