Developed by the Italian team Invader Studios, based near Rome, the upcoming title is a story-driven third-person survival horror game. In the game, players will assume the role of Special Agent Dalila Reyes, a former government spy now working for H.A.D.E.S. (Hexacore Advanced Division for Extraction and Search), whose goal is to infiltrate the most advanced experimental research center in the United States of America.
You will need nerves of steel because, in the darkness of the abandoned and intricate underground structure, something chilling and lethal is ready to unleash.
The prequel is being touted as a perfect mix of fierce and deadly enemies, hardcore action gameplay mechanics, environmental puzzles, a thrilling soundtrack, freedom of exploration, and massive doses of horror.
