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.
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.
DYING: 1983 will be playable at the Nekcom Entertainment booth at WePlay 2020 from November 14 to 15 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center. The demo will run on a PC.
Update 1:45 p.m.: Nekcom Entertainment has told Gematsu it plans to release DYING: 1983 for PlayStation 5 in Q1 2020, followed by PlayStation 4, Xbox, Switch, and PC at a later date.
