The long-suffering Scorn gets another launch window — this time, it's October 2022. With a bit of luck, fans might actually play the game some eight years after its announcement.
Ebb Software, which earlier promised an update in December, kept its word and released a short in-game trailer for the project. Aside from the usual intriguing visuals of biomechanical beings, an "October 2022" label briefly appears at the end. The devs also confirmed on Twitter that this is when your "nightmare begins."
In a new monthly update on Kickstarter, Ebb Software said the additional time "will allow the team to make sure the vision for Scorn comes to life in all its spine-chilling, nightmarish glory." The the game's setting is visceral and unique, inspired by many different art forms, as well as nature and human anatomy. The game's artists even said "biology is an endless source of ideas when designing […] models."
After the recent "hostile" update on Scorn, the team has been much more cooperative and shared more details than during the whole of last year. Answering fans' questions on social media, the studio revealed that we should expect a "mysterious, deliciously dark, and oozing [story] with atmosphere" from Scorn, with a strong emphasis on the ooze. The team is committed to making the title the best experience possible.
Earlier we learned that the team faced several issues with its lengthy work on the game, with all progress till mid 2018 having to be reworked, and 90 percent of it being scrapped. CEO Ljubomir Peklar has revealed that the team has now reached a 75 percent content completion milestone. From now on, the team will focus on completing the final 25 percent, followed by bug fixing and launch preperations.
Let's hope we'll finally get to play Scorn next October. The game is coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox Game Pass on day one, as well as launching on PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store.
