Nacon and Montreal developer Rogue Factor have revealed a new third-person action-adventure game set for release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2023.

There’s only a tease trailer at the moment and it’s age gated so I can’t post it here but you can go find it on YouTube. I should warn you that the start of it may be a little triggering given the reports coming out Ukraine, but it does take a turn away from that sort of thing quite quickly and go sci-fi.

The creative director on the project is Jonathan Jacques-Belletête who has worked on Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and more recently Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy before joining the team.

Here’s more about the game:

Hell is Us is a third-person action-adventure game set in a semi-open world where the main character sets out to learn more about his past in a country ravaged by civil war. The almost total self-sufficiency of the country hides a dark secret: the recent appearance of supernatural creatures resembling ancient headstones and monuments in the region. The citizens call this phenomenon “the Calamity”. Armed with weapons specially forged to fight these monsters, the protagonist must learn how to defeat them and use his equipment wisely.

Hell is Us is a game in a new genre, one where players explore environments to find information all by themselves. “Our goal with Hell is Us is to bring back true adventure and exploration,” said Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, Creative Director on the project. “There’s no need for a detailed quest log or precise waypoint on the map: we want players to feel the thrill of adventure, guided by their feelings and instincts.”

“We are delighted to be able to finally announce this game,” said Alain Falc, CEO of NACON. “As a publisher, we always want to offer games with original ideas that will appeal to as many people as possible. The first game from Rogue Factor since we acquired it is also one of our most ambitious projects, and we can’t wait to reveal more about it in the coming months.”
