Wuhan-based Nekcom Entertainment has announced DYING: 1983, the latest entry in its first-person exploration puzzle game series. It will launch for PlayStation 5 this winter.

DYING: 1983

The “grim”-themed sequel features a story full of strange elements and set in a new world that is close to reality, but different in every way. It offers twice the amount of puzzles of its predecessor—the January 2018-released DYING: Reborn—as well as traps and enemies that threaten the player’s survival. Players will find hundreds of items that can be used in various ways to solve puzzles. In total, the game is expected to take over 10 hours to complete.
