Fear Knows No End With Newest Chapter: Roots of Dread
What is fear? What is it made of and what fuels it? That’s what fans will try to answer as they meet the latest Killer to step into the Fog: The Dredge. A formless mass of twisted limbs writhing in the shadows, The Dredge is nothing less than a manifestation of darkness itself. With a “monster under the bed” approach, it comes with a very special Power: the ability to teleport between Lockers to catch unsuspecting Survivors when they feel safe out of harm’s reach.
Those who prefer to play as Survivor will have their share of excitement as they get to personify the brave and bold Haddie Kaur. Born in India, Haddie moved to Quebec with her family as a child. After losing her biological parents in a tragic car accident, she was raised by a Quebec family who was close friends of her parents. Haddie’s foray into the paranormal came early on, fuelling her with courage, determination, and a dash of morbid curiosity. Having fought monsters in the past makes her one of the few Survivors prepared to face off with Killers in the Entity’s Realm. Fans may recognize her from her appearances in the Archives and can now take the reins of her destiny as a Survivor.
The Garden of Joy is the new disturbing Map players will get to experience – a scenic paradise set in a quaint American town hiding big secrets. The main building for this Map will be a classic family home, a ghostly symbol of domestic horror set against a cold and dreadful backdrop.
Roots of Dread will be available on June 7th, 2022 on Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Epic Games Store, Windows Store, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia.
