Funcom decided to being a treat for Halloween by announcing that their upcoming horror title Moons of Madness will launch is just a couple of weeks.
“We wanted to make a game that combines Lovecraftian elements and Mars exploration,” explains Rock Pocket Games CEO Ivan Moen. “And central to a good Lovecraft experience is the battle that goes on in your own mind. You will face external threats, sure, but having to face your inner demons at the same time is what makes this truly terrifying.”
Moons of Madness is set in the same thematic universe as Funcom’s The Secret World, where conspiracies and dark secrets are commonplace. And although The Secret World-players will recognize certain names and themes, playing one is by no means a prerequisite to enjoy the other.
Moons of Madness launches on PC from October 22nd. A release for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has been slated for a January 21st 2020 release.
