Asymmetrical Horror Comes to Smartphones With Identity V
An asymmetrical horror game is something I definitely wasn’t expecting to see coming to smartphones, but Chinese developer technology NetEase is making that a reality with Identity V.
As like many other asymmetrical horror games like Dead by Daylight and the Friday The 13th: The Game, one player will take on the role of a murderer as they seek to chase down the four survivor players. Although, one of the things that sets Identity V apart from its competition, aside from the fact that it is a mobile game, is the art style seemingly heavily inspired by Tim Burton’s work on films like the Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride. The game uses paid for cosmetics and a free-to-play model, although, there are some items available to unlock through in-game achievements.
At the moment, the game is only accessible to users who have access to the Chinese app stores. However, due to the success in the Chinese mobile market, there are plans for a worldwide release of the game.
