Hide and Shriek is a first-person multiplayer action/horror game developed and published by Funcom. The game will be released via Steam on October 25th, 2016 and is set in the same universe as The Secret World.  
The game is set around Halloween 1991 at Little Springs High School during a tradition where the students of both Little Springs and Innsmouth Academy sneak into school after midnight and scare each other. 
Hide and Shriek is a one vs. one multiplayer game where the purpose is to earn points by scaring the opponent as many times as possible within 10 minutes.
Various objects and abilities are available such as casting spells, summoning demons, setting traps, and jumpscares. Both players are invisible, but can be tracked by observing for doors opening and objects flying in the air or tricking them into revealing their location.  
Before the announcement, it was known that Funcom was already developing a smaller, experimental title using The Secret World's IP similar to The Park in order to familiarize the North Carolina studio with Unreal Engine.  
On October 19th, Funcom released a gameplay trailer and announced the game will be released on October 26th, 2016.
