Sci-fi Survival Horror Game, Syndrome, Will Release This October

Published

 on

Developer Camel 101 and BIGMOON Entertainment announced a release date for the highly anticipated survival horror game, Syndrome, this week.

Syndrome looks to be unleashing the best parts of modern day horror games and integrating traditional elements from old school horror games like Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and System Shock. This means limited items, tough as nails enemies that will have you thinking on your feet, and an intense, nail-biting atmosphere.

I will say that I’m a complete sucker for the derelict starship setting that Syndrome is touting. Think System Shock, Event Horizon, and Alien, all three of which are respectively shining examples of successful sci-fi horror. Syndrome will be pitting you against horrifying monstrosities and unholy abominations that have slaughtered the denizens and crew members of your starship, which is now hopelessly adrift in space.

It’s now up to you to uncover the mystery of what happened during your time in cryosleep and who –or what– unleashed the beasts that slaughtered the crew.

Syndrome is set to release for PC on October 6, 2016 with a console release date set for some time in 2017.

Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Loading PS5

New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.

The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.

The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.

Check out the full video below.

Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.

A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
