Regular readers will know that we're not huge fans of CG trailers, but we'll make an exception for Hell is Us. This newly announced action title goes for an intriguingly weird tone in its debut teaser, which features strange hollowed-out human bodies and a cloaked figure with a big glowing sword.
Going by the press release, it sounds like Hell is Us has a strong focus on exploration. Creative director Jonathan Jacques-Belletête explains: "There's no need for a detailed quest log or precise waypoint on the map: we want players to feel the thrill of adventure, guided by their feelings and instincts."
Of course, we don't know what the actual gameplay looks like yet, but this trailer's caught our attention. A quick overview reads: "Hell is Us is a third-person action-adventure game set in a semi-open world where the main character sets out to learn more about his past in a country ravaged by civil war. The almost total self-sufficiency of the country hides a dark secret: the recent appearance of supernatural creatures resembling ancient headstones and monuments in the region. The citizens call this phenomenon "the Calamity". Armed with weapons specially forged to fight these monsters, the protagonist must learn how to defeat them and use his equipment wisely."
Hell is Us is aiming for a 2023 release on PlayStation 5, but are you interested? Try to avoid stepping on all of the bodies in the comments section below.
