Funcom and fellow Norwegian developer Rock Pocket Games are teaming up to serve up some bone-chilling, Lovecraft-ian dread with Moons of Madness, the first-person cosmic horror game coming this Halloween!
Set on Mars in a not-so-distant future, take up the role of Shane Newehart, an Orochi technician stationed at the secret research base Invictus. Your low security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of a mysterious, intelligent signal that has been detected as coming from the red planet. Your job seemed simple enough: keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives, bringing with it a new team to relieve you of your duties. Soon, you discover strange and unusual setbacks; crucial systems are malfunctioning, the greenhouse is filled with a strange mist, and the rest of your team has yet to return from their mission. You begin seeing and hearing things that aren’t there. Visions, hallucinations – or is that even what it is? Is this real?
Moons of Madness draws upon the rich lore and mythology of Secret World Legends. Both games exist in the same thematic universe, but playing one is not a prerequisite to enjoy the other.
The game will be released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 during the Halloween season 2019. For more information, please visit www.moonsofmadness.com.
