Psychological Norwegian Horror Game Draugen Will Finally Get A Reveal Trailer This Week

Published

 on

The developer of Dreamfall Chapters, Red Thread Games, is just about ready to reveal its psychological horror game, Draugen, which was announced over four years ago.

The game is “a first-person, single-player psychological Fjord Noir mystery set in 1920s Norway.”

Here’s a story synopsis from the title’s newly updated website:

It’s October. We’re on the threshold of winter. Edward Charles Harden has just arrived in the remote coastal community of Graavik after a long ocean journey from Boston, USA. Accompanied by his ward Alice, Edward is following the trail of his missing sister.

Over the next six days, trapped in this godforsaken corner of a foreign land, framed by deep fjords and tall mountains, Edward and Alice will search for the missing woman…and unravel a mystery going back decades.

Made in Norway, Draugen blends Norse mythology with gothic suspense and existential horror into a unique and haunting Fjord Noir experience.

The trailer for the game, which will be airing later this week, was already shown to attendees of AdventureX last week and people seemed quite fascinated by it.

Draugen is scheduled to arrive on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in 2019. If you missed the original reveal trailer from 2014, check it out at the bottom of the article.

We’ll make sure to have the trailer up here as soon as it becomes available, so don’t forget to follow OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
