Get ready to go to Hell.
Madmind Studio has just announced AGONY — a first-person survival horror game where you must escape the ultimate prison: Hell itself.
You begin your journey through The Underworld as a tormented soul with no memories and no physical body. You move through the world by possessing the people and demons you meet, using their flesh to further explore the underworld and unlock memories of your life.
Your ultimate destination: A meeting with the mysterious “Red Goddess,” who holds the key to escaping eternal torment.
It’s an intriguing concept, and the art style is hellishly visceral — complete with pools of blood, piles of corpses and rivers of fire.
Although this is Madmind’s first game, developers there have worked on AAA titles like THE WITCHER 3, THE DIVISION, and more, so AGONY is definitely a game to keep an eye on. We’ll let you know more as soon as more news drops.
In the meantime, check out the first AGONY teaser:

AGONY is scheduled for release on the PS4 and the Xbox One in 2017.
