The Chant ‘Gameplay Overview’ trailerA look at how the game combines survival, action, and exploration mechanics.
Publisher Prime Matter and developer Brass Token have released the gameplay overview trailer for horror action adventure game The Chant.
Here is an overview of the game, via Prime Matter:
A single-player, third person horror action-adventure game set on a remote island spiritual retreat. A peaceful weekend soon turns to dread after a group chant opens The Gloom, a psychedelic dimension of terror that feeds off negative energy. Interact with a recurring cast of characters, untangle the complex history of the island, and witness terrifying revelations about the cosmos. Only you can fight off the creatures, reason with the survivors, and unravel the legacy of a cult from the 1970s to reverse the ritual.
- Explore an Island Filled with Cosmic Dread – Interact with the other members of the retreat as they slowly become consumed by their own negative energy. Survive against an array of prismatic creatures and cultists released from The Gloom as you piece together the weird history of the island.
- Fight or Flight – You must choose your fights and battle for survival with spiritual weapons and abilities. Collect, craft, and manage your resources to take your chances in close combat—or succumb to panic and flee.
- Mind Body Spirit – Balance is everything. Steel your mind against horror and panic; Protect your body against physical threats; Elevate your spirit to meditate and access supernatural abilities.
- Modern Psychedelic Horror – Inspired by the psychedelic horror of the 1970s, experience a landscape of colored lighting and an electronic rock soundtrack, composed by the award-winning Paul Ruskay.
The Chant is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam on November 3.
