Publisher Prime Matter and developer Brass Token have announced that the action-adventure The Chant launches this fall on PC, Xbox Series and PlayStation 5. The negative part of the announcement is that the versions of the previous generation, PS4 and Xbox One are cancelled. We show you their new trailer and images.
The Chant is set in a spiritual retreat on a remote island and leads you to try survive against a series of terrors refractors that are triggered after a group chanting ritual goes terribly wrong, opening a portal to a nightmarish dimension called The Gloom.
“This dimension feeds on negative energy and starts to drive you and others crazy, tapping into your own anxieties and fears, and manifesting in the form of interdimensional creatures; ultimately taking you on a journey of psychedelic horror like you’ve never experienced before,” says the studio. “But all is not lost; Only by unraveling the mysteries of the 1970s New Age-style cult and strengthening your mind, body, and spirit can you reverse the chant and avoid being trapped in the dark forever.”
