Phantom 8 Studio is delighted to share a new story trailer today for its upcoming psychological thriller, PAST CURE — which releases worldwide on February 23, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digitally and at retail for $29.99!
PAST CURE is a cinematic experience that challenges players to use mind-bending mental abilities to survive, as well as the mastery of gunplay, melee combat and stealth. You won’t have to wait long to begin deciphering the mystery; a PAST CURE demo releases on Steam early next week.
After years of disappearance, Ian, a former elite soldier, suddenly appears … changed. Ian’s brother shelters him in a far off safe house to come to grips with his memory loss and the effects of the experiments he was forced to endure. In an attempt to tap into the hidden power of the mind, Ian’s captors left him scarred with unrelenting nightmares, visions and unstable powers such as time manipulation and telekinesis.
Driven by his desperate need for the truth and a thirst for revenge, Ian sets out on a thrilling hunt for the masterminds of this conspiracy. As Ian plunges into a criminal underworld in pursuit of a new lead, he is forced to use his mental powers to survive. But with each use, his mind becomes ever more detached from reality, revealing the presence of an even darker force at play.
A Story-Driven Supernatural Thriller: Follow the struggle of a broken man searching for the missing pieces of his mind. With intense cutscenes and intriguing story items throughout the levels, players can unravel a story that will keep them guessing until the end.
Action vs. Stealth: Be bold and engage your enemies with time-bending gun battles and brutal jaw-crunching combos. Or pick the stealthy approach where evasion tactics and slick takedowns allow you to outsmart your enemies in silence. Choose the right approach to each situation as there are pros and cons to each play style.
Mind-Bending Abilities: Unleash the power of Ian’s mind against those who unlocked it. Players must utilize time manipulation and astral projection to gain an edge on opponents and overcome obstacles.
Dreams vs. Reality: Ian’s mind is torn between the gritty real world and a nightmarish dreamscape. PAST CURE switches between cold, brutal combat-orientated levels of the real world, to puzzle and survival-based gameplay in the abstract dream world.
