First-person survival horror game, Agony will be released late next month on multiple systems.
Announced via a trailer, Agony will be releasing on May 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Agony was funded by Kickstarter back in November 2016 and takes place in an extremely brutal interpretation of hell. Players take control of a tormented soul whose memories of his past have been erased. In order to escape the pits of hell, players will need to meet the Red Goddess, who is the only entity with the knowledge of an escape route. While on their journey, players will be able to use a special ability that allows them to control people or even possess demons. This ability will greatly help when trying to survive the harsh and dangerous conditions found withing hell.
Due to the location Agony takes place in, it is understandable that this game was designed with an adult player base in mind. Besides all of the brutal violence featured in the trailers, the game also features a lot of nudity, some of which is used in a disturbing manner. As a result, Agony has had to be altered for its release on Xbox and PlayStation 4 because games with an AO (Adult Only) rating are not allowed on those systems. Luckily for PC players, they can download an optional patch that allows them to revert Agony back to its original version. So, if you want to see all the brutal and disturbing things this game has to offer, it’s all just a download away.
Agony is being developed by Madmind Studio, a studio which features many developers who have worked on titles such as The Division, The Witcher 3, and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2.
Personally, I am pretty excited about the release of Agony. It is unfortunate that console players won’t get to experience the full scale of the games depravity, but I doubt much will be altered.
