Dreamfall Chapters developer Red Thread Games will release its 2013-announced first-person mystery game Draugen for PC via Steam in 2019, followed later by PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the studio announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via Red Thread Games:
From the studio that brought you Dreamfall Chapters, and the creative team behind The Longest Journey and The Secret World, comes a first-person psychological mystery set in 1920s Norway.
The year is 1923. You play Edward Charles Harden, an American traveler who’s come to Norway to find his missing sister. But you’re not alone: at every step of the way, Edward’s accompanied by his ward, Lissie; a gregarious, independent and enigmatic young woman. Together, you must explore this scenic coastal community — nestled amongst the fjords and mountains of rural Norway — in your search for Edward’s sister, and unearth the darkness that lies beneath the picturesque surface.
Available 2019 on Steam for Windows. Coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
