Never one to shy away from embracing a date with eerie connotations, Song of Horror is set to follow up its debut on Halloween with the launch of the third episode in the story on the equally superstitious Friday 13th.
Or, more specifically, Friday December 13th. Yes, Episode 3 of Song of Horror – the fresh new take on the survival horror adventure, which throws permadeath and multiple lead characters into the mix – will launch on Steam on said fearful date, handing players the opportunity to continue taking on The Presence as they try and track down missing writer Sebastian P. Husher and get rid of the cursed titular song.
Following the trail of evidence, the third episode sees play moves to the University – both Husher’s place of work, and mysteriously the last place he was seen alive. Players will find themselves joining forces with some of Husher’s closest acquaintances, bringing in new threads of plot as The Presence ups its attacks and the truth looms large.
The first two episodes of Song of Horror are already available on Steam, with a further two to come in 2020. Indeed, the entire package can be purchased in the form of the Founder Limited Edition.
All five episodes each pay homage to a specific survival horror genre classic. The debut episode – which sees the player encounter The Presence for the first time – tips its hat to Infogrames’ classic series Alone in the Dark, while episode two is especially pleasing for any fans of the phenomenal Silent Hill. The brand news third episode, however, owes most to survival horror classic Obscure.
